State-owned Petrotrin has paid $63.6 million to consultants for services from July 2017 to date.

The information was given by the Energy Ministry in Parliament via written reply to questions from United National Congress MP Suruj Rambachan. He'd asked the names of all individuals/companies retained by Petrotrin as consultants from July 2017 and total amounts paid to them.

The ministry's reply stated that the total cost of the services from July 2017 to date was $63,610,158. 23.

The highest amount - $28 million - was paid last November to McKinsey and Company Inc (a US company) for a strategic review and transition. The lowest figure - $100,000 - was paid to HRC associates for executive recruitment. Petrotrin also paid Swiss executive recruitment experts Egon Zehnder $3.7m for services.
