Dutch floater specialist SBM Offshore has provided 30,000 pieces of protective gear to the Civil Defence Commission (CDC) in Guyana to help with the agency’s national response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a press update on Wednesday, SBM Offshore said its Country Manager, Herve Laurioux, handed over the items to Director General of the CDC, Lieutenant Colonel Kester Craig, at the company’s Prashad Nagar, Georgetown office last Friday.

“The safety and health of everyone during this pandemic is a top priority. SBM Offshore is happy to provide personal protective equipment to the CDC to help with its important COVID-19 response in affected communities,” Mr. Laurioux said.

Lieutenant Colonel Craig said the CDC welcomed the donation from SBM Offshore and stated that the supplies will be distributed to frontline workers.

“We appreciate this gesture and definitely will ensure that these supplies get to those persons who need it the most so that they can effectively carry out their duties,” the CDC Director General said.

The supplies included 15,000 masks and 15,000 gloves.

As the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic intensifies, SBM Offshore said its priority remains the health and safety of staff, contractors, their families, and the communities around the world in which it operates.

In Guyana, SBM Offshore is the builder and operator of the Liza Destiny FPSO which is currently producing oil at the Stabroek Block some 120 miles offshore.
