General – Gas to Energy
Subsea 7 and Van Oord today announced the award of a contract by ExxonMobil affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana for the Gas to Energy project offshore Guyana, in water depths of up to 1,450 metres.
The scope covers the project management, engineering, and installation of approximately 190 kilometres of pipeline, with an associated shallow water portion and onshore approach making landfall to the west of the Demerara River, along the coast of Guyana.
Craig Broussard, Vice President for Subsea 7 US, said: “This is an important project to support the Guyanese people and we look forward to continuing our relationship with EEPGL in one of the most prolific and exciting development basins in the world.”
Hans van Gaalen, Commercial Director for Van Oord, adds: “Developing the coastal infrastructure for the project will allow our Subsea 7 and Van Oord consortium to positively contribute to the development of Guyana’s electricity supply which in turn will reduce Guyana’s dependence on imported fuels.”
