ABB to power ExxonMobil's new Guyana FPSO with electrical systems

ZURICH - ABB (ST: ABB ) has been chosen by Offshore Frontier Solution Pte. Ltd., a joint venture between MODEC and Toyo Engineering Corp., to supply electrical systems for ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM )'s upcoming Errea Wittu FPSO located in the Stabroek block, offshore Guyana. This vessel is a pivotal component in the development of the Snoek, Mako, and Uaru fields and is anticipated to begin operations by 2026.

The Errea Wittu FPSO is expected to significantly boost oil production capacity in the region, with a target of processing 250,000 barrels of oil per day and treating 540 million cubic feet of gas daily. ABB's contribution will be its eHouse modular substations, which are integral to the vessel's power management. This collaboration marks the fourteenth time ABB has partnered with MODEC to deliver such systems for FPSOs in South America.

The project is not only a technical achievement but also a milestone for Guyana's economic development. The country is on a path to becoming a major offshore oil producer, with projections of reaching a daily output of 1.7 million barrels by 2035.
