The Regional Democratic Council (RDC) of Region Two (Pomeroon/Supenaam) is appealing to Government to be facilitated an urgent meeting to address a number of issues which have become a burden to the region.Region Two ChairmanDevanand RamdattFrustrated Regional Chairman Devanand Ramdatt has claimed to have written a number of letters to Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson several weeks ago in an attempt to address numerous urgent matters within the region, and on Monday, Ramdatt disclosed that none of his letters has received a response.According to a letter sent to the minister, a copy of which was received by this newspaper, Chairman Ramdatt requested a completion date for the Onderneeming Sand Pit Road, repairs to which commenced since last year and are still incomplete. This letter also sought insight on several other projects which were promised, such as the sea defence project to address the rapid erosion between Zorg and Johanna, and the installation of new generators at the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) station in Anna Regina to prevent the far-too-frequent power failures which continue to affect the entire region, especially the business community.Plans to strengthen the river and sea defences in Region Two were announced by Government in April of last year, while the Region was reportedly promised more generators to tackle the issue of power outages.Chairman Ramdatt has also complained that the Region Two Administration has not yet been made aware of the villages which will receive street lights, nor has a date for the commencement of installation works been communicated, although the Infrastructure Ministry (MoPI) had announced plans to install the much needed street lights since last month.Additionally, residents are asking for the only public airstrip in the region, located in Mainstay, to be given priority treatment in 2019, and that the ferry service which links the region to other parts of the country be reviewed.Residents of Onderneeming Sand Pit, Essequibo Coast have recently voiced their concerns over the poor quality work done on the community’s main access road. According to residents, part of the road, completed only a few months ago, has already begun to show deterioration of the surface, and there are potholes appearing. Residents, especially vehicle owners, are questioning the quality of work done, and the poor design.Guyana Times was told that the access road is the gateway to the backlands, and on a daily basis is being used by heavy-duty vehicles transporting logs, sand, and other materials.This publication understands that, owing to heavy rainfall, works on the road were put on hold, to be continued as early as weather conditions permit. The contract was awarded through Central Government by the Public Infrastructure Ministry.The Department of Public Information (DPI) had reported since last October that plans were underway for the rehabilitation of the Mainstay airstrip, but no work has commenced there.
Enmore Estate closureBy Shemuel FanfairAt year end, 2300 factory, field and cane workers currently employed at the East Demerara Estate (Enmore), along with their family members, will face an uncertain future with the impending closure of the entity.During the course of last week, Guyana Times met with some workers and villagers of Enmore, on the East Coast of Demerara, who expressed emotions of despair and sadness over the December 31, 2017 deadline for the shutting down of the long-standing factory which was in recent times, merged with the La Bonne Intention Estate to form one combined entity.Guyana Times reported in May that ever since the closure was announced, business in the area and vendors at the market were already feeling the squeeze, as community members reduced their spending as they were becoming more cautious with their budget. According to information received, the situation today is the same as persons in the area indicated that the Friday market which was once vibrant, is now fading into the “ghost town” as many had predicted ahead of the shutdown of the Wales Estate.Field worker Mohamed Suliman, 45, has worked with the Enmore Estate for some 22 years. He took care of his family, raised his daughter and developed himself from the earnings he acquired as a sugar worker. Suliman does not see many positives for the community of Enmore after the estate is closed.This newspaper caught up with him on one of his usual evening strolls near the popular market square. He highlighted that Enmore is heading down a similar path as Wales.“Enmore will turn the same, as a ghost town like Wales because most people actually depend on the sugar estate. Like how now is grinding, you get Friday market but like that dead cause people not working for enough money,” he noted.Speaking on how he sees his own future, Suliman stressed that he could have only waited on discussions with management to inform workers on who will remain employed with the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) and the others who would be retrenched. Suliman indicated that he’s not quite sure what course of action he will take regarding his future, but what he does know is that wide categories of workers and their families would be affected. The Sugar Corporation explained on Friday that some 1500 persons attached to the East Demerara Estate will be made redundant by end of the crop season.As reported, there are many ECD communities that depend in some way or the other on the Enmore Estate. Workers come from villages such as Victoria, Bachelor’s Adventure, Golden Grove, Enterprise and Haslington. Suliman stressed that with the estate in existence, workers and business persons are more certain of their existence.“When the sugar estate grinding, people can do more business, a lot of groceries will sell,” he highlighted.After interviewing the field worker, this publication met with other residents before finally ending up at a sports betting establishment, where many young and older men often find themselves. The general consensus there was that Enmore will be gravely affected by the closure.Factory worker with 15 years of service, Terry Gobin said there are no jobs for young people, further highlighting that the closure will only add to the strain in the community which, according to him, has seen an uptick in criminal activity. He reasoned that with all the closures of sugar estates, Government should probably embark on a programme of distributing some of the earnings from the incoming oil industry.Other men in the betting shop told this newspaper that alternative job opportunities should be provided for those who will lose their jobs. Guyana Times understands that the East Demerara Estate has more than 200 workers in the factory alone. Sitting at the shop was an electrician, Yograj Singh, who has been plying his trade for the past four years. Assessing the impending closure, from a young man’s perspective, he said many young men are finding difficulty finding employment.“It gan be tough for them cause jobs right now slow; Enmore heading to the burial ground,” Singh remarked; a comment echoed by some fellow residents.Others expressed that the economic impact from the closure could even affect marriages as in some cases, both parties are employed with GuySuCo.
Guyana moves one step closer toward oil production with the arrival of another drillship, the Stena Forth, which is expected to commence exploration offshore at the Orinduik Block.Earlier this month, oil and gas exploration company, Tullow Oil, had announced the commencement of its search for oil at the Orinduik Block.The Stena Forth drillshipThis operation was possible with the use of the Offshore Support Vessel (OSV) Pacific Leader. As such, the Maritime Department had alerted nearby vessels that the ship would be emitting international signals.This drilling exercise will run until December 31 of this year and the oil company is expected to drill about 82 nautical miles from the coast of Guyana and cover an area of 848 square kilometres.In another notice, the department explained that the company also commenced drilling in the Jethro-1 well site within the Orinduik Block. For this operation, the Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit, the newly arrived Stena Forth was sourced.Its drill site is about 95 nautical miles from Guyana’s coast and will cover an area of one square kilometre, bounded by other coordinates. The oil company first inked its interest into Guyana during the second quarter of 2013.In February 2019, Tullow had announced that it was bringing forward its drilling programme from the previously scheduled end of the year to the second quarter. It had announced that the Jethro prospect would be drilled in June. So far, plans have been announced to drill three wells here, namely the Jethro-Lobe, Joe and Carapa.Tullow’s partner in the Orinduik Block, Eco Atlantic, had announced that drilling on the Joe prospect will begin in mid-July of this year. They had announced that the Stena Forth drillship will move directly to the Joe after it finishes drilling the Jethro-Lobe well in the Orinduik Block. It is understood that the Joe is located in approximately 650 metres of water and will cost Eco Atlantic approximately US$3 million to drill. A recently published report from international company Gustavson Associates had estimated that the well has a 43.2 per cent chance of success.Tullow’s Head of Communications George Cazenove told the Guyana Times that jobs will be provided for the Guyanese populace.“Shared prosperity includes a firm commitment to local content… Tullow has made significant efforts in both East and West Africa to make sure that local companies, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises, are involved in the supply chain in the oil and gas developments we are involved with,” he was quoted as saying.Meanwhile, oil-giant Exxon Mobil has deployed four drillships for exploration purposes, where 13 massive discoveries were made. The fleet comprises the Stena Carron—which is working at the Longtail 1 discovery, the Noble Bob Douglas at the Liza Phase 1, the Noble Tom Madden at the Yellowtail Well, and Noble Don Taylor.ExxonMobil said there is potential for at least five Floating Productions, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels on the Stabroek Block, producing more than 750,000 barrels of oil per day by 2025.The start-up of the Liza Phase 1 development is on track to begin by the first quarter of 2020 and will produce up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day utilising the Liza Destiny FPSO, which is expected to arrive in the country in the third quarter.Liza Phase 2 is expected to start up by mid-2022. A final investment decision is expected soon, subject to Government and regulatory approvals. Upon approval, the project plans to use the Liza Unity FPSO to produce up to 220,000 barrels per day. Sanctioning of a third development, Payara, is also expected in 2019, with start-up projected for 2023.The Stabroek Block is 6.6 million acres (26,800 square kilometres). ExxonMobil affiliate, Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited, is operator and holds 45 per cent interest in the Stabroek Block. Hess Guyana Exploration Limited holds 30 per cent interest and CNOOC Petroleum Guyana Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, holds 25 per cent interest.
A 20-year-old County Donegal man who downed a bottle of whiskey to drown his sorrows after a break-up with his girlfriend verbally abused a female Garda who went to help him, a court has heard.Charles Meehan, 20, Carrickballydoey, Manorcunningham, had been lying on a road in Oldtown Letterkenny on June 7th this year when passersby called the emergency services.Gda Leanne Harraghy attended the scene, as did an ambulance crew. Inspector David Kelly said Garda Harraghy had asked Meehan to sit down on a wall until an ambulance arrived.However Meehan told the garda he didn’t want to talk to her because she was a woman.“The defendant became extremely agitated and made a number of extremely abusive remarks to Garda Harraghy which were anti-women,” said Inspector Kelly.Meehan became violent, resisted arrest and other officers had to use pepper spray to restrain him.He had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the Garda station.Solicitor Lisa Finnegan said that Meehan had been drowning his sorrows.“He had been involved in a relationship and it had broken up and he bought a bottle of whiskey. He is not a regular drinker nor does he go out, but he drank it.“He has no recollection of what happened after that,” said the solicitor.She said her client had never been in trouble before and he had apologised to Garda Harraghy as soon as possible afterwards.Meehan, she said, would like to travel to Canada and was keen to avoid a conviction.Judge Paul Kelly told the court: It’s bad enough people abusing Gardai but these Gardai were actually on the way to the assistance of Mr Meehan after he was reported to be in an unconscious state – this is the thanks people get for assisting him.“The Garda was offensively abused on the basis of her gender. The drink involved doesn’t excuse it – nobody forced whiskey into you Mr Meehan. You are here as a result of your own actions.”Judge Kelly ordered Meehan to pay €250 to Donegal Youth Services and adjourned the case until July 22 to give him time to pay it.BROKEN-HEARTED MAN DRANK BOTTLE OF WHISKEY AND THEN ABUSED FEMALE GARDA was last modified: June 26th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BROKEN-HEARTED MAN DRANK BOTTLE OF WHISKEY AND THEN ABUSED FEMALE GARDA
