SBM Offshore Confirms Liza FPSO Deal

SBM Offshore has confirmed the award of contracts from ExxonMobil for the next phase of the Liza project in Guyana.

Under these contracts, SBM Offshore will construct, install, lease and operate a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO). This follows completion of front-end engineering studies and the final investment decision on the project by ExxonMobil.

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 1525 meters and will be able to store 1.6 million barrels of crude oil.

SBM Offshore CEO Bruno Chabas said: “We are proud that ExxonMobil awarded SBM Offshore the contracts for the Liza FPSO. The Liza field offshore Guyana is one of the industry’s largest oil discoveries of the past decade. We look forward to cooperating closely with our client and partners to make this project a success. This award underlines SBM Offshore’s continued focus on building on our experience, our long term relationships and FPSO-led strategic vision.”

The Liza field is located in the Stabroek block, which covers almost 27,000 square kilometers, circa 200 kilometers offshore Guyana.

Esso Exploration and Production Guyana is the operator and holds a 45 percent interest in the Stabroek block. Hess Guyana Exploration holds a 30 percent interest, and CNOOC Nexen Petroleum Guyana holds a 25 percent interest.
