The very first oil production vessel to be placed in Guyana’s waters, the Liza Destiny, has departed Singapore for these shores.

According ExxonMobil, the Liza Destiny has a production capacity up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day and an overall storage volume of 1.6 million barrels.

ExxonMobil, in a release on Thursday, said the Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel is expected to arrive here September as the country prepares for first oil in less than a year.

During normal operations, there will be at least 80 persons living and working onboard the vessel.

The release stated that twenty-four Operations and Maintenance technicians, who are currently being trained in Canada, will return in 2020 to support work on the Liza Destiny.

It was noted that the FPSO “is a significant component of the Liza Phase 1 development which involves four undersea drill centres with 17 production wells.” Country Manager Rod Henson expressed his satisfaction with the work done so far.
