More oil producing wells discovered
near to the Orinduik Block where Tullow
has already declared massive finds
while pursuing a third.
As the country awaits an announcement
from the Spanish giant, authorities
in Guyana this week celebrated
twin commercial successes, one from
Exxon named Tripletail and a second
from Tullow referred to as Joe-1.
The find appears to confirm suggestions
from industry experts worldwide,
that the Guyana Basin, which also
include fellow Caribbean Community
neighor Suriname, is the hottest area
for exploration globally and could hold
reserves way in excess of the 16 billion
barrels that the US Geological Surveys
has long touted.
As national excitement lingers from
the two announcemets this week,
Exxon is preparing to possibly declare
yet another success at its Ranger 2 well
in the northern portion of the Stabroek
Block by the end of the month if not
sooner an official said this week.
All this is happening as engineers
using robotic machines are working
in earnest to hook up wells and other
undersea equipment with the Floating
Production Stroage and Offloading
vessel (FPSO) which will both store
and process oil for export to markets.
The Liza Destiny arrived in Guyana last
month from Singapore where it was
outfitted to work as a floating storage
facility for production and export.
Officials also said that extensive
safety tests are being conducted before
an announcement about when Guyana
will become the world’s newest oil
producer sometime in late November
or early December. Such a move could
coincide with general elections and
could be used by an incumbent government
to its advantage on the campaign
And yet a fourth company, Canadabased
CGX Energy Inc will soon begin
a drilling campaign in its Corentyne
Block near the border with Suriname.
Officials there are closely monitoring
the Guyana success rate. Suriname
produces oil from land wells but is yet
to find any offshore despite most of the
16 wells found so far in Guyana are very
close to its border.
“The Republic of Guyana continues
to be encouraged by the prolific rate
of discovery in our country. Every
Guyanese can be assured that the government
will continue to work conscientiously
to pursue the most effective
and efficient marketing strategies of
Guyana’s crude entitlement to transform
our economy and to implement
sustainable development programmes
from which all Guyanese can benefit,”
said Mark Bynoe, director of the
Department of Energy.
As the race to capitalize on Guyana
“sweet, light crude” heats up, Exxon is
preparing to bring in a fourth drill ship
into the basin to speed up exploration
of its massive concession. Officials say
this is an indication as to the extent
of suspected oil reserves. So far only a
tenth of its 6.6 million acres of its concession
have been explored.
The Uaru-1 well, about six miles east
of the Liza field is next on the agenda
of Exxon as the frenetic pace of exploration
continues, albeit by three separate
Meanwhile, a high level team from
the firm’s Houston headquarters, led
by Vice-President, Liza Walters is due
in Guyana next week for talks with
officials. Trips to the FPSO are also

Tri-caucus leaders file amicus briefs
The briefs advise the court of relevant,
additional information or arguments
that the court might wish to
consider. A well-written amicus brief
can have a significant impact on judicial
The briefs were filed last Thursday
for the cases La Clínica de la Raza et
al. v. Trump et al. (Northern District
of California); State of California et al.
v. Department of Homeland Security
et al. (Northern District of California);
State of New York et al. v. Department
of Homeland Security et al. (Southern
District of New York); and Make the
Road New York et al. v. Cuccinelli et al.
(Southern District of New York).
The amicus briefs argue that the public
charge rule was “written with discriminatory
intent against non-white,
non-European immigrants and violates
both the Equal Protection Clause and
the Administrative Procedure Act.”
The brief cites as evidence statements
by President Donald J. Trump
and high-ranking officials in his
administration and data showing the
“disproportionately harmful impact”
on Latino, Asian Pacific Islander and
Black immigrants, including Caribbean
nationals, the public charge rule
would have, if it goes into effect.
The public charge rule would expand
the definition of who is considered
a “public charge” and consequently
make it more difficult for Caribbean
and other immigrants to come to the
United States or receive green cards
if they are likely to use benefits they
are legally entitled to, such as Medicaid,
housing assistance and nutrition
The rule will go into effect on Oct.
15, 2019, unless a preliminary injunction
The amicus briefs were led by Tri-
Caucus leaders, including CAPAC
Chair, Judy Chu, CHC Whip, Adriano
Espaillat; CBC Immigration Task Force
Chair, Yvette D. Clarke, the daughter
of Jamaican immigrants; CHC Chair,
Joaquin Castro; CBC Chair, Karen Bass;
CAPAC Immigration Task Force Chair,
Pramila Jayapal; and CAPAC Healthcare
Task Force Chair, Barbara Lee.
