Guyana’s government may pipe associated gas from its vast offshore finds to feed a new gas-to-power plant, an adviser to the country’s president has told Interfax Natural Gas Daily

“If these initial flows reach shore [via a pipeline], they could feed a 200 MW power plant,” Jan Mangal, the recently appointed petroleum adviser to Guyanese President David Granger, said in an interview with Interfax Natural Gas Daily. “This is roughly similar to the current installed capacity in Guyana,” he added. 

“The preliminary numbers are rather small, about 850,000 cubic metres per day to 1.4 million cubic metres per day through an 8-12 inch pipeline,” said Mangal. However, he stressed that discussions over gas-to-shore plans were preliminary and no decisions had been taken.
