In a highly competitive bid, 25 prominent companies from around the world are vying for the crude marketing contract for Guyana’s oil entitlement from the Stabroek block. 

The list of contenders includes energy giants such as Saudi Aramco, Equinor, Eni, and ADNOC, alongside other global players. The contract, which is set to be awarded between late October and early November, has attracted significant interest in the oil industry.

Previously, BP Oil International Limited secured a one-year contract to market Guyana’s crude, winning the bid against 13 competitors. BP took over from Aramco Trading Limited, a subsidiary of Saudi Aramco, on October 31, 2022. 

Currently, crude production is ongoing from the Liza 1 and 2 projects, with a combined output of 381,000 barrels per day (bpd). The commencement of production for the Payara blend is expected in the third quarter of 2023, coinciding with the Prosperity Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel’s operational start.
