Report summary

Guyana has a relatively simple form of Production Sharing Contract (PSC) fiscal regime.  Cost recovery ceilings and profit oil splits are fixed.  Royalty and corporate income tax are paid on the contractors behalf by the government.  No bonuses, rentals or fees are payable.   The barrel = lifetime revenue / field reserves. Profit = revenue – costs from barrel charts.  For further details see New Investment: Methodology. Source: Wood Mackenzie
