Exxon Mobil Corp.’s gas-to-power project in Guyana is a “win-win proposition particularly for the people of Guyana,” the Texas-based company’s CEO Darren Woods said during the first quarter 2024 webcast with analysts.

Exxon continues to look for opportunities to assist communities in countries on a development path, Woods said Apr. 26, citing Guyana as a good example of that strategy.

Guyana’s offshore gas production from the prolific Stabroek Block will be used to feed an onshore gas plant and allow the country to displace diesel fuel use in power generation, reducing emissions related to the use of the fossil fuel.

Construction continues on a 130-mile pipeline network and associated infrastructure that will ship 50 MMcf/d of gas from the Liza Field to a 300-megawatt onshore power plant. The plant is expected to be constructed and operated by the Guyanese government, according to Hess.

Exxon Mobil Guyana Ltd. expects to complete pipeline construction and field hook-up by the end of 2024.

The project will allow Guyana “to replace a relatively inefficient high emissions power generation system that-s fairly unreliable with something that-s cleaner, lower emissions and much more reliable, and should be much more cost effective,” Woods said.
