Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell has announced that “significant gas and oil” deposits have been found in the territorial waters of Grenada.

Prime Minister Mitchell’s announcement at a massive rally in St. Andrew late Sunday ends lingering speculation in Grenada’s hunt to find oil and gas.

The discovery was made by Russian outfit Global Petroleum Group (GPG) which has been undergoing an exploratory drilling campaign.

“After all the headaches, one Well was drilled; there were results that we wanted to confirm before we make a noise,” Prime Minister Mitchell announced.

“The report said that we have found significant gas and oil in the waters of Grenada in one Well so far” Dr. Mitchell stated to loud applause and cheering.

The Prime Minister also announced the finding of several more oil wells which he said offered more exciting prospects.

“You know what that means for your future, it means a lot for the future of this country,” the Prime Minister said.

“Sisters and brothers, one Well, we have several more wells which are even more exciting than the one they just found. In other words, Grenada can be a massive supplier of oil and gas.”

    Dr. Keith Mitchell, in his capacity as leader of a Political Party misused the podium of a campaign event to make a Government “announcement”. This is bad governance.

    And what is new with this “announcement”? It is well known since decades that we have gas and oil underneath our coastal waters.
    A serious statement would have given information like where it is (it is published information for the safety of maritime navigation), an estimate regarding quantity, a valuation of quality and an outlook on the timespan needed to go productive.

    Nothing concrete, it is fishy. No better highlight after 5 years of going backward and giving away our assets for peanuts?
