ExxonMobil Guyana is looking for firms to provide a Screening Level Assessment of current and future landfill opportunities for its industrial waste.

The study, it said, is intended to further develop the company’s long-term waste management strategy.

“Note that “industrial” refers to non-biodegradable (i.e., no landfill gas), non-hazardous wastes from Exxon’s activities,” read a public Request for Information (RFI).

The company explained that the Haags Bosch Landfill (HBL) is the only engineered landfill in Guyana for the disposal of municipal solid waste and non-hazardous commercial/industrial waste.

“Against this backdrop, consideration is being given to performing a screening-level identification and assessment study of potential opportunities to develop a dedicated industrial waste disposal facility in Guyana for non-biodegradable (no landfill gas), non-hazardous waste only,” ExxonMobil Guyana said.

The facility’s main purpose would be to support the expanding waste disposal needs of Exxon’s activities, especially its offshore activities. The company currently has two massive production vessels and six drillships operating offshore Guyana. A third FPSO is set to arrive later this year.

“Identified opportunities, if feasible in light of technical considerations, socioeconomic factors, cost, and required Government approvals, may potentially be funded by private investor(s) and may be privately operated,” the company said.
