The Guyana Economic and Investment Summit will present investment strategy and opportunities across both oil & gas, and the broader spectrum of the Guyanese economy.


“ ”

With Guyana predicted to emerge as a top per capita producer of oil, high-impact exploration drilling activity increasing substantially, and oil & gas proving a primary investment opportunity, the country is set to be transformed over the course of the next decade.

 The Guyana Economic and Investment Summit will present investment strategy and opportunities across both oil & gas, and the broader spectrum of the Guyanese economy.

With estimated recoverable reserves of more than 13 billion barrels of oil and 32 trillion cubic feet of gas, investment opportunities in Guyana are plentiful. Bringing together government, investors, E&P companies and service providers, the summit will explore these opportunities alongside wider possibilities for Guyana’s developing economy, including agriculture, infrastructure and tourism.
