ExxonMobil Guyana is expected to continue with pipelaying activities from the West Coast of the Demerara River toward the Stabroek Block for the Gas-to-Energy project.

Guyana’s Maritime Administration said in a notice that the shallow water pipelaying barges Stingray and Tamuata will be engaged in the activities which will conclude at the end of August 2024. The operation will incorporate the use of more than 15 vessels.

Mariners are being advised to avoid a marine exclusion zone stretching from the coast to approximately 19.3 nautical miles (35.7 kilometers) offshore and covering an area of 64.5 square nautical miles (221.2 square kilometers).

Exxon expects to complete its pipeline installation by yearend. That is one component of the Gas-to-Energy project. The first phase entails the delivery of offshore natural gas through the pipeline, to an integrated gas processing facility at Wales on the West Bank of Demerara. 

A natural gas liquids (NGL) facility will separate products like propane for commercialization and the dry gas will be used for domestic power generation. The Guyana government is responsible for the construction of that facility, which is expected to be delivered by its contractor (CH4/Lindsayca) in early 2025

A subsequent phase is expected to facilitate the introduction of a larger volume of gas through the pipeline to regional market needs.
