MODEC has issued a Request for Information (RFI) for appropriate accommodation vessel services, catering to a minimum of 150 personnel on board (POB), for operations spanning August 2026 to March 2027.

The RFI outlines requirements for the accommodation vessel, emphasizing safety, connectivity, and operational efficiency. Among the specifications, the vessel must possess a DP-2 or DP-3 system to facilitate safe transit between the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit and the accommodation vessel offshore. Additionally, marine crew for DP operations and gangway personnel must be available on a 24/7 basis to ensure seamless operations.

With uptime being a critical factor, the accommodation vessel is expected to maintain high operational efficiency throughout the specified period and location. A robust POB management system is also mandated to streamline personnel logistics and ensure safety compliance.

MODEC said that compatibility with the FPSO is paramount, requiring suitable connectivity for personnel transit. Furthermore, the vessel’s helideck must be capable of receiving Sikorsky S-92 type helicopters, with provisions for exceptional cases such as Augusta Westland (AW)-139 helicopters.

The accommodation vessel must cater to accommodation needs, offering options for single or shared rooms, along with daily quality catering, cleaning, and laundry services on a 24-hour basis. Moreover, provisions for food supply, waste management, and fuel supply and refueling at the offshore site are essential requirements.

Strict adherence to regulations set by MODEC Guyana Inc, ExxonMobil Guyana Limited, and all local authorities is mandated to ensure compliance and operational integrity.

The Uaru project is ExxonMobil’s fifth Stabroek Block development, and MODEC has been entrusted with the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPC) of the FPSO. The project is expected to achieve first oil in 2026 and will add 250,000 barrels of oil per day to Guyana’s output.
