GAC has established GAC Logistics and Shipping (Guyana), which will provide support for oil and gas clients in the Atlantic region of South America.
Following the discovery of large reserves of oil and gas offshore Guyana, the country looks set to emerge as a key player in the energy sector, said GAC. Through GAC Logistics and Shipping (Guyana), the company hopes to tap into the increasing demand for the associated shipping and logistics services.
The company will serve oil and gas clients through the country’s main port in Georgetown. Richard Mallen, who has nearly four decades of experience in the shipping and logistics supply chain, will lead the new entity.
According to GAC, the operations in Guyana will work closely with its already established presence in Trinidad and Tobago, which is headed up by Gobind Kukreja.
To provide local expertise, GAC has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Guyana National Shipping Corporation (GNSC) – a company with more than 40 years of experience in the global and regional maritime industry.
