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.

As Guyana prepares for oil production in a matter of months, focus is continuing to be placed on the attractive Guyana-Suriname Basin, with the convening of the One Basin Three Countries Energy Conference for the Guianas which gets underway today – October 24 – in Suriname.

Under the theme ‘The transition to a Sustainable Energy based Economy’, the conference is to take place over the course of two days at the Royal Ballroom Torarica in Paramaribo Suriname.

The discussion themes of the conference include:

  • Doing sustainable business in the Guianas
  • Strategically positioning the Guianas as an energy hub
  • Opportunities in regional markets and developing a collaborative approach
  • Supply Chain developments – the role of SMEs, startups and international cooperation/partnerships
  • Capacity building with a focus on training and skills
  • Development in an environmentally sound and safe manner
  • Infrastructure planning and development
  • Managing socio-economic impacts and delivering benefits to the Guianas

Speaking at the two-day event are Guyanese economist Bobby Gossai Jr., former CEO of the Guyana Oil and Gas Association Inc. and Guyanese Attorney at Law and oil and gas consultant Charles Ramson Jr.

Other speakers at the event will be Rachel Raveles, Director – Ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism of Suriname; Sjoerd Poort of the Netherlands and Managing Director Dutch Council for International Business; and Neil McIntosh, Managing Director of the Aberdeen International Association.

The Guiana-Suriname Basin is set to become the next hot-spot in Offshore Oil & Gas Exploration activities in the region. OBTN says its mission is to contribute to the sustainable development of energy revenues in the Guiana Basin by bringing together all stakeholders involved within the One Basin Three Nations framework, as the premier Energy Seminar/Conference in the region.
