Major oil services company needs caterers for Guyana operations

Halliburton – one of the world’s largest providers of products and services to the energy industry – is preparing to tender for catering services in support of its activities in Guyana.

In a public Expression of Interest (EOI), Halliburton outlined that the services to its personnel must be provided seven days a week, three times a day across four locations. It said interested vendors must be in possession of a Food Handlers Certificate.

The First Schedule of Guyana’s Local Content Act carves out 40 sectors and sub-sectors for Guyanese businesses, including catering. Contractors, sub-contractors and licensees operating in Guyana are required to source 90% of their catering services from Guyanese businesses. They are also required to source 75% of their food supply from Guyanese businesses.

And very soon, oil and gas companies will have a large pool of qualified caterers as Guyana commenced work on establishing a local catering consortium last year. 

Minister of Natural Resources Vickram Bharrat; Director of the Local Content Secretariat Martin Pertab and other key ministerial and government officers met with over 100 Guyanese-owned catering services to discuss how a consortium can be formed to bid and supply food to the two offshore floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels back in October 2022.  

Both vessels – the Liza Destiny and Liza Unity – are operating in the prolific Stabroek Block. The consortium will benefit from waivers on duties and taxes for machinery and equipment needed to operationalise their work.
