Global oil and gas company, TechnipFMC, has been awarded a contract by ExxonMobil affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited, for delivery of the subsea system for the Payara development project.

Payara, ExxonMobil’s 3rd development at the Stabroek Block, was approved by the Guyana government on Wednesday paving the way for final investment decision by ExxonMobil.

TechnipFMC said it will manufacture and deliver the subsea production system, including 41 enhanced vertical deep-water trees and associated tooling, six flexible risers and ten manifolds along with associated controls and tie-in equipment.

“We are delighted to take the next step in the partnership established with ExxonMobil and the country of Guyana for their subsea developments,” said Arnaud Pieton, President Subsea. “As a continuation from Liza phase 1 and 2, this award is a tribute to the value created through this partnership and will also lead to growing further TechnipFMC’s local presence in Guyana.”

Pieton said the company continues to develop and deliver the most advanced proven subsea technologies enabling these developments with the schedule certainty required for the Payara Project first oil.

“In support of this project, TechnipFMC will continue hiring and training Guyanese engineers,” the company said.

In August, TechnipFMC invited Guyanese companies to submit Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for the construction of facilities it needs to support its subsea projects offshore the South American country.

The company said for its ongoing projects in Guyana, it will be providing Enhanced Vertical Deepwater Trees (EVDT), Tooling, Manifolds, Controls and Tie-in Equipment.

Payara is located approximately 193 km (120 miles) offshore Guyana with water depths of 1,500 m (4,900 ft) to 1,900 m (6,200 ft).

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK.  Our Blog and Newsletter  would not only carry  articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections.

It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana.  This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000.  Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s.  The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating.  We hope this changes, and soon.

Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren.  The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly.  This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country.  Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.

This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines.  As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
