Ruling party advocates for an Energy Committee

ParliamentWILLEMSTAD – The ruling party, Pueblo Soberano (PS) wants a temporary Standing Committee in Parliament on Energy. In a statement the party writes to be happy that other factions in Parliament also see the importance of such committee.

The tasks of the Committee are to inform themselves on the development of a

LNG plant, a cleaner energy source  for the Isla refinery, CRU and the utility company Aqualectra. The Committee should also monitor the process of the modernization of the refinery and gather information about the process of gas and oil extraction.

Another important task is to discuss a sustainable energy policy. The activities

the committee are discussed in Parliament. Central to this is the question of to what extent does the public benefit from the energy policy.
