Reassembly of the Liza Destiny FPSO flash gas compressor sent to Germany for repairs continues at the MAN Energy Solutions workshop.
ExxonMobil Guyana said on Tuesday in an operations update that over the weekend, the MAN team completed adjustments to achieve the required clearances on the discharge side of the compressor and has started verifications of internal machinery profiles.
“Technical experts are also finalizing near-term recommendations for repair and potential upgrade to the discharge silencer,” Public and Government Affairs Advisor, Janelle Persaud said.
She stated that on the Liza Destiny FPSO, the company continues to manage production and flare levels, “maintaining a careful balance of sustained production and appropriate environmental considerations.”
In addition to the repairs on the existing equipment, the company said an order has been placed for a new flash gas compressor which will be available closer to the end of the year, given the complex nature of the equipment.
“We continue to provide regular updates to government and other key stakeholders while also tirelessly working to restore operations and reduce the flare to pilot levels of less than one percent of the produced gas,” Persaud said.
