The FPSO Errea Wittu will have the capacity to store 2 MMboe. It will produce approximately 250,000 bopd and will have gas treatment capacity of 540 MMcfd, and water injection capacity of 350,000 bpd.

MODEC Group was authorized to proceed with the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) scope for the FPSO in May 2023, following a final investment decision on the Uaru project by ExxonMobil Guyana Limited and its co-venturers. The FPSO mooring system will be supplied by SOFEC, Inc., a MODEC Group company, and consists of a total of 19 mooring legs.

Jumbo Offshore will be using its unique Heavy Lift Construction Vessel Fairplayer, which allows the transport and installation of the 19 suction anchors, 8,800 m of chain sections and 43,168 m of polyester rope in the minimal amount of installation voyages, simplifying the logistics involved.

Brian Boutkan, Manager of Commerce at Jumbo Offshore, said, “On behalf of the entire team, we are very much looking forward to undertaking this project. MODEC can count on Jumbo Offshore’s total commitment to providing a safe and reliable execution. As always, we will be approaching this project as a partner to our client, working in close collaboration with MODEC to ensure the outcome entirely meets their expectations.”
