The Normand Installer Multi-Purpose Offshore Vessel has completed the installation of suction piles and mooring lines at the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana, in preparation for the arrival and hook-up of the massive 220,000 bpd Liza Unity FPSO, which is expected to set sail for the South American country by mid-year.

SBM Offshore said Thursday the topsides module lifting campaign for the FPSO is significantly underway and the progress of the topsides integration phase is gaining momentum in the yards in Singapore, which are operating at planned capacity following their re-opening in the third quarter of 2020.

“Offshore Guyana, SBM Offshore’s Normand Installer vessel has successfully completed the installation of the suction piles and mooring lines, which are now ready for pick-up and hook-up to the FPSO upon its arrival,” SBM Offshore said. “The project continues to target first oil in 2022 in line with client planning.”

The Liza Unity FPSO is the second oil production vessel to be built by the Dutch Floater Specialist for operations offshore Guyana, on contract with U.S. oil major, ExxonMobil, operator at the Stabroek Block.

SBM Offshore has also been contracted to build a third vessel – the Prosperity FPSO – for oil production operations in Guyana.

“The [Prosperity] hull has been commissioned and is ready for the next steps in lay-up in Batam, Indonesia,” the company said. “All major project purchase orders have been placed. The engineering is progressing as planned, benefiting from synergies with the Liza Unity project and the Fast4Ward® module catalogue. The project is progressing according to schedule with a planned completion in 2024.”

Commissioning of the first oil production vessel built by the Dutch company for Guyana – Liza Destiny – was finalized in December 2020.
