ExxonMobil Guyana President, Alistair Routledge, explained recently that Guyana’s place in the global energy arena carries immense significance. He made the comment as he announced that Exxon is once again a lead sponsor of the International Energy Conference and Expo (IECE) 2023.

“Energy is fundamental to human development… Guyana, as a new oil producer of global significance, is ideally positioned to demonstrate how we can meet society’s needs in a sustainable manner,” Routledge said. “Guyana is a thought leader on low carbon development with an ambitious strategy to secure growth and prosperity for the current and future generations.”

These credentials, Routledge explained, place Guyana in the driver’s seat on energy issues regionally, and perhaps even globally. He sees IECE 2023 is an ideal platform to engage in debate and learn.

“ExxonMobil Guyana is proud to be associated with this event and is excited to be part of the transformational journey taking place here in Guyana,” he added.

Scheduled for February 14-17 in the new year, the conference is being held under the theme ‘Harnessing Energy for Development’.

Routledge noted that the theme aligns with the company’s commitment to sustainably produce energy and products to meet society’s needs in a manner that protects people, the environment, and the communities in which the company operates.

Minister of Natural Resources in Guyana, Vickram Bharrat, also endorsed the conference as another opportunity for the country to showcase what it can offer the world.

“Guyana of course is one of the newest oil producing countries in the Latin America and the Caribbean region, and we have been moving at an unprecedented rate in developing our oil and gas sector… At the same time, we have been incentivising and working towards developing the traditional non-oil sector[s],” Bharrat explained.

He said the conference will not only be about Guyana as an oil producing country but one with investment opportunities across a variety of sectors.

IECE was renewed for a second edition early last year, after a successful launch. It had been attended by ExxonMobil Corporation Chair and CEO, Darren Woods, and several heads of States, representing Guyana, Ghana, Suriname and Barbados.

The organisers announced in October that Kurt Baboolall was appointed Chief Executive Officer of International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana (IECEG).
