The new President of Exxon Mobil Guyana, Alistair Routledge has started his work in the country, replacing Rod Henson who is now serving as Vice President for Exxon in Houston Texas.
The new company President in a statement today said the company has accomplished a lot since its first discovery in Guyana five years ago and it is looking forward to the long term partnership in the country.
“I look forward to joining this amazing team of professionals, learning more about Guyana and getting to know the Guyanese people, who are an integral part of our operations,” said Routledge. “So much has been accomplished since the first oil discovery offshore in 2015 and we look forward to many great achievements to come as ExxonMobil is committed to a long term partnership here”, he added.
Routledge joins the Guyana operations from Qatar where he served as the President of the company there in charge of all ExxonMobil activities in that oil-rich nation.
In a statement, ExxonMobil Guyana said its new President began his career with Mobil in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1990 and has since undertaken a range of individual, supervisory and managerial assignments for Mobil and eventually ExxonMobil.
He has served in various capacities in engineering, operations, planning and commercial functions while working in the United Kingdom, the United States, Venezuela, Italy and Qatar.
Exxon has been continuing its oil production in Guyana though some of the operations have been dampened because of the coronavirus pandemic. Oil production in Guyana officially started back in December following several discoveries in the past five years.
