OilNow is an online-based Information and Resource Centre which serves to complement the work of all stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in Guyana.

The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) on Thursday bid farewell to President of ExxonMobil Guyana, Rod Henson, who will be leaving to take up a new post in Houston soon.

GCCI members joined the event virtually at which its President, Nicholas Deygoo-Boyer, presented Henson with a token of appreciation at the Chamber’s Georgetown headquarters.

Henson officially took up the mantle of leadership in Guyana on May 1, 2017.

“Under Rod, the discovered resource estimate increased seven-fold, going from over a billion barrels of recoverable resource to over 8 billion. Relations with the business community were also strengthened with the opening of the Centre for Local Business Development,” Deygoo-Boyer told OilNOW.

Henson was also instrumental in moving the Liza Phase 1 discovery to development with the historic start of oil production in Guyana last December.

He will be replaced by Alistair Routledge, current President and General Manager for ExxonMobil Qatar Limited.
