TechnipFMC has been awarded a large contract by Exxon Mobil Corp. affiliate, Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Ltd., on Nov. 15 to supply the subsea production system for the Yellowtail development.

Subject to government approvals and final project sanction, TechnipFMC will provide project management, engineering, manufacturing and testing capabilities to deliver the overall subsea production system. The scope of the project includes 51 enhanced vertical deepwater trees (EVDT) and associated tooling, as well as 12 manifolds and associated controls and tie-in equipment.

“We are very excited to continue our relationship with Exxon Mobil through this award, which is our fourth within the Stabroek block,” Jonathan Landes, president of subsea at TechnipFMC, said. “We are proud of our dedicated Guyanese employees and are committed to the continued development and expansion of local capabilities.”

TechnipFMC currently employs more than 60 Guyanese, and expects to continue to hire and train additional local staff in support of this award.

For TechnipFMC, a “large” contract is between $500 million and $1 billion; the full contract award will not be included in inbound orders until the project receives final investment decision and government approvals.
