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.

British High Commissioner to Guyana Greg Quinn is hopeful that there is a contingent from South America’s newest oil and gas hotspot to an Aberdeen oil and gas conference billed for September 2019 since the country will benefit from discussions there as it prepares for first oil.

Quinn was speaking in a video blog he published following his return to Guyana from the Offshore Technology Conference which took place in Houston Texas last week.

“At OTC there was a real and well deserved buzz about Guyana and businesses and government here in Guyana are keen to make the most of that buzz,” he said.

The High Commissioner noted that the Guyana Office for Investment (GO-Invest), the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) and the businesses from Guyana who travelled to Houston, Texas are to be commended for the work they are doing to promote Guyana and to ensure that Guyanese companies and the Guyanese people benefit from oil.

“Power sessions to discuss Guyana were packed. I also have large amounts of interest from British companies and trade groups such as the Energy Industries Council and Scottish Development International, all of whom are keen to work with Guyanese partners. I look forward to making these linkages going forward between Guyanese companies and British companies,” he stated.

He said this will also include links between Aberdeen and Georgetown councils, all designed to share experiences and lessons learnt as was made clear during the visit of Lord Provost of Aberdeen with the subsequent signing of the twinning agreement earlier this year.

“The next big event in the oil and gas calendar is Offshore Europe in Aberdeen in September. I look forward to helping ensure good Guyanese participation in that event to allow those who go to promote Guyana once again for the benefit of Guyana and the Guyanese people,” he said.
