120 miles off the coast of Guyana lies one of the biggest fossil fuel discoveries of our time: 13.6 billion barrels of oil and 32 trillion cubic feet of natural gas are the current estimate for known reserves in the entire offshore basin. ExxonMobil is the leading fossil fuel company in this massive drilling program, which has benefitted from Guyana receiving considerable budget support and technical assistance from the World Bank. Together, the two, along with a dozen other companies, risk turning Guyana into the world’s latest victim of the oil curse, further fueling the global climate crisis.
