…special consideration to be given to businesses fully owned by nationals
The Caribbean Oil and Gas Virtual Summit (CARIVS), which proved to be a success when hosted for the first time in 2020, will be held again this year and this time with complimentary access to all indigenous companies.
In a statement on Thursday, the event’s organisers announced that CARIVS 2022 is scheduled for March 15-16, 2022 with the focus on Inter-regional Collaboration for Oil and Gas Development.
With local content development being the prime focus of the CARIVS agenda, indigenous companies will be given special consideration. Indigenous companies include all companies within Guyana, Suriname and the larger Caribbean region that are fully owned by nationals of the aforementioned countries and are not subsidiaries of an international company.
At CARIVS 2020, over 1,300 registered participants engaged in the networking and business development opportunities made available. While Exxon Mobil was the main sponsor, others sponsoring and exhibiting included Sol Petroleum, HESS Corporation, Schlumberger, SBM Offshore, Saipem Guyana Inc. and more.
Meanwhile, some featured speakers then were Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley; Minister of Natural Resources, Vickram Bharrat; Former High Commissioner of Canada to Guyana and Ambassador to Suriname, Lillian Chaterjee and President of ExxonMobil Guyana, Alistair Routledge.
CARIVS 2022 will focus on key policies and strategies, business prospects available in the region, enhancing interregional collaborations for sustainable growth and local content development in the region
