ExxonMobil Guyana is forging ahead with developmental drilling operations at the Yellowtail well site within Guyana’s Exclusive Economic Zone. 

According to a June 19 notice from Guyana’s Maritime Administration Department (MARAD), the Modu Bob Douglas is spearheading the drilling activities, scheduled to wrap up by July 31, 2024. 

The well site is approximately 112.2 nautical miles (208.7 kilometers) off the Coast of Guyana and covers an area of 0.29 square nautical miles (1 square kilometer).

Topsides module lifting for the vessel for the Yellowtail project –  ONE GUYANA – began this year. 

The vessel is being designed to produce 250,000 barrels of oil per day, with an associated gas treatment capacity of 450 million cubic feet per day and water injection capacity of 300,000 barrels per day. The floater will be spread moored in water depth of about 1,800 meters and will be able to store around two million barrels of crude oil.

US$10B Yellowtail Project set to unleash a tsunami of economic benefits

The development plan for Yellowtail includes six drill centers and the drilling of up to 67 development wells, including 26 production and 25 injection wells. A subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) production system comprising 51 enhanced vertical deepwater trees (EVDT) with associated tooling, as well as 12 manifolds with related controls and tie-in equipment, will also be installed for the project by TechnipFMC.
