The drillship Noble Don Taylor has arrived offshore Guyana to begin a one-year contract for drill campaigns at the Stabroek Block, operated by US oil major ExxonMobil, with co-venturers Hess and China’s CNOOC.

The Noble Don Taylor brings the total number of drillships at Stabroek to four, joining sister vessels Noble Bob Douglas and Noble Tom Madden, along with the Stena Carron. The Don Taylor arrived in Guyana’s waters on November 13.

Services company RAMPS Logistics Guyana’s team coordinated the customs clearance for the vessel to enter the country’s waters.

Richard DeNobrega, Ramps Logistics Operations Director (Guyana), told OilNOW on Wednesday the company is proud to be working on this project as offshore activities in the South American country ramps up.

“Our team had the opportunity to board the vessel to provide clearance operations alongside the Guyanese Authorities. We are excited to be part of this project and to be supporting the oil and gas industry as it emerges in Guyana,” he stated.

Since 2015, Ramps has provided the full complement of cross-border logistics services to ExxonMobil, in support of their exploration and development drilling in Guyana. Ramps has also managed similar cross-border projects for Tullow Oil and Kosmos Energy in Suriname during 2017 and 2018.

Oil production in Guyana is set to commence, potentially within weeks, at the 120,000 barrels per day Liza Phase 1 Development project.
