Petroleum Commission logo unveiled

The official logo for the planned Petroleum Commission was revealed yesterday by the Ministry of Natural Resources and is a composite of a number of designs in a competition that was won by Essequibo Coast youth, Noel Sukhai.

The winners were rewarded at a ceremony at the National Library Con-ference room, GINA said.

GINA said that the competition was opened on December 14, 2016 and closed on December 27, 2016. It was open to persons between the ages of 15 and 25. It attracted 38 youths from across Guyana with entries coming from as far as Kwakwani in Region 10. Minister of Natural Resources Raphael Trotman said that they were carefully evaluated  against  the  criteria  set  out  in  the  guidelines  before  the  three  finalists   were chosen.

Trotman congratulated the three winners stating, “they can say they have contributed in the early days of oil and gas industry development in Guyana.”

Sukhai of the Essequibo Coast secured the first place followed by Andre Jacobus, and Albert Narine in third position. The latter two are from Georgetown.

There was also a Facebook segment of the competition. Voting opened on January 4, 2017 and closed on January 8, 2017. Sandeep Mangal’s logo emerged the winner with 602 votes.

Trotman said that in the final logo, “We do not claim originality because it is an amalgam of various ideas and designs. What we do claim however, is inclusivity.”  The final logo is a fusion of ideas he noted, while explaining that it shows the resplendent colours of the flag of Guyana.

GINA said that the  Ministry  is  currently  planning  an  outreach  programme  across  the  country on all matters of interest and importance within the Natural Resources sector.
