Guyana National Seminar of the New Petroleum Producers Discussion Group
The Good Governance: Preparing for First Oil in Guyana seminar is taking place in Georgetown on the 17 and 18 November 2016. A high-level discussion on 17 November will feature ministers, members of parliament, high-ranking civil servants and civil society leaders. Following the significant oil discovery made offshore in Guyana, this seminar is designed to help policy-makers prepare for first oil production, to review policy options and the trade-offs involved in pursuing the various options; and to discuss what changes in laws and institutions will be required to best prepare for oil production. On 18 November, members of the legal and accountancy professions will be invited to participate in a more focused training session on finance and the legal framework for the petroleum sector. Discussions on both days will be enriched by participants from other emerging and established producer countries as well as oil industry representatives.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
