ExxonMobil, operator at the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana, is moving forward with its development drilling operations for phase 2 of the Liza project.

The Noble Tom Madden and Bob Douglas are currently drilling development wells just over 100 nautical miles of the country’s coast.

The US$6 billion Liza phase 2 development will have a total of six drill centers as well as approximately 30 wells, including 15 for production, nine for water injection and six for gas injection. Production start-up is expected by mid-2022.

The project will utilize the Liza Unity FPSO which is currently being constructed in Singapore. The vessel will have a gross production capacity of 220,000 barrels of oil per day and will develop approximately 600 million barrels of oil.

The Noble Don Taylor is currently conducting drill operations at the Redtail-1 prospect located some 103 nautical miles off the country’s coast, while the Stena Carron will soon be moving to the Kaieteur Block to spud the Tanager-1 well.

To date, ExxonMobil has made 16 discoveries at the Stabroek block amounting to more than 8 billion barrels of oil equivalent resources.
