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.

Grand Canal Industrial Estates Inc. (GCIE), a subsidiary of CGX Energy Inc., has begun seeking human resources personnel for its Berbice Deep Water Port facility, located in the new oil producing country of Guyana.

In multiple advertisements in the local press on Sunday, GCIE invited applications to fill the positions of Project Manager, Civil Engineer, and Health, Safety and Environmental Officer.

CGX said in October it was moving ahead with the deep water port facility to service the oil and gas industry as well as to cater to agriculture, commercial and tourism needs. The facility will target supply of fuel, mud, cement, water and electricity and will include a warehouse, workshop, office block, open logistics yard at the port site, and a waste management facility.

The company said it was moving to develop the facility since demand for such services was rapidly increasing with growing exploration and production activities offshore. Already, oil production is underway at the Liza Phase 1 Development and two more projects have already been sanctioned and will come online in 2022 and 2024. ExxonMobil, operator at the Stabroek block, is also ramping up its search for more hydrocarbons offshore the South American country, with one campaign at the Kaieteur block recently concluding and a new drilling exercise at the Canje block likely to get underway by December.

“Exploration activities in the basin are increasing rapidly, with limited local shorebases available, despite a strong desire for local ports to be utilized and local content maximized,” the company said.

CGX said it is also paying close attention to Suriname where U.S multinational Apache has made three discoveries at the offshore Block 58 and exploration activities continue.

The Berbice Deep Water Port facility will be located 4.8 km from the Berbice River mouth which is 11 – 13 hours sailing time to the Stabroek Block and shorter times to the Corentyne, Kanuku, Orinduik and Demerara Blocks. This is compared to 2.5 days from Trinidad, from where much of the offshore activities in both Guyana and Suriname are being serviced.

In 2010, Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission in its land use planning map for Region 6 list the area for the development of a deep seaport, new airport runway of 1.2km and an industrial park.

CGX said the port location can also service import/export of agricultural and other goods which are transported from the landlocked state of Roraima in Brazil when the Brazil/Guyana road is completed.

Phase 1 of the Berbice Deep Water Port facility is targeted for October 2020 to December 2021.
