The American Petroleum Institute (API) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS) to increase collaboration on safety guidelines and requirements for the country’s growing energy industry.
“We are pleased to partner with GNBS to advance safe and sustainable energy development in Guyana,” senior vice president of API’s global industry services Debra Phillips said.
“This agreement brings proven API standards to Guyana at the inception of its energy resources development, prioritising safety, sustainability and environmental protection at this critical moment.”
The MoU expands the ability of American and Guyanese energy experts to collaborate on future projects.
Ongoing joint meetings and workshops with GNBS will be used to adopt and promote API’s best-in-class standards, protocols, guidelines and recommended practices to enhance safety and environmental practices in Guyana.
“We see our role in this promising industry as critical in ensuring its success, and we look forward to partnering with the American Petroleum Institute to standardise practices and procedures through the adoption of API Standards and other guidelines,” deputy director of GNBS Ramrattie Karan said.
