The extraction of oil and gas offshore poses multiple threats to the environment. The construction, operation and maintenance of a gas pipeline also poses significant challenges.For several years, Guyana has conducted a delicate balancing act between its role as an oil
producer and its role as a sometime pioneer of Low Carbon Development and now a purveyor of carbon credits.Maintaining equilibrium between these roles is a challenge, even for vastly more experienced O&G producers. Equilibrium hinges on many factors: a robust legal framework (to protect the environment); a network of regulatory institutions (to implement the laws and monitor operations); transparent and rigorous systems of appraisal; a wealth of data in the public domain; widespread public awareness of and trust in all of the foregoing.

This panel will include Dr Vincent Adams, Frances Carryl (Legal Officer, Environment Protection Agency) and Melinda Janki. Join them as they consider some of these factors.

Moray House Trust has worked for a decade to promote culture and public discourse in Guyana. It was founded on the belief that a culture thrives and develops where ideas circulate and are robustly debated and interrogated.
