SBM lands Liza FPSO job

Written by  OE Staff Thursday, 22 June 2017 07:44

ExxonMobil has awarded SBM Offshore a contract to construct, install, lease and operate a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) for its giant Liza project offshore Guyana.

The FPSO is designed to produce up to 120,000 b/d, will have associated gas treatment capacity of circa 170 MMcf/d and water injection capacity of circa 200,000 b/d. The converted VLCC FPSO will be spread moored in water depth of 1525m and will be able to store 1.6 MMbbl of crude oil.

The Liza field is in the Stabroek block, which covers almost 27,000sq km, about 200km offshore Guyana.

The award follows the completion of front-end engineering studies and the final investment decision on the project by ExxonMobil.

Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Ltd. is the operator and holds a 45% interest in the Stabroek block. Partners include Hess Guyana Exploration Ltd. (30%), and CNOOC Nexen Petroleum Guyana (25%).
