Liza Destiny FPSO Arrives in Guyana

October 2019

Following its voyage west from Singapore and around the African continent, the Liza Destiny arrived in Guyana on August 29. The FPSO cleared customs, and the installation of all 16 mooring lines was completed on September 12. The FPSO’s godmother, Sandra Granger, the First Lady of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, toured her godchild after its early arrival at the Stabroek Block.


With the vessel safely moored on location, workers have been working diligently on the topsides commissioning activities. Along with the gas turbine generators (GTGs), main and injection gas compressors and water injection pumps, the sea water lift pumps were also commissioned. The sea water lift pumps provide the cooling water, utility water, water injection and water for firefighting applications for the FPSO. These pumps could only be commissioned once the vessel arrived in Guyana.

Workers are also working to connect the subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) to the FPSO. The umbilical and riser hook-up commissioning work began in early October and is ongoing. This will be the last major commissioning activity before the project goes onstream.
