GIPEX 2021, Guyana’s most comprehensive oil & gas summit, goes virtual in June
Since its inception in 2018, GIPEX has emerged as one of the most recognised and future-oriented oil & gas events in the Caribbean Region. In 2021, the premier event returns from 28-30 June as an innovative virtual summit.
Gathering the entire oil & gas value-chain, GIPEX has continued to offer industry professionals an ideal platform to connect and collaborate with peers, exchange new ideas and explore promising business avenues in Guyana’s burgeoning hydrocarbons market. The support of a wide array of attendees and participants – ranging from influential ministries to oil & gas super majors, thought-leaders, key investors and regional businesses – has helped GIPEX attain unparalleled prominence as a ‘’must-attend’ event in the global oil & gas calendar. Today, the event is synonymous with a brand built upon promoting consistent, high-quality networking and impeccable business matchmaking.
Guyana’s O&G boom
The boom in Guyana’s oil & gas industry has put the coastal country on an accelerated path of economic and infrastructural development. Despite the deep dents caused by last year’s pandemic, the International Monetary Fund has an upbeat projection of eight per cent growth in GDP – a rise attributed predominantly to expansion in the Guyanese energy industry. Thus far, Guyana has drilled 20 exploration wells, announced 18 commercial discoveries, and found over nine billion barrels of recoverable light crude oil – developments that have placed the tiny Caribbean nation firmly on the global oil & gas map. This year, exploration is planned for 16 more wells, which will further enhance the potential of Guyana as one of the best investment destinations on the planet.
Previous GIPEX was a runaway success
Based upon the overwhelming responses received from a number of international blue-chip companies and heavyweights of the field, GIPEX 2019 edition proved to be a runaway success. The event included ExxonMobil, Baker Hughes, Hess Corporation, Total, Repsol, CNOOC and others in the role of esteemed sponsors. The list of exhibitors included the likes of SAIPEM, Digicel, GuyOil, and Fugro, among many others.
Known for their calibre and invaluable experience, numerous speakers and delegates left an indelible impact on the event, including: Mark Bynoe (Director-Department of Energy, Ministry of the Presidency – Guyana); Hunter Farris (Senior VP, Upstream Oil & Gas Deep Water, ExxonMobil); Ndibi Schwiers (Director, Department of Environment – Guyana); and Gregory P.Hill (President and COO, Hess Corp.), alongside many others.
