ExxonMobil has submitted its field development plan (FDP) for the massive Whiptail project – its sixth for the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana.

This is according to ExxonMobil Guyana Limited’s (EMGL) President, Alistair Routledge.

“…so that [submission of FDP] has commenced the process on all regulatory fronts…” he told reporters at a media briefing on Tuesday.

Production levels at Whiptail are expected to be 250,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd) using a floating production, storage and offloading vessel expected to be delivered by SBM Offshore. First oil is expected in late 2027 or 2028.
