Government has said there is no
immediate threat to power supplies
for Christmas with the repair of a
leaking cross-country gas pipeline,
but business owners are not so cer-
Many are now being urged to put
contingency plans in place just in case
there is a malfunction because of poor
maintenance or sabotage.
In an interview, president of the
Penal/Debe Chamber of Industry and
Commerce Sahid Hosein said T&T
was no longer a civil society, so any-
thing could happen. "Even without
the concern of sabotage, we have to
consider we are not immune to unto-
ward events globally," Hosein said.
Industrial companies should also
step up on security protocols, he said.
He added that T&T did not have
a history of preventative maintenance
and this was why machinery often
But president of the San Fernando
Business Association Daphne Bartlett
said she was reassured by the Gov-
ernment s statements that there would
be no threat to power supplies for the
season. However, she also agreed that
business people must take their own
action to safeguard themselves.
"There is hardly anything to worry
about if the gas leak is corrected.
"However, if there was sabotage---
and I am not saying there was---we
have to put things in place," she said,
adding that many business owners
were already investing in generators
and security lights.
Taurel Teelucksingh of the Princes
Town Business Association said shop-
ping in his region was already high.
He was uncertain whether additional
security should be put in place in the
event of a blackout, saying he did not
have enough details.
On Saturday Trade Minister Vasant
Bharath announced that repairs to
the 56-inch gas line were complete,
and industrial plant operations had
returned to full capacity. Saying the
leak was discovered at the Picton valve
station, Bharath said the leaks were
fully repaired and industrial plants
brought operations back online. He
also said NGC was ensuring that the
gas lines were fully re-pressurised to
ensure that industrial customers had
a full gas supply.
Bharath urged people to continue
to conserve energy.

there were ghosts there.
During the interview
Fraser spotted a uni-

coming up the street and
