ExxonMobil yesterday told prospective suppliers that it is seeking local partners that will support its goals, including health and safety, environmental and regulatory compliance, quality, and cost competitiveness. 

This was the message delivered to participants at the inaugural Liza Phase 1 Supplier Development Forum, which was launched yesterday at the Marriott Hotel in Kingston, Georgetown, to facilitate direct communication between Guyanese suppliers and service providers and ExxonMobil’s prime contractors in order to open dialogue and build relationships through face-to-face engagements in order to maximise local content opportunities.

Speaking yesterday at the opening of the forum, ExxonMobil Country Manager Rod Henson said, “…So we will favour contractors and suppliers that are able to effectively support our objectives, which surround safety and health, environmental and regulatory compliance, quality, cost competitiveness, ethical business practices and an ability to meet schedule. These are the things that are important to us.”….
