SBM Offshore posted footage of the lifting of the first series of topside modules onto the hull of the Prosperity floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, on Wednesday.
Work on the FPSO for ExxonMobil Guyana’s third development project at the Payara well, is ongoing at Keppel Shipyard, Singapore. Authorities in Guyana approved this project in September 2020.
Prosperity is designed to produce 220,000 barrels of crude per day, like its predecessor, the Liza Unity, and will have storage capacity of 2 million barrels.
Prosperity will join the Liza Unity and its sister vessel, the Liza Destiny in the Stabroek block, in 2024.
ExxonMobil subsidiary, Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL), is the operator and holds a 45% interest in the block while Hess and CNOOC hold 30% and 25% respectively.
