Supplier development

Local suppliers are strategically important to the success of our operations. We are committed to working with them, and other stakeholders, to develop local companies and a competitive industrial base.

ExxonMobil Guyana has established the Centre for Local Business Development. The Centre provides a space for local firms to learn about opportunities in the oil and gas sector, strengthen their competitiveness, and prepare to supply the oil and gas sector with various services. They maintain a database which is used to identify possible suppliers, contractors and subcontractors who could potentially participate in the project.

ExxonMobil Guyana will favor suppliers and contractors that are able to effectively support the following project objectives, in order of priority

  • Safety and health: Provide for the safety and health of all personnel involved in the Project and the safe operation of the completed facilities to achieve zero lost-time incidents.
  • Environmental and regulatory compliance: Conduct all activities and operations in full compliance with applicable laws, rules, regulations and guidelines.
  • Quality: Ensure that quality during design, engineering, fabrication and construction is consistent with best international petroleum industry practices and applicable standards.
