TechnipFMC has been awarded a contract by an affiliate of ExxonMobil Corporation for the engineering of the subsea system for the proposed Liza Phase 2 project.

Following engineering and subject to requisite government approvals, project sanction and an authorisation to proceed with the next phase, TechnipFMC will then manufacture and deliver the subsea equipment. Delivery would include 30 enhanced vertical deepwater trees and associated tooling, as well as eight manifolds and associated controls and tie-in equipment.

“We are very pleased that ExxonMobil has selected TechnipFMC to commence engineering for the Liza Phase 2 subsea equipment. We share ExxonMobil’s values of collaboration, trust, and overall commitment to operational excellence and the successful long-term development of the project,” says Doug Pferdehirt, CEO of TechnipFMC.

In support of this project, TechnipFMC will continue hiring and training Guyanese engineers.

The Liza Phase 2 development is located approximately 193 km offshore Guyana on the Stabroek Block with water depths of 1,500 m to 1,900 m. ExxonMobil affiliate, Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL), is the operator.
