The Liza Destiny FPSO has reached Guyanese waters 42 days after it set sail from a shipyard in Singapore.
The news of the FPSO arriving in Guyana has been confirmed by Hess Corp, a partner in the ExxonMobil operated Stabroek block, where the Liza Destiny will now be moored.
Able to produce up to 120,000 barrels a day, the Liza Destiny will be used by ExxonMobil to for the development of the first phase of the Liza offshore oil field.
“After clearing customs, hookup and installation of the Liza Destiny FPSO will begin,” Hess said Thursday.
The Liza Phase 1 development is on track for startup by the first quarter of 2020, which will make Guyana an oil-producing nation.
ExxonMobil’s Liza field sits in the giant Stabroek block, which covers almost 27,000 square kilometers, circa 200 kilometers offshore Guyana and where ExxonMobil has struck more than a dozen oil discoveries which are yet to be developed, meaning a couple of more FPSOs should be deployed in Guyana in the upcoming years.
The Liza FPSO, converted from a VLCC by Keppel, will be spread moored in a water depth of 1,525 meters and will be able to store 1.6 million barrels of crude oil.
Liza Destiny, Guyana’s first oil production vessel, has arrived at the Stabroek Block after traveling 42 days. This vessel is a significant component of the Liza Phase 1 development, which will produce up to 120,000 gross barrels of oil per day.https://t.co/Ssphmh2Rla pic.twitter.com/vdz90fHPWD
