BREAKING: Second oil ship arrives in Guyana ahead of schedule
The Liza Unity, the second floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel which will operate in the giant oil fields offshore Guyana, arrived in Guyana on Tuesday morning.
The News Room confirmed this with Minister of Natural Resources Vickram Bharrat, who also confirmed that the vessel arrived ahead of schedule. The Liza Unity left Singapore in early September and it was expected to arrive by Mid-November.
The expected startup of production with this vessel was pegged at early 2022; Bharrat could not state whether the early arrival of the vessel meant that there would be an earlier start of production.
This Liza Unity vessel is twice the size of the one currently in operation. It is built to produce 220,000 barrels of oil per day with an overall storage volume of up to two million barrels.
