‘GOES Guyana’ moves forward with Waste Treatment, Recycling & Reuse facility
Global Oil Environmental Services (GOES) Guyana, a joint venture partnership between JaParts Guyana and Global Oil Management Group, is forging ahead with the development of a Waste Treatment facility that will focus on the recycling and reuse of oil and gas waste.
The facility will be situated at Coverden, East Bank Demerara, and is expected to employ and train 20-30 local citizens when operational.
GOES, in a press release on Friday, stated that the focus of the facility will be the “responsible and safe recycling and reuse” of hydrocarbons in exploration & production waste streams.
It said that the process to separate and reuse these typical waste types decreases the utilization of disposal facilities, such as landfills and also affords the major production companies with responsible and effective solutions to their waste treatment needs.
“With the addition of several drilling rigs in 2021 and 2022, Guyana will require most supporting businesses to manage the growth of the sector and reduce risk to population and environment moving forward,” the company said.
In developing this service in-country, GOES said its operation in Guyana will also allow for a “greater local content initiative push” by keeping more services locally, diminishing the need to utilize similar services in neighbouring countries like Surname and Trinidad & Tobago.
GOES also noted that there are plans to add dock facility services in the short term.
