Guyana is set to host a major petroleum summit before the year ends, which organizers say will open strategic dialogue and place the South American country as a favorable and pro-business destination.
The inaugural Guyana International Petroleum Business Summit & Exhibition (GIPEX 2017) will be held from November 22 – 24 at the Guyana Marriott Hotel, in the country’s capital, Georgetown.
According to the organizers, key stakeholders associated with Guyana’s Petroleum Sector, including government ministries and agencies, associations, industry experts, and national and international oil companies, are expected to be part of the event.
The summit, being organized by UK-based Valiant Business Media in collaboration with the Guyana government, is intended to present investors with options to explore the huge potential of Guyana. It will provide an excellent networking platform for existing petroleum companies, service providers, equipment companies and investors through which interested parties will be informed about opportunities and developments in the sector, and industries.
Guyana’s first major oil and gas conference and exhibition was held in March and was organised by the Guyana Oil and Gas Association (GOGA).
The country is set to become a key oil producer in the region, with production scheduled to begin in 2020 by US super-major, ExxonMobil.
