Suriname Virtual Conference

Cross-Border Coordination in Spill Prevention and Response in Guyana-Suriname Basin (GSB) is an opportunity for key stakeholders to mutually examine critical areas of enhancing capacity for spill prevention and response to loss of subsea source control. The conference has three key objectives. The first is to promote an enhanced awareness of the responsible actions that Industry takes to prevent a major incident; the second is to provide an overview of what subsea response looks like, its dependency on coordinated processes and strategies and highlight the resources available to industry; and the third is to develop practical recommendations to Governments to create a regional framework for consistent protocols and response methodology.

This conference aligns with the announced goals of the two new administrations in Suriname and Guyana. The Presidents of both governments have pledged to work more closely with one another, particularly in light of recent hydrocarbon successes. This conference is a key tool to bolster that objective.
