“During my seven and a half years in Guyana and Suriname, I came to recognize the tremendous potential of both countries. With the recent discoveries of massive offshore oil and gas reserves, I am able to work with Horizon Engage’s clients to help them understand the political, economic, cultural and societal forces in play as energy investors propose, implement and expand their exploration and production efforts. The governments of both countries have set ambitious goals for national development and realize having mutually beneficial relationships with energy investors will lead to success. This is where Horizon Engage plays the crucial and vital role.”
