BOOK: GUYANA: Oil Dorado: Guyana’s Black Gold – by John Mair (Author)

Oil Dorado: Guyana’s Black Gold — Paperback – January 24, 2022

This book is a third and much expanded edition of the version published in March 2019. These books are always acorns that become oak trees through team enterprise. The original book was John Mair’s idea just five weeks before publication. It derived from an interview session he and Sally Gibson conducted with Dr Mark Bynoe, of the Guyana Department of Energy, in January 2019 by Skype from Georgetown to London. Thanks to him and to the then-high commissioner, Hamley Case, for facilitating that event.

The idea became reality through the authors who have written and delivered to a very tight deadline for no fee. Sometimes thrice. We are eternally grateful to them.            Continue reading

Even so, Nord Stream has pushed ahead and is now fully-operational and ready-to-go. Once German regulators provide the final certification, the gas deliveries will begin. German homeowners and businesses will have a reliable source of clean and inexpensive energy while Russia will see a significant boost to their gas revenues. It’s a win-win situation for both parties.        Continue reading
