EXXONMOBIL Guyana is participating in a series of engagements across the coastal regions of Guyana, to gather comments and questions that will determine the scope of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the gas-to-energy project.
The proposed project would bring associated gas from ExxonMobil Guyana–operated projects offshore, Liza Phases 1 and 2, to onshore gas processing facilities through a pipeline which would transport up to 50 million standard cubic feet of natural gas to the facilities, per day.
According to a statement from ExxonMobil Guyana, the first set of scoping meetings were held on July 6, 2021, at the Latchmansingh Primary School, Region Five (Mahaica–Berbice) and on July 7, 2021, at the Number 66 Fishport Complex and the St. Francis Japanese Hall, Port Mourant, Corentyne, Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice–Corentyne).

ExxonMobil Guyana has since applied for Environmental Authorisation from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its activities, which include an offshore and onshore pipeline, a potential module offloading facility and gas processing facilities.
The statement noted that an independent EIA will also be conducted to assess the potential direct and indirect impacts of the project.
“The EIA process will evaluate potential environmental and socioeconomic impacts, propose strategies to manage or mitigate impacts, identify project benefits, and provide the factual and technical basis to make an informed decision on our application for environmental authorisation,” ExxonMobil Guyana’s Environmental and Regulatory Manager, Michael Persaud, was quoted as saying in a statement issued on Tuesday.
“Our fundamental goal everywhere we operate is to reduce environmental incidents to zero through a process of continuous improvement and the delivery of superior environmental performance,” Persaud said.
