In two public requests for information, ExxonMobil Guyana Limited said it plans to put agreements in place to provide ocean current monitoring services and air quality monitoring stations. 

As such, suitable firms are being sought. 

Firstly, Exxon said it needs five air quality monitoring stations in Guyana. Three will be used to develop a broader understanding of the country’s baseline air quality. The remainder will be used to better understand the potential impact of the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels operating offshore the South American country.

ExxonMobil explained that the oceanographic services specifically tailored to the ocean industry are to assist with the planning of safe and efficient operations to minimise costly downtime caused by challenging metocean conditions. These can be wind speed, direction, gustiness, wind rose and wind spectrum air temperature humidity occurrence and strength of typhoons, hurricanes, and (other) cyclones.

Exxon said the firm must provide daily site-specific forecasts (SSF) with detailed present conditions at the drilling site. It must also provide the location of the North Brazil Current (NBC) retroflection, along with the location, orientation, migration speed, and direction of all NBC rings in the region. 

Exxon currently has two FPSOs producing oil from Guyana’s Stabroek Block – Liza Destiny and Liza Unity. Before the end of the year, a third vessel – Prosperity – will start producing.
