The Liza Unity Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel is undergoing final hook-up and commissioning at the ExxonMobil-operated Stabroek Block offshore Guyana in preparation for the start of oil production at the Liza Phase 2 Development.
“Unity is on track to start production in the first quarter of 2022 with a capacity of approximately 220,000 gross barrels of oil per day,” Greg Hill, Chief Operating Officer at Hess Corporation told investors last week.
The Unity is nearly double the capacity of the Liza Destiny, which is 120,000 b/d. The Destiny began production in December 2019 and reached full capacity in late 2020.
When compared to the 17 wells drilled for Liza Phase 1, Phase 2 involves approximately 35-40 wells at two subsea drill centers consisting of a combination of producers and injectors to support production of oil, injection of water and reinjection of associated gas.
