Following public outcry Govt releases 2018 list of local suppliers used by ExxonMobil

0

…says ‘$2.8B spent with Guyanese suppliers from January to March of this year’

With leader of the Opposition Dr Bharrat Jagdeo being the most recent person to make calls for Government to release the names of the local companies that oil giant ExxonMobil has utilised the services of, the Department of Public Information (DPI) in a release on Tuesday has done same.

Opposition leader Dr Bharrat Jagdeo
ExxonMobil was quoted in the media as saying that it utilised the services of 309 local suppliers last year. Moreover, for 2018 the oil giant said that it also utilized approximately 227 local suppliers.
However, Government has, so far, only released the list of local suppliers for 2018.
Among other things, ExxonMobil had said that it “submits the list of companies to the government on a quarterly basis,” while outlining that the “government can verify the list and or attest to the public that we do in fact submit the data to the government. Or the government can choose to disclose the list.”
While stakeholders were optimistic that the oil giant was utilizing hundreds of local businesses, many had called for the names of the over 300 companies to be divulged.
According to Jagdeo in a release on Monday evening, “the non-disclosure of the names of local companies engaged by ExxonMobil has been the latest issue on which Minister Raphael Trotman has been called out on, despite calls by myself and other members of civil society for this to be done, months ago.   Guyanese would recall that, last month, when asked about his failure to make the disclosure, Minister Trotman was flippant in saying that he ‘did not know why Exxon had not released the names’ of the local companies it engaged.”
Moreover, Jagdeo had said that “there is nothing stopping his release of the names of the local companies.  I wish to repeat my call for the list of 309 local companies used by ExxonMobil in 2017 and the 227 used during the first quarter of 2018 to be released.”
The Opposition Leader even said that he found it “surprising that ExxonMobil has been relaying information to the Coalition Government, on a quarterly basis, given the reticence of this Administration when it comes to keeping the Guyanese public informed of the developments in the oil and gas sector.”
The Natural Resources Minister has since refuted the claims made by Jagdeo that the government is operating in secrecy.

Addressing the quarterly reports provided to the government by ExxonMobil, the DPI release said that the oil giant has pumped over GYD $10 billion into the local economy for 2017 and the first quarter of 2018.

According to the DPI, in the 1st quarter of 2018, ExxonMobil’s activities utilized 262 suppliers registered in Guyana, 227 of which are Guyanese-owned.

Thirty-five are foreign-owned or CARICOM (Caribbean Community) suppliers registered locally.

Caterers, IT specialists, machinists and graphic designers are among the 227 locally owned companies benefiting from the activities of ExxonMobil in Guyana in 2018.

In 2017, according to information from the DPI, ExxonMobil Guyana and its contractors together utilised 348 Guyanese registered suppliers, spending a total of $8 billion. 309 of those companies are said to be Guyanese owned.

It was also outlined that “A massive GY$2.8BILLION has been spent with Guyanese suppliers from January to March this year.”

“And the Exxon Impact is not limited to large corporations. In fact, the majority of the suppliers listed are categorised as small businesses. For example, there are 15 catering/restaurant companies, two small bottled water providers, several machinists and four graphic design firms” said the DPI release.

ExxonMobil’s Senior Director, Public and Government Affairs, Kimberly Brasington had said last week that “We take building local content seriously and have demonstrated that through action and capacity building. We want Guyanese suppliers to be a part of the industry. Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited, ExxonMobil’s affiliate in Guyana, and its contractors continue to expand local content efforts through supplier utilisation.”
