The Guyana Oil and Gas Energy Chamber (GOGEC) is one of the many stakeholders, which called for local services and products to be significantly utilised in the oil sector.

As such, when the GOGEC's Chairman, Manniram Prashad, learnt on Tuesday that ExxonMobil has made use of 309 Guyanese-owned suppliers and has 605 Guyanese businesses registered, he was obviously elated.
But the businessman is curious to know the names of these businesses as well as the areas in which the suppliers served ExxonMobil.

Prashad told Kaieteur News yesterday, “If these figures are accurate then we would obviously be happy about it; but 309 Guyanese-owned suppliers?
That is just concerning when there is no evidence provided at the same time to support it. Hence, we would like the evidence of this.

We would like to have a list of the companies and the services they provided and when.”This information was not provided on Tuesday when ExxonMobil's Public and

Government Affairs Advisor, Kimberly Brassington, delivered a presentation on the work being done by her company thus far.

Her delivery took place at an oil and gas seminar that was hosted by the Private Sector Commission at Duke Lodge Hotel. Local Content was just one of the topics Brassington touched on.

Brassington said that Local Content is important and critical to ExxonMobil's success in Guyana.

The Public Affairs Advisor said that 605 Guyanese businesses have registered in ExxonMobil's supplier database. She said that those are companies, which have expressed interest in being part of the supply chain.

She said that 70 of them are taking courses in order to build capacity in areas like procurement and safety.

Last year, Brassington said that ExxonMobil and its contractors provided 30,000 hours of capacity training to Guyanese.
