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.

A number of Government of Guyana Ministries and agencies’ staff are expected to be part of a three-day oil spill management workshop to be held at the Pegasus Hotel and at Splashmin’s Resort during the latter half of October.

The training is to be conducted by ExxonMobil affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL). The course has been prepared by the University of Spill Management (UoSM). While the first two days are for classroom activity, the third day will see the participants heading to Splashmin’s Resort for training in the deployment and use of the oil spill equipment.

A number of Government Ministries and agencies in the South American country have been asked to nominate up to two persons each to take part in the training, and OilNOW understands participation is expected to be high.

During the first two days, participants will be briefed on facility safety and on the Guyana exploration and discoveries, given facts about oil spills, look at response strategies, the use of dispersants and planning cycle processes, and the development of work and safety plans.

The course is designed to develop a person’s knowledge of the fundamentals of oil spill response, enhancing their practical response skills and all-round tactical action planning. It is taught by experienced oil spill response experts, alongside ExxonMobil personnel. The course is usually customized to clients’ operational needs.
