Trinidad's economy is strongly influenced by the petroleum industry. Trinidad is the leading Caribbean producer of oil and gas; petroleum, petrochemicals and natural gas continue to be the backbone of the economy. In 2008, the country produced 165,420 barrels per day (bbl/d) of total oil production, of which 114,280 bbl/d was crude oil, the remainder mostly consisting of natural gas liquids (NGLs). Drilling depths have reached up to 7,000 m (23,000ft), while exploration continues to venture into water depths in excess of 150 m (500ft).
