tary separation and early retire-
ment packages as it moves to cut
The offer to full-time, perma-
nent employees who have no dis-
ciplinary action pending against
them and have been employed for
more than six years, comes less
than three months after share-
holder governments agreed on a
plan to send home 180 workers.
The Antigua-based carrier said
downsizing was the only way to
ensure its survival.
"We must remove the costs that
we were carrying as a larger entity.
The company wishes to avoid hav-

dancies in order to achieve this,"
stated the offer document signed
by director of human resources

to find oil and natural gas in dis-
puted waters off Guyana is showing
promise, a representative of Exxon
Mobil in the South American coun-
try said yesterday.
Exxon Mobile country manager
Jeff Simons said a borehole in the
Atlantic Ocean in an area claimed
by Venezuela has produced positive
results though he declined to discuss
specifics about what had been found.
"We have found hydrocarbons but
we are still evaluating to see to what
extent it is in commercial quantities,"
"We do not want to go too far
down the road at this point. We will
know after the testing and evaluation
Natural Resources Minister Robert
Persaud planned to meet with com-
pany officials and discuss the find.
