ExxonMobil’s scheduled shutdown of the Liza Destiny and Liza Unity floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels to facilitate the Gas-to-Energy project pipeline hookup will occur sometime in July-August. 

Country President, Alistair Routledge disclosed same at an April 30 press conference. 

“It’ll be roughly about 14 days – two weeks for each one,” he said. 

The Liza Destiny’s production capacity is pegged at 162,000 barrels per day (b/d) and the Liza Unity’s stands around 252,000 b/d, Routledge said.  With the downtime, he clarified that that production would not be lost, merely “deferred.” 

“The oil is still in the ground. It is just a question of when we produce,” he added.

Exxon is responsible for building a pipeline to bring the gas from the Liza field in the Stabroek Block to onshore facilities. Installation of the onshore component is 70% complete, Routledge said. The company expects to conclude by 2024, but gas is not expected to be transported until the completion of the onshore component in 2025. The gas will be used for power generation and other forms of commercialization. 

Work has commenced on a site, where an integrated gas processing facility will be constructed. The Guyana government contracted a US-based group (CH4-Lindsayca) to build-out the facility at Wales, West Bank Demerara, for US$759 million.
