Guyana’s Minister of Natural Resources, Vickram Bharrat, will be the key speaker on a panel discussion at the Madrid Energy Virtual Conference (MEC2020) set to take place this week. The panel discussion will focus on institutional strategy for regulation development, flaring, development of gas to power, and Guyana’s green agenda.

Moderators on the panel include Kevin Ramnarine, Former Minister of Energy, Trinidad & Tobago and David Voght, Managing Director, IPD Latin America.

The virtual Madrid Energy Conference brings together senior business executives and government officials from Latin America, Europe, and the world to explore the vast cross-regional opportunities at the intersection of exploration and production, infrastructure, renewables, and finance.

According to the organisers of the event, the inaugural edition of the Madrid Energy Conference in September 2019 was a ground-breaking assembly of top-level executives and government officials from Latin America, Europe, and the world. Discussion centered on the vast cross-regional opportunities at the intersection of infrastructure, renewables, natural gas, regulation, and finance.

“A general consensus emerged that the global energy transition demands cooperation, not competition and, moreover, oil and gas companies must lead the way, the organisers said.

MEC2020 will feature a wealth of content, solutions, an abundance of virtual networking opportunities and provide the region with an invaluable platform from which to drive investment, growth, and prosperity in Latin America.

“The conference gathers the brightest minds and the most engaging and well-respected commercial, policy, and regulatory thought leaders to discuss trends, gain perspective, and explore opportunities for the next year,” the organisers stated.

MEC2020, which is being organised by the Institute of the Americas, IPD Latin America, and Global Event Partners, will take place from September 28 to October 2. OilNOW is the official Guyana Media Partner for this event.
