Preparations are underway on the Liza Destiny Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel for the return of the flash gas compressor and silencers from MAN Energy solutions in Germany.
ExxonMobil Guyana said in an operations update on Monday that teams are finalizing the logistics for the departure of the equipment which are expected to begin their journey back to the South American country this week.
“This follows the successful completion of repairs, upgrades and mechanical testing of the compressor by MAN Energy Solutions, the equipment’s manufacturer, with quality assurance and control by experts from the vessel’s owner SBM Offshore as well as ExxonMobil,” ExxonMobil Guyana Public and Government Affairs Advisor, Janelle Persaud said.
She said in anticipation of the arrival of the compressor and silencers, teams on the Liza Destiny FPSO continue to prepare rigging and lifting equipment for reinstallation.
The Exxon official also pointed out in the update that teams from the Environmental Protection Agency and the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission are offshore conducting inspection operations on the FPSO. This is part of their routine monitoring of the oil production operations.
