GIPEX goes virtual in April 2021
Kaieteur News – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers of the Guyana International Petroleum Summit and Exhibition (GIPEX) have decided to host the third summit on a new virtual reality platform. It will be held April 6-8, 2021.
GIPEX is an annual petroleum summit and exhibition attended by officials along the Guyana oil and gas value chain, as well as public officials, policymakers, academics and other interested parties. It allows those parties to network, discuss industry developments, discuss issues, showcase products and brands, and learn about the market. GIPEX is widely supported by ExxonMobil and other oil companies operating in Guyana, as well as their subcontractors. Speakers at the previous annual GIPEX summit were attended by a series of oil companies, private sector leaders, government ministers and heads of agencies.
The Summit is held to generate excitement and bring exposure to Guyana’s oil sector. Since 2015, 22 Guyana offshore hydrocarbon discoveries have been made, with 18 of those determined to be commercial to date. The Guyana Stabroek Block alone has been proven to have approximately nine billion oil-equivalent barrels.
The principal organizer of GIPEX is Valiant Business Media. Its partners in its initiative are the Government of Guyana and the Guyana Manufacturers and Services Association (GMSA).
