ExxonMobil, the operator of Guyana’s prolific Stabroek Block, is currently seeking companies to provide civil works and road construction services for its new headquarter (HQ) building at Ogle, East Coast Demerara.
In a recently published Request for Information (RFI), the company mentioned that it is in the process of constructing the headquarters for its local subsidiary, Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL). Consequently, it is actively looking to “identify suppliers to establish an agreement for the provision of civil works and road construction services.”
In 2019, a contract was awarded to NABI/KCL Oilfield Construction Services Guyana for the construction of the impressive US$160M HQ building. According to a previously published RFI by Exxon, the project includes the construction of two buildings which will be able to accommodate a total of 500 persons, an outdoor pavilion, paving, landscaping, fill and storm drainage, site utilities, plumbing utilities, and electrical works.
To facilitate smooth access to the facility, a critical access road needs to be constructed. The facility is expected to serve ExxonMobil for approximately 40 years, supporting its ongoing and future campaigns in Guyana. Additionally, the site will feature an offshore command center, slated for completion by the second quarter of 2024.
ExxonMobil, through its subsidiary EEPGL, has been in operation since 2015 when the first discovery in the esteemed Stabroek Block was made.
At present, the ExxonMobil-led consortium operating in the Stabroek Block has successfully initiated five developments. Notably, the Liza Unity and Liza Destiny projects are currently producing an average of 400,000 barrels per day, with expectations to reach 1.2 million barrels per day by 2027. The upcoming Payara development is scheduled to commence first oil production in the fourth quarter of 2023, while the Yellowtail development is projected to deliver its first oil by 2025.
Furthermore, the Uaru project, the consortium’s fifth development, is anticipated to commence first oil production in the second quarter of 2027. Once completed, Guyana’s overall production rate is set to exceed an impressive 1,200,000 barrels of oil per day, further solidifying its position as a key player in the global oil market.
