Fossil Energy – FPSO
CEO Bruno Chabas represented SBM Offshore at the naming ceremony for the Prosperity FPSO on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, at Keppel Shipyard in Singapore.
“As SBM Offshore’s CEO, I am proud to share in the Prosperity FPSO naming ceremony with you – to celebrate this day which we’ve worked towards relentlessly, together. On behalf of SBM Offshore, we are extremely honoured to play a part in the shared journey of the nation of Guyana, partnering alongside our client ExxonMobil Guyana. Prosperity FPSO is also privileged to call the First Lady of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, Her Excellency Mrs. Arya Ali, her Godmother,” said Mr. Chabas.
The Prosperity FPSO represents SBM Offshore’s second Fast4Ward design, benefitting from standardization of the project`s execution plan and using a fully completed and commissioned MPF hull. The construction and integration of the topside’s modules, riser and mooring structures were undertaken by SBM Offshore in Singapore, with sub-contractors Dyna-Mac for the construction of the main topsides modules and Keppel for fabrication of the riser and mooring structures as well as the integration of the topsides.
Following arrival in Guyanese waters later this year, the SBM Offshore installation team will install the FPSO on the Payara field, located in the Stabroek block. The FPSO is designed to produce up to 220,000 barrels of oil per day, will have associated gas treatment capacity of circa 400 million cubic feet per day, and water injection capacity of circa 250,000 barrels per day. The FPSO will be spread moored in water depth of 1,900 meters and will be able to store 2 million barrels of crude oil.
