In an announcement that underscores ExxonMobil Guyana’s commitment to advancing its offshore operations, the company has revealed intentions to establish a partnership for personnel travel vessel services. This initiative was recently disclosed through a public Request for Information (RFI), inviting well-qualified firms to come forth and potentially secure a pivotal role in the company’s offshore endeavors.
Central to the company’s objective, as outlined in the RFI, is the identification of suppliers possessing the capability to provide an offshore vessel equipped with a specially designed gangway. This gangway is engineered to facilitate the safe and seamless boarding of crude-lifting tankers.
The importance of this aspect cannot be overstated, as it plays a critical role in ensuring the secure and efficient transfer of personnel to and from these tankers. These vessels are integral to the intricate process of transporting crude oil from offshore platforms to global markets.
ExxonMobil’s proactive pursuit of capable suppliers echoes its unwavering dedication to maintaining the highest standards of safety. Recognizing the distinctive challenges and safety prerequisites inherent in offshore oil and gas operations, the requirement for specialized personnel travel vessel services is paramount.
In the RFI Exxon notes that du the bid process, all prospective EGL contractors are required to demonstrate awareness of the Local Content Act (2021) and its potential application to their work under the scope.
Demonstrating a keen awareness of the Local Content Act (2021) and its potential implications for their projects within the Exxon bid process has become a key requirement for prospective contractors.
In addition, bidders must intricately weave a preliminary local content strategy into their submissions, outlining their commitment to fulfilling the local content expectations outlined both below and in the Act. Upon being awarded the contract, successful bidders are then expected to seamlessly execute an approved plan that aligns with the Act’s stipulations.
Presently, ExxonMobil operates two active oil developments within Guyana’s offshore Stabroek Block. Notably, the Liza Phase 1 development sees lifts occurring every six to seven days, while the Liza Phase 2 development witnesses lifts every four to five days.
