The International Energy Conference and Expo 2023 welcomed Guyana Shore Base Inc. (GYSBI) onboard as a gold sponsor of the event, February 14–17, 2023.
Kurt Baboollal, Chief Executive Officer of the International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana 2023 said, “I’d like to extend a warm welcome to GYSBI as a new gold sponsor of the conference and expo. As a Guyanese company, GYSBI is demonstrating leadership in Guyana’s energy industry and will be displaying its extensive service offerings to the Guyanese public at the expo. They have grown and expanded quite largely over the past years, and we are excited to see all that has been taking place.”
GYSBI was formed in 2017 to provide shore base services to ExxonMobil following the discovery of oil. Throughout the past five years, GYSBI has continuously expanded to cater to the needs of the industry. It now serves as the preferred onshore support hub for oil and gas operators in Guyana, providing services ranging from vessel management, waste management, and warehousing solutions to construction and supply chain management.
With immediate water access and four berths, its main port consists of 30 acres of developed land, while its 140-acre industrial estate has been developed to suit a myriad of needs.
Today, the company boasts more than 710 employees, maintaining a minimum of 95 percent Guyanese workers and is a leading developer of local content here in Guyana.
Gomatie Gangadin, Public Relations Manager of GYSBI said, “We are indeed proud to be associated with the International Energy Conference and Expo as it provides the ideal platform, not only to educate and inform everyone of what’s taking place offshore Guyana and within the Oil and Gas Industry, but also the opportunity for local businesses like ourselves, to let industry leaders know how we are supporting these efforts, what services we offer and what areas are available for cooperation and collaboration.”
The Conference and Expo was hosted under the theme ‘Harnessing Energy for Development’ and is expected to assemble Heads of State and Government, policymakers, academics, industry professionals, government officials and global energy thought leaders.
So far, the International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana 2023 has been able to garner support from the Government of Guyana. The event has been able to attract over 30 sponsors and close to 200 exhibitors.
