We also did the logistics side of it…this included transportation, custom brokerage. All, we did it in a single day,” he stated.

Speaking to this recent activity, the Operations Manager said, “It complements what we’ve been doing with other vessels. We brought that expertise to the Bourbon Rhesos…We’ve been doing work for Bourbon a few years now.”

A number of other projects are upcoming for the company, including the arrival of another supply vessel. “We have other projects coming. The supply vessel will be coming soon to Guyana and this is being complemented with the Bourbon Diamond and the Bourbon Clear. They belong to the same fleet,” Ramoutar said.  He shared that they continue to improve their services in the sector, and aim to do so in a timely and efficient manner.

For the Bourbon Rhesos, he added, “In the short 2 to 3 days that the vessel was in port, we were able to do everything for it within that time for it to be able to sail out with everything it needs to access the Liza One development field.”

He added that the company looks forward to the growing opportunities that the oil and gas sector in providing in Guyana. They intend to capitalize on the developments in neighbouring Suriname as well, and will seek to tap into that market.

“…Marine traffic, the most populated one is the Demerara River but the expansion of the region six aspect of the Suriname and Guyanese block will see a lot of projects open in the Corentyne area. When that project becomes viable for a shore base to be there…whenever the vessels will be docked, we will be here to supply them and serve them,” Ramoutar said.
