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.

The Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS) says 2020 has been a successful year ranging from its responsibility to monitor the million-barrel oil lifts offshore to prepping companies onshore for opportunities in the oil and gas sector.

According to a press update from the Department of Public Information (DPI) in Georgetown, GNBS Public Relations Officer, Lloyd David, said ensuring the accuracy of measurements of the Liza crude being produced at the Stabroek block offshore Guyana was a key activity of the agency this year.

December 20, 2020, marked one year since Guyana became an oil producing nation.

“It’s not only monitoring and measurements. We also work with companies who are actually supplying the oil and gas sector, with implementation of certain international standards and we have managed to do very well this year,” David was quoted by the DPI as saying.

Several companies interested in providing services to the oil and gas sector had approached the GNBS for help, the DPI stated in its update.

“We actually manage to engage sixteen companies, who are interested primarily in the implementation of safety standards and quality standards that are internationally recognized,” David explained. “We have taken three companies to certification readiness. We at the GNBS; we cannot certify a company to international standards, but we can offer the technical assistance they need to take them to the ‘door’ of certification.”

The three companies that the GNBS worked with are now ready to be internationally certified while another three are expected to be ready before the year ends.

“They want to prove that whatever they are doing are of quality, so they would want to implement the ISO 9001 standard, they want to manage their risk and you want to demonstrate via the standard that you are constantly improving what you are doing as a company,” he said.

Several companies have attained ISO 9001 certification in the last two years, including those providing services in metal work and fabrication, security, human resource development and recruitment.

The Liza Destiny FPSO is producing oil offshore Guyana for Phase 1 of the Liza development. Two more projects have so far been approved and this will see production exceeding 500,000 barrels per day 2024.
