Oil sector’s local content includes garbage disposal, professional services, Bourda market purchases

Just in case you did not know, local content from the oil and gas sector does not only include big, sophisticated and high-tech goods and services or high-paying jobs.

Trinidad and Tobago Geophysicist, Anthony Paul, who has been advising Guyana on developing its Local Content Policy, said as far back as 2011 that local content is “income received by locals, revenues accrued by owners of land and resources and income streams to local shareholders and creditors.”

From all accounts, many of the 227 companies, professionals, vendors at Bourda Market, waste disposal services and the media fit the bill when it comes to what is local content.

The list names, among the beneficiaries from ExxonMobil’s purchases here, Bourda Market, Cevon’s and Puran’s waste disposal services, Kaiteur News, Stabroek News, Oasis Cafe, Bounty and Mattai Supermarkets, Guyana Revenue Authority, Guyana Power and Light, a car wash service, as well as a number of lawyers, medical services, accountants, and insurance companies.

The Guyana government on Tuesday boasted a GY$10 billion trickle-down from the oil sector. “The vast majority of the companies which are benefitting most from ExxonMobil’s business comprise of Guyanese small businesses. It is clear that the trickle-down effect is that thousands of Guyanese who are either employed or connected to these companies directly are benefitting from ExxonMobil’s presence in Guyana,” government’s Department of Public Information said in a release.

Government said during the 1st quarter of 2018, ExxonMobil’s activities utilized 262 suppliers registered in Guyana, 227 of which are Guyanese-owned. Thirty-five are foreign-owned or CARICOM suppliers registered locally. Figures, government says, show that GY$2.8 billion have been spent with Guyanese suppliers from January to March this year.

Government said ExxonMobil’s impact is not limited to large corporations, but the majority of the suppliers listed are categorised as small businesses. For example, there are 15 catering/restaurant companies, two small bottled water providers, several machinists and four graphic design firms.

All of the daily newspapers are selling advertising space to ExxonMobil and its affiliates. “From medical services, trucking to security to real estate rentals the whole spectrum of the Guyanese private sector is becoming a vital part of an industry that will see the nation’s GDP double in the next few years,” government added

The Department of Public Information quoted ExxonMobil’s Senior Director, Public & Government Affairs, Kimberly Brasington as  saying  that, “We take building local content seriously and have demonstrated that through action and capacity building. We want Guyanese suppliers to be a part of the industry.  Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited, ExxonMobil’s affiliate in Guyana, and its contractors continue to expand local content efforts through supplier utilisation.”

In 2017, ExxonMobil Guyana and its contractors together utilised 348 Guyanese registered suppliers spending a total of $8 billion.  309 of those companies are Guyanese owned.

Among other things, a World Bank document on Local Content states that “where local content is defined as sales
from domestically owned and located companies, it will be necessary to first establish whether the companies in question qualify as “local” in terms of the policy directive.”

The World Bank further states that local content can refer to jobs or value-added that is created anywhere in the
domestic economy as a result of the actions of an oil and gas company, or it can more narrowly refer to jobs that are created in the neighborhood of the oil production plant. Although policies mainly refer to local content without
specifying its location within the economy, it is common that the communities closest to—and possibly most affected by—oil or gas installations will also exert the most pressure for jobs.

Local content, the bank states, may even refer to the provision, by the oil company, of infrastructure (schools, medical facilities) that is not an input into its own production but intended for the benefit of the local population (either of the nation generally or the neighborhood of the installations).
