Oil Bonanza Plunges Guyana Into Political Crisis

Guyana is a country on South Americas coast. It is a part of The Three Guianas which make up the eastern portion of what is known as the Caribbean North. This country in particular is bigger than the other two countries of The Three Guinas. Unfortunately, Guyana is one of the poorest countries in South America and affected negatively by drug trade.

It has been discovered that on the coast of Guyana there is a get rich amount of oil. ExxonMobil estimates around 8 Billion barrels. Enough that will double the country's gross domestic product. Although there is a lot to look forward to, Guyana is under very intense scrutiny. Elections for this country are currently happening causing tremendous stress and a general concern over how the results of this election will affect the country's economy. The primary concern is that the person who wins this election will come into office just as the monetary production of the discovered oil will be trickling in.
