Guyana’s third oil production vessel – Prosperity – has achieved background flare in a record 39 days, according to an announcement by ExxonMobil Guyana Limited (EMGL) on Wednesday. 

EMGL said the accomplishment marks a significant milestone in the company’s commitment to efficient and environmentally responsible offshore operations. 

“Delivering ahead of expectation underscores the value of the lessons learned from our previous projects, which we applied meticulously to Payara’s start-up. We are committed to delivering results that build on our track record of operational excellence,” ExxonMobil Guyana President Alistair Routledge remarked.

Exxon reminded that just like the Liza Phase 1 and 2 projects, Payara’s project design eliminates routine flaring by using produced gas to power the vessel. the rest of the gas is reinjected into the reservoir to “improve oil recovery, thereby reducing emissions.” 

The Payara project began production on November 14; it is currently producing more than 180,000 barrels of oil per day, Exxon said.

The project is on track to reach its initial production capacity of 220,000 barrels per day during this quarter. 

Exxon said total production from the first three Stabroek block projects is currently over 550,000 barrels per day and is expected to surpass 600,000 barrels per day this year.

Dutch floater specialist SBM Offshore is the builder and operator of the Prosperity FPSO as well as the Liza and Destiny and Unity vessels.
