ExxonMobil is forging ahead with its fibre optic cable installation activities at the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana this month, the Maritime Administration Department (MARAD) said in a notice.
“This exercise is scheduled to conclude on October 10, 2021, and will incorporate the use of the MRSV Siem Dorado which will display the international signal for vessels engaged in such activities,” MARAD said.
The survey area is situated approximately 98.4 nautical miles (182.2 kilometers) offshore and covers an area of 272 square nautical miles (919.3 square kilometers).
The company is implementing a secure, high-speed fibre-optic/wireless transport service to efficiently manage oil production at the Stabroek Block.
The project will connect the onshore and offshore facilities to Guyana’s foundation infrastructure, thereby allowing it to improve productivity (field access data and planning), support remote operations, and support reliability (process monitoring and inspection).
