ExxonMobil contract to be made public in December – Harmon

The contract between the Guyana Government and ExxonMobil subsidiary EEGPL will be made public in December, according to Minister of State Joseph Harmon.

He made the disclosure at a post-Cabinet press conference today in response to a question from Stabroek News.

He said that Cabinet has had a full discussion on the matter.

The government has been harried and criticised over its non-release of the contract. Questions have been raised about why a new agreement was signed between the APNU+AFC government and ExxonMobil and whether it entailed payment of a signing bonus.
