Border Dispute


Guyana: one more time

BORDER DISPUTE Early this year, the government of Guyana granted a new concession for oil prospecting in Orinduik block to an oil consortium composed of British company Tullow and Canadian Eco Atlantic. Tullow is already engaged in prospecting in contiguous Kanuky block, along with Spanish oil company Repsol. The Orinduik block is to the west of the newly-found and successful Liza oil field, located in Stabroek block and owned by oil giant ExxonMobil in partnership with Chinese National Offshore Oil Corporation. The vast concession granted in the Stabroek block covers areas that definitely belong to Guyana, as well as areas of the exclusive economic area the Venezuelan State established and disputed areas of the Essequibo region. ExxonMobil started prospecting in the Liza oil field, located in waters that are clearly Guyanese. However, the company has started to conduct oil prospecting in Essequibo waters. The smallest concession, in Orinduik, comprises Guyanese areas, but also areas that are included in the area disputed with Venezuela.
