ExxonMobil’s prime contractor SBM Offshore; the company that is building the Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading Vessel (FPSO) for oil production in Guyana, is looking to fill a number of positions as preparation for first oil gets underway.

Through its subsidiary Guyana Deep Water Operations, applicants are being invited to fill positions of Storekeeper, Human Resources Supervisor, Production and Mechanical Technicians.

The Liza Destiny FPSO will be located in the Stabroek Block some 200km northeast of Georgetown and will be operated and managed by SBM.

In November 2017 the company invited bids for the provision of manpower services for the operation of the Liza Destiny, scheduled to arrive in Guyana late 2019.

The operation of the Liza Destiny has potential for sustainable, long term local content. At start-up, SBM is expected to have a target of 25% Guyanese, increasing to at least 75% within the first 8 years of operation.

The FPSO is designed to produce up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day, and will have associated gas treatment capacity of around 170 million cubic feet per day and water injection capacity of 200,000 barrels per day.
