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.

Chief Executive Officer of the Guyana Oil and Gas Association (GOGA), Bobby Gossai Jr. will be vacating his post at the entity to pursue a Master’s Degree in the field of petroleum, energy economics and finance at the University of Aberdeen in the United Kingdom.

Gossai, one of 16 recipients of a Chevening Scholarship in Guyana this year, told OilNOW on Monday he opted for this field of study in anticipation of opportunities that will become available in Guyana’s oil and gas sector, and the need for skilled personnel.

“I do believe that it’s a choice I made because of the economic development that would be taking place in Guyana over the next 10 to 40 years and to be qualified in a specific area of oil and gas and petroleum in particular and economics, I think is very vital to the development of Guyana,” he said.

GOGA he said will remain in the capable hands of its Directors and the entity will be looking to install a new CEO soon.

“There is an effective Board of Directors. There will be someone who will be undertaking the day-to-day activities that I was, very soon. All the planned activities, including our second conference next March, will continue,” he stated.

GOGA was launched in October 2016 with a mandate to promote a robust oil and gas industry in Guyana and to advocate for comprehensive, science-based policies, and effective and transparent market principles.

Under Gossai’s stewardship, the organization held its first major oil and gas conference and exposition in March; the first of its kind to be held in the South American country, which was deemed a huge success. GOGA has also been organizing a series of public lectures on oil and gas over the months. These events have served to educate and raise awareness among Guyanese about both the promise and perils of resource wealth.
