Opposition seriously concerned about LNG

Opposition Spokesman for Industry, Commerce and Energy, Mr. Gregory Mair says he is baffled about issues surrounding the selection of South Korean company Samsung as the preferred bidder to develop Jamaica's liquefied natural gas (LNG) infrastructure after learning that the recently appointed Chairman of the LNG Committee, Dr. Carlton Davis is yet to have negotiations on the proposed multi-billion dollar development and that Samsung did not have the lowest bid.

He called on the Minister of Energy Phillip Paulwell to immediately clear the air on these new developments.

Mr. Mair says that while the previous JLP administration made significant strides in promulgating LNG as a means of reducing the cost of electricity for all, it is deeply disturbed that the government may very well be putting the cart before the horse.
