Liza Destiny FPSO
A groundbreaking discovery offshore Guyana, the Liza field in Stabroek block will be produced using the Liza Destiny floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. First oil from the field was produced in December.
The Liza Destiny FPSO is a converted very-large-crude-carrier named Tina. The conversion took place in Singapore where crews built and added 14 new processing units, which will enable the FPSO to process oil and offload it to a nearby tanker.
The FPSO is designed to produce up to 120,000 B/D of oil, with storage capacity of up to 1.6 million bbl. There are four drill centers with 17 wells—eight oil producing wells, six water injection wells, and three gas reinjection wells.
Liza Destiny is 334 m long, 58 m wide, and 31 m deep
Construction of the 14 modules took 12 months, starting in January 2018
The modules added 14,000 metric ton of weight to the ship
Modules dehydrate and compress oil flowing from the seabed at a rate of ~8,400 psi
At peak, 7,000 people worked on the Liza Destiny conversion. Around 80 people work on the vessel during operation, and the FPSO has a capacity for 120 workers.
