ExxonMobil Guyana Limited (EMGL) is gearing up to engage suppliers for the provision of another set of onshore and offshore services as part of its operations in the Stabroek license area.
According to public requests for information (RFIs), the company intends to establish agreements for the supply of three or more offshore terminal tugs dedicated to servicing routes between EMGL’s shore base in Georgetown and its operational zones in the Stabroek block.
Additionally, Exxon said plans are in place for services involving one or more chemical carrier platform supply vessels (PSVs) within the Georgetown area. Per the RFI, the scope includes options such as chartering pre-negotiated shipbuilding contracts for new builds from multiple shipyards, utilizing existing chemical carrier PSVs, or proposing new builds meeting the requested specifications.
Furthermore, EMGL seeks a contractor to oversee the operation and maintenance of the onshore pipeline vital for its Gas to Energy (GtE) project within the West Bank Demerara and Georgetown vicinity. This project is an offshore/onshore development that will transmit gas from existing offshore developments to an onshore integrated natural gas liquid (NGL) and power plant, an initiative aimed at providing a cost-effective and reliable energy source for Guyana.
EMGL said that the GtE project entails the operation of a 10-inch/12-inch pipeline stretching from the Liza Destiny and Liza Unity floating, production, storage, and offloading vessels (FPSOs) to an onshore integrated plant, capable of transporting up to 60 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of gas. Spanning approximately 25 kilometers, the onshore pipeline, installed at a minimum depth of 1.22 meters, will integrate a fiber optic cable (FOC) system for pipeline leak detection and intrusion detection.
Additionally, EMGL is in search of a contractor to provide subsea and onshore pigging services for the GtE, essential for maintaining the efficiency and integrity of the pipeline system.
