Author: Inter-American Dialogue’s Latin American Energy Advisor
Subject: Latin America

Abstract: The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that the Guyana-Suriname Basin could contain more than 15 billion barrels of oil as well as gas reserves of 42 trillion cubic feet. Guyana has awarded concessions to several major international oil companies as it seeks to exploit that potential, but oil has not yet been struck. What is the outlook for Guyana's oil sector? Does the country have the right regulatory environment in place to attract investment? Will the country's longstanding border dispute with Venezuela or current political gridlock affect the sector's development?
