ExxonMobil Guyana on Friday held a virtual session with over 120 stakeholders to update them on the company’s offshore operations in the South American country.
President of ExxonMobil Guyana, Alistair Routledge, and Production Manager, Mike Ryan, updated participants on the operations of the Liza Destiny FPSO and provided details on the challenges being faced with a faulty gas compressor that has since been sent to Germany for repairs. Participants also had the opportunity to ask questions.
This session follows one held with the media earlier in the week to update them on the plans being implemented to have the compressor repaired and to explain the oil production and gas reinjection process.
The company has vowed to ensure regular updates are provided to the media and stakeholders on its operations and has been doing so over the months.
ExxonMobil Guyana also said on Friday that the 3rd stage compressor, suction silencer and necessary spare parts have been cleared with customs in Germany, unpacked and are being disassembled for inspection and assessment.
“This process, spearheaded by technical experts from the vessel’s owner SBM Offshore, the equipment manufacturer MAN Energy Solutions and ExxonMobil, is critical as it will determine the repair plan and timeline,” Janelle Persaud, Public and Government Affairs Advisor said.
The company said it continues to safely manage production and flare levels on the Liza Destiny while also providing daily updates to the government.
