Exxon Mobil paying Guyana legal fees in Venezuela border claims

this is of interest to me and should be to you all. this from a far left leaning venezuelan publication. they all on the same page when it comes to their spurious claims to essequibo

“Our national sovereignty is riding on this issue and it will be remiss of us if we are not prepared and all resources are not put in place.

This is not the first time we are going this route as it was done with the CGX Energy and Suriname after the June 2000 incident with the Surinamese coastguard. The PPP [People’s Progressive Party] was then in office. This is nothing new. This is not a signing bonus, but rather we are garnering the resources to prepare for the case. This is a sovereignty issue,” the officials said.

Exxon Asks: Is Guyana A 10 Billion Barrel Play?

During Exxon’s Q2 conference call management commented;

“This development is expected to cost $4.4 billion, resulting in a unit development cost of less than $10 per barrel and a projected double-digit return, even in a flat $40 per barrel price environment.

To pacify the local black gold dreamers Exxon Mobil ran an add and I immediately fell out laughing. 

Whitey yuh too too cruel.

ExxonMobil is seeking contractors for support services for helicopter operations, maintenance and ground services. Also being sought are support services for platform supply vessels, multi-purpose intervention vessel and tanker assist tugs.

It is also seeking freight forwarding services such as packing, transport, clearance and expediting of materials to and from major international locations, Guyana and Trinidad. ExxonMobil is also seeking to rent or purchase offshore cargo baskets and containers. It is also in the market for the provision and inspection of lifting rigging and slings.

Exxon is covering its ass and you can never accuse it of not advertising locally 🙂

The advert further goes on to say, companies can be registered in guyana or any caricom country. Well is hey de laff get moe outta control.

There are two caricom countries with extensive oil & gas experience. One to the east and the other north north west and is business dem white people come fuh run not build your non existent local capacity.

I know of a local airline rep who received the stack of papers from Exxon to see if they might be able to offer Exxon something aviation side.

A new breed of local entrepreneurs will emerge to mop up the tears of the negroe oil dreamers.

Look like nightmares are about to dominate the dreamscape in this sequel. 
dream architecture in turmoil
fear anxiety sadness despair distress

Oneirology is a field rich for exploitation with numerous possibilities and permutations in this here Guyana.

look further down the horizon
beyond the rigs
open seas & blue skies
balance your competing interests
return to equilibrum or discover it

dear Guyana, Even the mighty ExxonMobil has been hobbled by cheap oil.

stop dreaming of that oil and get busy. any nation depending on extractive industries to rescue it is doomed from the start

CNN Money: Profits at the largest U.S. oil company crashed by 59% during the second quarter to just $1.7 billion. That may sound like a lot, but it’s actually the tiniest bottom line for Exxon (XOM) since 1999, just before the company merged with Mobil.

The scale of Exxon’s latest profit slump caught Wall Street off guard. Analysts had predicted the oil company’s profits bottomed out in the first quarter, when profits also hit a 17-year low. Continue reading “dear Guyana, Even the mighty ExxonMobil has been hobbled by cheap oil.”
