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 Caribbean Community said this week in a Communique coming out of the 40th Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government that it remains committed to supporting Guyana in the country’s efforts to preserve its sovereignty in face of a border claim being made by Venezuela.

CARICOM Heads of Government noted Guyana’s request for the International Court of Justice to proceed to the oral hearings on Jurisdiction in light of Venezuela’s failure to submit its Counter Memorial on April 18, 2019, in accordance with the time limit fixed by the Court.

Heads of Government expressed support for the judicial process underway which is intended to bring a peaceful and definitive end to the long-standing controversy between the two countries.

“Heads of Government reiterated their firm and unswerving support for the maintenance and preservation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Guyana,” CARICOM said in a statement.

The 40th Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM was held at Gros Islet, Saint Lucia 3-5, July 2019 under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, Honourable Allen Chastanet.
