    Abstract Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) has been an energy producer — from oil to gas — for over 100 years. During that century, the relationship between the state and corporations has evolved, particularly since independence and now in a new century/decade/regime. At the end of the first decade of the new millennium, T&T presents a set of overlapping insights into (1) ‘emerging economies’ and ‘developmental states’; (2) the prospects for small-island developing states (SIDS); (3) opportunities and constraints of ‘globalization(s)’; and (4) prospects for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in such a context of energy concentration. The contribution of energy to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has grown exponentially, from a quarter in the late 1980s to almost half today, with liquefied natural gas (LNG) and petrochemicals being a growing proportion particularly since the early 1990s (Guyadeen, 2010, p. 91).
