US-based energy and technology company Baker Hughes is looking for a firm in Guyana to assist in the supply of warehousing space for its operations in the South American country.
The “locally qualified and registered company with local experience” would be required to supply warehousing space in the Georgetown, East Coast or East Bank areas which Baker Hughes said involves meeting its various engineering and HSE standards from its company, and local agencies.
Interested companies must be registered with the Centre For Local Business Development (CLBD) in Guyana in order to send in an Expression of Interest. CLBD has been a resource for information on safety, technical standards, procurement opportunities, tendering processes and project-specific information for local companies in the new oil and gas hotspot.
Baker Hughes provides the oil and gas industry with products and services for oil drilling, formation evaluation, completion, production, and reservoir consulting.
The emerging oil industry in Guyana is serving to provide growing opportunities to local businesses and suppliers and continues to play an integral role in the country’s economy.
ExxonMobil, operator at the 6.6 million acres Stabroek Block, where it has so far found more than 8 billion barrels of oil equivalent resources, has already spent over US$35 million or approximately 7.1 billion Guyana dollars on more than 500 local suppliers in the first quarter of this year.
