“We have been doing this for a century” – Mallon addresses safety concerns about Gas-to-Energy pipeline

Must Read

ExxonMobil’s track record of safety in the laying of gas pipelines was underscored on Monday by the President of its Upstream Company Liam Mallon.

“I’ve heard [critics here] talk about the risks of the Gas-to-Energy pipeline. I’ll remind you that 2024 marks the 100th anniversary of our company’s first long-distance, welding pipeline. We have been doing this for a century. We know how to do it safely, reliably and responsibly,” Mallon underscored. 

His remarks were made on the opening day of Guyana’s Energy Conference and Supply Chain Expo.

Exxon is responsible for the installation of the pipeline, while the Guyana government is responsible for an integrated facility earmarked for Wales, on the West Bank of Demerara. The pipeline will transport 50 million cubic feet of natural gas from Guyana’s Liza field to an onshore plant. Pipeline installation has advanced significantly with Exxon set to deliver gas by yearend.

The safety of the project has been called into question by some environmentalists and sections of the media.

Environmentalists have also mounted several challenges to block the permit given to Exxon for the pipeline construction. Those efforts have substantially failed thus far. 

The project, estimated to cost US$1.8 billion to develop, is being marketed as the venture that will help slash electricity rates by 50% along with the enablement of a more attractive business environment.
