Find Oil and Gas expertise in Guyana
As of 2010, although oil had been discovered, no indigenous sources of oil or gas had ever been exploited in Guyana. Coupled with absence of oil refinery facilities, the country must import all of its oil and gas requirements. In 2010 Guyana imported over 10,350 barrels of oil a day. However, the discovery of petroleum in the Takutu Basin, exploration activities at the offshore and onshore coastal section of the Guyana basin, and the granting of exploration concessions to six companies in 2009 indicate the potential of the development of an upstream oil sector in the country. Companies involved in exploration include ExxonMobil and CGX and Repsol. Licences for the import of petroleum and petroleum products must be obtained from the Guyana Energy Agency.
