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.

The topic of oil and gas will be subject to debate and discussions in Guyana during the 2018 Youth Parliament which opens on Wednesday, August 15, 2018, at Parliament Building, Georgetown. 

During a Press Conference about the event on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, Parliamentary Executive Assistant, Carlleta Charles related that the topic will be featured in one of the seven motions to be debated, and will be dealt with by the University level Youth Parliamentarians. 

“It’s focused mainly on some of the aspects of last year’s motion,” she shared, further revealing that among the issues to be debated is one “for Guyana to get a local oil refinery.”  

While no in-depth details were provided, she revealed that the issue would be discussed so as to provide the opportunity for the young people to “discuss and generate ideas on current legislation and policies and their implications for youths” and provide a broader awareness of national issues “and the process by which they can address those issues.” 

The fourth Annual Youth Parliament will be held for two days, and this year there has been an increase in the number of participants from 37 in 2017 to 72. The participants will be garnered from secondary schools across Guyana and the University of Guyana.

  2. When these youths discuss, they must also include issues which concern all the citizens of Guyana. These are:
    INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT
    SOCIAL CONDITIONS
    INFLATION AND THE ECONOMY
