Liza Phase 2 - Development description

The development plan involves a second floating, production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) and related subsea equipment, umbilical, risers and flowlines.

The development concept is similar to that of Liza phase 1. Approximately 35-40 wells may be drilled at two subsea drill centers which will consist of a combination of producers and injectors to support production of oil, injection of water, and reinjection of associated gas.

The FPSO will have an estimated production capacity of approximately 190,000 to 220,000 barrels of oil per day.

CEO Bruno Chabas represented SBM Offshore at the naming ceremony for the Liza Destiny FPSO on Saturday June 22, 2019 at Keppel Shipyard in Singapore. “This is a very special vessel, which will be the first to operate offshore Guyana. It is a great achievement by all involved in the EPC phases thanks to excellent team work. SBM Offshore is very honored to play its part in this journey for our client ExxonMobil and was honored to host as Godmother the First Lady of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, Her Excellency Madam Sandra Granger,” said SBM Offshore CEO Bruno Chabas.

The construction phase of the FPSO was undertaken by SBM Offshore in Singapore with sub-contractors Dyna-Mac for the topsides and Keppel for the conversion, including upgrade work on the hull and integration of the topsides.

Following arrival in Guyanese waters later this year the SBM Offshore installation team will install the FPSO on the Liza field, located in the Stabroek block. The FPSO is designed to produce up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day, will have associated gas treatment capacity of circa 170 million cubic feet per day and water injection capacity of circa 200,000 barrels per day. The converted VLCC FPSO will be spread moored in water depth of 1,525 meters and will be able to store 1.6 million barrels of crude oil.

According to Guyanese Department of Public Information, the Liza Destiny FPSO converted from a VLCC by Keppel, is expected to reach Guyana in September.

Owned by SBM Offshore, the Liza Destiny FPSO will be deployed at Exxon-operated Liza field as part of the first phase of the development offshore Guyana. First oil is expected in the first quarter of 2020.

Friday data by VesselsValue showed that the FPSO was sailing through the Malacca Strait on Friday, July 19, 2019, with the next stop being Cape Town, South Africa.

ExxonMobil’s Liza field, where the FPSO will be deployed, 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.

The Liza field is expected to start producing up to 120,000 gross bopd by the first quarter of 2020. The first phase is expected to develop around 500 million barrels of oil.

The FPSO, the first of several to be deployed in Guyana, 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.

SBM Offshore Awarded Contracts for ExxonMobil’s Third FPSO in Guyana Based on its Fast4Ward® Program

Unread post by escveritas » Fri Nov 22, 2019 3:53 am

SBM Offshore is pleased to announce that ExxonMobil subsidiary Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL) has awarded the Company contracts to perform Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) for a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessel (FPSO) for the Payara development project located in the Stabroek block in Guyana. EEPGL is the operator of the Stabroek block with partners Hess Guyana Exploration Ltd. and CNOOC Petroleum Guyana Limited.

Prior to necessary government approvals and project sanction, the contract award will initiate a limited release of funds to begin FEED activities and secure a Fast4Ward® hull.

The Fast4Ward® hull is a standard design with the flexibility to be utilized for projects across the deep water market. Following FEED and subject to government approvals in Guyana, project sanction and an authorization to proceed with the next phase, SBM Offshore will construct, install and then lease and operate the FPSO for a period of up to 2 years, after which the FPSO ownership and operation will transfer to EEPGL.

The FPSO, to be named Prosperity, will utilize a design that largely replicates the design of the Liza Unity FPSO. As such, the design is based on SBM Offshore’s industry leading Fast4Ward® program that incorporates the Company’s new build, multi- purpose hull combined with several standardized topsides modules. The FPSO will be designed to produce 220,000 barrels of oil per day, will have associated gas treatment capacity of 400 million cubic feet per day and water injection capacity of 250,000 barrels per day. The FPSO will be spread moored in water depth of about 1,900 meters and will be able to store around 2 million barrels of crude oil.

SBM Offshore is exploring options to maximize local content and Guyanese workforce development, building on efforts to date on the Liza Destiny and Liza Unity FPSOs.

SBM Offshore CEO Bruno Chabas commented: “We are pleased to report that ExxonMobil has selected SBM Offshore to award contracts for a third FPSO in Guyana, starting with the front-end engineering, to continue the world-class deep water development in Guyana. The successful team work with our client ExxonMobil on the Liza Destiny and Liza Unity FPSOs provided a solid foundation for this award. This project will be adding further traction to SBM Offshore’s Fast4Ward® program as its design is incorporating our multi-purpose hull and a number of standardized modules. We look forward to continuing to build on our close collaboration with ExxonMobil in order to also make this project a success.”
