The Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union says its workers will not take responsibility for the fall in production at State-owned oil company, Petrotrin.

OWTU President, Ancel Roget, on Wednesday, acknowledged a significant drop in production values but said the blame must fall on the current administration.

He shared some production statistics, and noted this is happening at a time when the world is enjoying appreciated oil prices.

He's again calling for the removal of people with several key posts at the company, among them Consultant Robert Riley and Chairman Wilfred Espinet.

He took issue with their absentee approach and lack of experience in the oil industry.

He said $63 million in consulting fees was not justified.
