Yellowtail will develop a much larger resource base than any of the previous developments at the ExxonMobil-operated Stabroek Block. It will be targeting 250,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd) at peak.

When the project comes online in 2025 it will add to the 120,000 bpd from Liza Phase 1, 220,000 bpd from Phase 2 of the Liza Development and 220,000 bpd from Payara, ramping up total production to more than 800,000 bpd.
