GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Friday November 1, 2019 – Against the call for Guyanese to position themselves to benefit from the budding oil and gas sector, Action Invest Caribbean Incorporated has partnered with NSB Energy and Omega Project Solutions to form NSBomega Guyana Incorporated to do just that.
Headed by Managing Director Vishnu Doerga, the company provides a platform where individuals can be trained for technical positions in the industry and offer their services.
Talks between Action Invest Caribbean Incorporated and NSB Energy and Omega Project Solutions commenced two years ago.
“We were approached by a large multinational company which engages in technical staffing and what they do is provide engineers, surveyors and other technical staff for the industry which allows for safe and productive operations,” Doerga explained.
He contended that “there is no local content without the development of local capacity” and emphasized the importance of being prepared for the benefits that are will accrue from the petroleum industry.
President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of NSB Energy/NSB Omega, Michael Critch, said the agreement with Action Investment Caribbean was made after a decision was taken to undertake a different approach in the Guyana operations.
“We wanted to give back to the community and find a partner in the country that was capable of delivering our service first and top in class,” he said, adding that the company wanted to expand its brand but “not necessarily take from country”.
“We had to seek out a business or person that was capable of delivering our service to our standard – one that we could train and then leave the business with them.”
NSB Omega Guyana is Guyanese owned and majority controlled.
