Guyanese businesses will have a chance to network and learn from leaders in the oil and gas industry at the inaugural Guyana International Petroleum Business Summit (GIPEX).
GIPEX 2018 is being hosted by the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) from February 7-9. Minister Raphael Trotman says Guyana “is about to take off”.
“We are providing a platform and an opportunity for all of those who speak about local content and the desire to see more of it, to actually shake hands and to actually touch…others who do this and have been doing this for the last 10 and five decades,” he said.
The three-day summit will see 50 local and international companies participating in the event which is being coordinated by Valiant Business Media.
GIPEX 2018 aims to promote Guyana’s oil and gas sector while exposing local businesses to the industry’s best practices. Areas that will be covered during the conference include using oil to remain green; overcoming challenges and supporting the growth of independent, indigenous producers and service providers; and providing government priorities relating to the petroleum industry to provide insight into opportunities available in the future.
On the final day of the summit, there will be an exhibition opened to the public.
