ExxonMobil Guyana is looking to hire a firm to provide marine 3D seismic data processing services within the South American nation’s offshore Stabroek Block.

A public Request For Information (RFI) said that Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL) plans to put in place an agreement for the provision of marine 3D seismic data processing services.

Those services include seismic processing of 3D marine streamer seismic data acquired using a towed streamer survey with at least eight streamers – 10 kilometres in length – and two or more multi-string acoustic seismic sources.

Additionally, the selected firm is expected to provide pre-processing services that may include appropriate conditioning of single-sensor or dual-sensor streamer data.

Back in April, Exxon had conducted 4D seismic surveying operations in the Stabroek Block, with the use of the MV Thor Alpha, MV Thor Freyja and SV Ramform Tethys.

The oil major has discovered over 10 billion barrels of oil equivalent since 2015 and continues to pursue an aggressive exploration campaign that could see this increase significantly.

At the tail-end of a 25-well exploration campaign, Exxon applied to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for authorisation to conduct a 35-well campaign. The regulator has requested the company to conduct an environmental impact assessment (EIA).

Company officials have said resources in the Guyana basin could be double that which has already been found. The world-class discoveries at Stabroek have placed Guyana at number 17 on a list of 20 countries for the highest oil reserves in the world.
