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.

Minister of Natural Resources Vickram Bharrat on Wednesday met with British High Commissioner to Guyana, Greg Quinn, where they discussed a number of areas of collaboration including oil and gas.

During the meeting, Mr. Bharrat commended the outgoing High Commissioner for his exemplary service and his support for the preservation of Guyana’s democracy.

“The dialogue centred on capacity building within the oil and gas sector, forestry, and Guyana’s access to UK markets for greenheart lumber and forest products, among other issues relating to Brexit and possible collaboration for future trade,” the Ministry said in a press release.

The Natural Resources Minister used the opportunity to extend appreciation to High Commissioner Quinn for his sterling service to Guyana and wish him well in all future endeavours. Quinn was among member of the local diplomatic missions calling for the preservation of democracy in Guyana prior to, during and after the general and regional elections of March 2, 2020.

At the Aberdeen Guyana Gateway virtual conference on August 19 and 20, this year, High Commissioner Quinn encouraged the UK businesses at the event to consider Guyana as an investment destination. He predicted that oil wealth will lead to Guyana having a vastly expanded market and significantly wealthier population.

At the event, the High Commissioner told members of the panel that Scottish entities desirous of doing business in Guyana must be sure to create business to business (B2B) links or set up local offices as a means of building partnerships with Guyanese enterprises.

“Just to reinforce, the importance of benefitting the local population and ensuring that as much money as possible stay in Guyana to benefit the local population will be at the forefront of the mind of the new government,” he said.
