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 decision to engage Former Petroleum Advisor to President David Granger, Dr Jan Mangal will now rest on the shoulders of the newly appointed Head of the Department of Energy, Dr Mark Bynoe.

This is according to Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, who said, “That will be a decision that will be made by the Department of Energy at a time when they are looking at the skills that they need for the department and if there is a skill that he possesses and they find that that is the best possible skill then it is up to the Department to decide whether they need his service.”

Dr Mangal served as the Presidential Advisor for two years and his contract came to an end earlier this year. Since the expiration of his contract, Dr Mangal has been very outspoken about the Government’s approach to the oil and gas sector and is on record criticizing a number of actions the administration has taken, or failed to take, in the lead up to first oil.
