SBM Offshore has indicated that it kicked off its scope for the construction phase of Liza Unity following a final investment decision (FID) by ExxonMobil in May 2019. Unity will be the second FPSO for the Liza project in Guyana.

The Liza Unity FPSO design is based on the industry leading Fast4Ward® program with a new build, multi-purpose hull combined with several standardized topsides modules.

According to SBM, Leveraging SBM leveraging experience gained on Liza Destiny has allowed the FPSO project teams to fast-track the Liza Unity.

The SBM Offshore teams working on Liza Unity have also been able to leverage the valuable experience built up on the Liza Destiny project, as many of the team members were transferred from the Destiny to the Unity project. This experience, in combination with a close working relationship with our client, sub-contractors and suppliers and a firm commitment to safety and quality has played a key role in the success of the project to date across all phases from engineering, procurement and now the construction phase.
