In addition, there are 27 CARICOM owned companies, 15 of which are registered in Guyana that are also engaged by ExxonMobil. Another 42 foreign-owned companies, 20 of which are registered in this country do business with ExxonMobil Guyana, DPI reported.
The Government of Guyana, last Friday, released to the Natural Resources Committee of the National Assembly, the list of 227 local companies which ExxonMobil has been doing business with for the first quarter of 2018.
This is in addition to some 309 Guyanese owned companies which ExxonMobil and its contractors engaged in 2017.
The vast majority of the companies which are benefitting most from ExxonMobil’s business comprise of Guyanese small businesses.
“It is clear that the trickledown effect is that thousands of Guyanese who are either employed or connected to these companies directly are benefitting from ExxonMobil’s presence in Guyana,” DPI noted.
ExxonMobil is required to submit to the government, on a quarterly basis, the list of companies it engages. ExxonMobil has been meeting its obligation to submit the quarterly lists to the government since the commencement of their operations in Guyana.
