Introduction Today’s column continues my evaluation of the impact of the 2020 global crisis on Guyana’s “infant petroleum sector”.
Introduction Last week’s column wrapped-up my evaluation of Guyana’s first Report on Petroleum Production and Revenues (RPPR).
Introduction Last week’s column had addressed the seeming rationale behind the publication of Guyana’s first Report on Petroleum Production and Revenues (RPPR) by the Ministry of Finance on February 19, 2020.
Introduction On February 2 of this year, I concluded my year-long series of columns, which had commenced on January 27, 2019, on the topic: Guyana’s Petroleum Road Map.
Introduction As previously indicated, today’s column wraps-up my reflections on the national debates that have so far centered on the birth of Guyana’s infant petroleum industry.
Introduction In this week’s column, I continue to review the national debate on Guyana’s Government Take from its petroleum sector, focusing on issues of its measurement, based on an acceptable definition.
Introduction This week’s column treats with what still passes today as Guyana’s “national debate on its projected Government Take” or revenue share obtained from the export of barrels of crude oil equivalent (boe) based on its petroleum discoveries as detailed in last Sunday’s column.
Introduction This week I turn to consider the second and third of the three relations, identified last week, as informing the petroleum metrics/revenues of the Guyana Petroleum Road Map, and, relatedly, the Buxton Proposal.
Introduction Last week’s column concluded my presentation on the Buxton Proposal.
Introduction Today’s column wraps-up discussion on the “reasonings” or developmental rationale for the Buxton Proposal of “oil-for-cash” transfers to Guyanese households.
Introduction In today’s column I shall continue the effort to offer readers, as careful an assessment as I can of the “reasonings” (developmental rationale), underpinning the Buxton Proposal of “oil-for-cash” transfers to Guyanese households, as the final element of the Guyana’s Petroleum Road Map, as I have been describing it.
Introduction Starting today, I shall attempt to offer readers as careful an assessment as I can of the developmental rationale that lies behind the Buxton Proposal, as I formulate it.
Introduction This week’s column considers those processes that are required for making the Buxton Proposal operational.
Introduction Last week’s column introduced four attributes of the Buxton Proposal, which I am certain, if kept constantly to the fore-front of its consideration would allow a deeper understanding of it as a potentially transformational poverty policy intervention, reaching beyond a cash transfers to all households’ scheme (and thus race/ethnic neutral).
Introduction Thus far, I have observed that, from a purely pedagogic perspective, it has been very helpful for ease of explanation and hopefully, understanding, to introduce my presentation of the Buxton Proposal, beginning with a listing of four of its attributes before offering a formal comprehensive depiction or description of it.
Introduction At the start of 2019, I had set about the long task of portraying for this series of columns the systematic delineation of a strategic road map for both the “getting and spending” of Guyana’s expected Government Take, arising from its fast-emerging oil and gas sector.
Introduction Today’s column concludes the discussion on my Road Map recommendation that “sustained Government of Guyana (GoG) investment in renewable energy becomes a declared priority for optimising the use of its expected petroleum wealth.
Introduction Last week’s column highlighted the two Government of Guyana’s (GoG) foundational spending recommendations that I make, based on Guyana’s projected petroleum revenues.
Introduction Today’s column wraps-up my discussion of Guidepost 4, in Part 2 of Guyana’s Petroleum Road Map.
Introduction Today’s column continues the discussion of establishing a domestic oil refinery (or refineries), whether private or state-owned, to process Guyana’s crude slate.
