On Tuesday, the Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel, Liza Destiny, received its first helideck inspection certificate from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA).

A helideck is a platform on a vessel or offshore structure, which allows helicopters to land and take off.

The certificate was handed over to Country Manager of TLC Guyana Inc., Mathiev Guiraud at GCAA’s High Street, Kingston, Georgetown office.

Country Manager of TLC Guyana Inc., Mathiev Guiraud, receives the certification for the Lisa Destiny helideck from Director General of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Egbert Field.

TLC Guyana Inc. was contracted by Dutch floater specialist SBM Offshore to handle the logistics, relating to the importation and licensing of the vessel.

Director General of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Egbert Field, said he is pleased that the agency is playing such a significant role in the oil and gas industry.

He added, “The helideck is very important since it is the lifeline for not only passengers but for goods and other pieces of expensive equipment that would be needed on these vessels that would be ferried by helicopters.”

The helideck for the FPSO was inspected in Singapore by a technical team from the GCAA with support from its counterparts from the Ghana Aviation Authority, prior to its arrival in the Stabroek Block, offshore Guyana on August 29.

Field explained that, “That inspection was successful and as such we are presenting our first of I’m sure many certification for inspections of the helideck.”

Country Manager of TLC Guyana Inc., Mathiev Guiraud, thanked GCAA for making the process as smooth as possible and like Mr. Field, he is hopeful that there will be many more such certifications.

He said, “We got all the authorization starting with the GCAA authorities for the FPSO to arrive in Guyana to be able to work in the Guyanese waters so it is the first one but surely not the last and I hope our company TLC Guyana Inc will have the opportunity to work again with the GCAA in the near future.”

The Liza Destiny, Guyana’s first oil production complex, arrived in the Stabroek Block, on Thursday, August 29.

The vessel has a production capacity of up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day and an overall storage volume of 1.6 million barrels.
