Italian offshore contractor, Saipem, is looking for a local company to carry out dredge maintenance work on the quay wall of its Guyana facility located on the East Bank of Demerara.

In an Expression of Interest (EOI), Saipem outlined that the interested firms must be registered with the Local Content Secretariat (LCS) and the Centre for Local Business Development (CLDB) among other secondary requirements.

According to the EOI, the firm will need to carry out a bathymetric survey using a single or multi-beam echo sounder. A bathymetric survey sometimes referred to as a ‘fathometric survey’, is a type of hydrographic (water-based) survey that maps the depths and shapes of underwater terrain to illustrate the land that lies below.

Saipem is targeting a dredging level of -6.5 metres below the chart datum (water level surface).

They would also need to have a pontoon and excavator to remove debris.

Saipem opened the Guyana facility back in June, 2021.

It features a heavy load-bearing jetty, the largest heavy lift crane in Guyana and specialised welding and testing equipment.

Since starting operations in Guyana in May 2018, the oilfield services company has established a country office with over 80% of its workforce now being Guyanese.

Saipem has been awarded subsea contracts by ExxonMobil Guyana for the first two phases of the Liza development as well as the Payara development in the Stabroek Block.
