ExxonMobil Guyana said on Tuesday technical experts in Germany continue to assess operating data and inspection findings in order to define the required scope of repairs to the compressor and silencer. This process also includes consideration of technical recommendations for any potential upgrades to the equipment.
Over the last several days, the team on the FPSO has completed visual inspection of piping and pipe supports. At the workshop in Germany, mechanical rework of the compressor casing has been undertaken.
ExxonMobil Guyana said it remains committed to working with the vessel’s owner SBM Offshore and the equipment manufacturer MAN Energy Solutions to fix the issue as quickly as possible.
“We operate under a robust regulatory system and comply with all laws, regulations and permits; dedicating thousands of hours monitoring, validating and documenting our compliance to these regulations and our permits,” said Janelle Persaud, ExxonMobil Guyana Public and Government Affairs Advisor.
