(Go Integrated Group, 26.May.2024) — MODEC recently announced that the keel laying for the FPSO Errea Wittu hull has been completed five weeks ahead of schedule. This is an important achievement for the vessel which will operate at the $12.7bn Uaru project, the fifth oil development in the ExxonMobil-operated Stabroek Block. 

MODEC said this performance milestone demonstrates the dedication and collaboration of the teams involved, adding that it takes pride in maintaining a strong safety record with zero Lost Time Injuries (LTI). 

MODEC also noted that “Errea Witu” which means “abundance”, will add approximately 250,000 barrels of daily capacity after a targeted startup in 2026. Overall, this FPSO will tap a resource base of more than 800 million barrels of oil in Guyana’s deep waters. 

Once completed, the Japanese shipbuilder said the Errea Witu will be one of the most sustainable FPSOs in the world. Not only will it represent a vessel of excellence in resource extraction but also embody the company’s commitment to local content, prioritizing skills transfer and Guyanese participation.
