Schedule for the gas-to-energy public consultations

Guyana’s energy demand is expected to significantly increase over the next five years, and so, its government plans to boost supply and reduce the cost of electricity by 50 percent using natural gas, with later additions of power by a variety of renewable sources.

The gas-to-energy project will see a power plant being constructed to generate 250 megawatts (MW) of power and a Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) plant to cover Guyana’s domestic demand for other natural gas products.

A 225 km 12” pipeline will be constructed to transport the guaranteed minimum of 50 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of natural gas to the Wales Development Authority, where the onshore facilities will be located.

GTE is expected to be one of the most transformational projects in Guyana’s history.
