Guyana: ‘First Oil’ brings new hope to Guyana

GUYANESE can expect development in areas across the board with the beginning of oil production, and can rest assured that the government will continue to do all in its power to manage the coming resources prudently so that all will benefit equally.

Speaking with the Guyana Chronicle on Sunday, Vice-President and Minister of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs, Sydney Allicock, said that although it was always more than a hunch that Guyana had oil, finally becoming a petroleum producer is “a dream come true.”

On Friday evening, President David Granger announced ‘first’ oil, simultaneously declaring December 20 as ‘National Petroleum Day’ in a televised national address.

“It was always there, but now that it is here I think it will be a blessing for us all here in Guyana, as long as we manage it properly,” Minister Allicock said.
