Guyana Oil GDP increased by 45.9% in first half of 2020 – Marla Dukharan
The International Monetary Fund has cut its growth projection in half for new oil producer Guyana to 26% for 2020 – still the fastest in the world – and forecasts 8% growth in 2021 and 29% in 2022.
Caribbean Economist, Marla Dukharan, said in her November Caribbean Monthly Economic Report that Guyana’s oil GDP increased by 45.9% in H1 2020, while non-oil GDP contracted 4.9% y/y.
According to figures from the Bank of Guyana’s Half Year Report, the petroleum and gas, and support services industry expanded by 4,712.9 percent in H1 2020. The industry recorded crude oil production of 12,349,835 barrels, with an average output per day ranging between 65,000 and 75,000 barrels.
“However, this performance was 38-46 percent lower than the 120,000 barrels per day targeted during the review period,” the Bank of Guyana said. “The petroleum and gas industry was faced a sharp drop in oil prices from depressed demand and higher inventory of crude oil as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic’s adverse effect globally.”
Guyana is set to lift its fourth and final 1-million-barrel shipment of Liza Crude for 2020, next month.
