Guyana has gone from having no known oil resources just 6 years ago to now holding over 9 billion barrels of oil equivalent. The small South American country is now well on its way to becoming one of Latin America’s top three oil producers, surpassing OPEC founding member, Venezuela.

So far, a total of three developments have been sanctioned with an application now in for a fourth. Total output from these projects will push Guyana’s production beyond 800,000 bpd by 2025.

ExxonMobil, operator of the 6.6 million acres Stabroek Block, anticipates around 10 FPSOs will be needed to develop the current estimated recoverable resources on the block.
