Saipem has been awarded a subsea contract by ExxonMobil subsidiary Esso Exploration and Production Guyana (EEPGL) for the proposed Payara development project located in the Stabroek block offshore Guyana at a water depth of around 2,000 metres.

The contract scope includes subsea structures, risers, and flowlines.

Subject to government approvals, project sanction by EEPGL and its partners HESS Guyana Exploration and CNOOC Nexen Petroleum Guyana and an authorisation to proceed with the final phase, Saipem will perform the detailed engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) of a large subsea production facility. This facility will include approximately 130 kilometres of flowlines, rigid risers, associated terminations, and jumpers together with the installation of manifolds, flexible risers, dynamic and static umbilicals, and flying leads.

Testing and pre-commissioning of the subsea field will follow installation.

The pipelay vessels FDS2 and Constellation will perform the offshore operations.
