Guyana oil boom?

FLAG POSTS IN THE GROUND: The Guyanese flag flies proudly

EXXONMOBIL AND Hess have announced plans for oil production off Guyana’s shores by 2020.

The announcement follows successful deepwater exploration for what is described as one of the richest South American oil and natural gas discoveries in decades.

Trinidad has offered to process the oil at its Pointe-a-Pierre refinery.
