The Association of International Petroleum Negotiators (AIPN), which has been supporting governments, national oil companies, and some of the world’s largest oil majors since 1981, launched its Latin Chapter tonight at the Herdmanston Lodge.

Delivering brief presentations about the inner workings of AIPN were two of its Directors, Michael Beirne and Willem Bloem.

Beirne explained that AIPN provides quality service and value to members through conferences, workshops and educational programmes of the highest standard. He noted that the association hosts several quality events each year that provide networking opportunities in major petroleum regions and provide valuable educational programmes and tools.

AIPN also provides model contracts that are widely accepted and used in the industry.

Bloem was keen to note that AIPN has over 3000 members in more than 110 countries, representing numerous international oil and gas companies, host governments, law firms, and academic institutions. He noted too that AIPN members come from a variety of disciplines.

Further to this, the Director said that membership for the association is available to anyone who is engaged in, or who has an interest in engaging in international negotiations work. Guyana Standard understands that membership is also available to students enrolled in a university or an institution of higher learning.

The event was sponsored by Hughes, Fields, and Stoby. The law firm became a member of AIPN earlier this year.
