GIPEX 2021- Guyana’s Largest Official Oil & Gas Summit Goes Virtual in June

With its inception in 2018, GIPEX has emerged as one of the most recognized and future-oriented Oil & Gas event in the Caribbean Region. Over these years, GIPEX continues to attract and assemble the entire oil and gas value-chain and offers them an ideal platform to connect and collaborate with peers, exchange new ideas and explore promising business avenues in Guyana’s burgeoning hydrocarbons market.

Attendees and participants ranging from influential ministries to oil and gas supermajors, thought leaders, key investors and regional businesses every year has resulted in making GIPEX in attaining an unparallel prominence as a ‘Must Go Event’ in the global Oil & Gas industry. The event is now synonymous with a brand build upon promoting consistent and high-quality networking and impeccable business matchmaking.

The boom in Guyana’s Oil & Gas industry has put the coastal country on the accelerated path of economic and infrastructural development. Despite the deep dents caused by last year’s pandemic, the International Monetary Fund has an upbeat projection of 8% growth in GDP mostly attributed by Guyanese energy industry. So far, Guyana has drilled 20 exploration wells, announced 18 commercial discoveries and found over 9 billion barrels of recoverable light crude oil, thereby rocketing the tiny Caribbean nation on the global Oil & Gas map. This year exploration has been planned for 16 more wells, which will further enhance the potential of Guyana as one of the best investment destinations on the planet.

GIPEX 2019 edition proved to be a runaway success based on overwhelming responses received from a number of international blue-chip companies and heavyweights of the field. Our 2019 edition included ExxonMobil, Baker Hughes, Hess Corporation, Total, Repsol, CNOOC and others in the role of our esteemed sponsors.
