DeepOcean attains Guyana offshore contract

Ocean services provider, DeepOcean, has been awarded a contract by ExxonMobil Guyana for the provision of subsea construction and inspection, maintenance, and repair (IMR) services offshore Guyana, South America.

Under the contract, DeepOcean will plan and execute a wide range of subsea activities, including subsea construction and jumper installations as well as subsea IMR work, at ExxonMobil Guyana’s operations at the Stabroek Block, located approximately 120 miles offshore Guyana.

DeepOcean will deploy the Siem Day multi-purpose support vessel (MPSV) to conduct subsea operations.

The Siem Day is equipped with a 250 metric-tonne crane, technology, and features enabling efficient and safe operation in the harshest offshore environments.

The vessel holds a large deck space, advanced dynamic positioning systems, and dual ROV spreads, ensuring superior performance and maximum productivity.

The Stabroek Block is one of the world’s most promising oil and gas discoveries according to DeepOcean, with estimated recoverable resources exceeding eight billion oil-equivalent barrels to date.

“This is our first major contract with ExxonMobil in the Americas and our market entry into the exciting Guyana market,” said Tony Stokes, President of DeepOcean’s American operation, which will manage the work from DeepOcean’s side.

“We consider this is a confirmation of our team’s expertise and the technical solutions we bring to the table.”

“We are highly committed to delivering high-quality subsea services and solutions, and we look forward to working closely with ExxonMobil Guyana to support their operations in the various field developments in the Stabroek Block.”

In the summer of 2023, ExxonMobil and Taiwanese shipping company, Evergreen Line, successfully completed a commercial marine biofuel oil bunkering in the Port of Singapore.

More recently, ExxonMobil planned to construct a pilot plant based on carbonate fuel cell technology at the Botlek site in the Port of Rotterdam.
