GUYANA – EXXONMOBIL expects to produce 120,000 barrels of oil per day by September, as final commission to its gas compressor system is ongoing.
Guyana Chronicles reported that the oil giant was producing between 80,000 to 90,000 barrels of oil per day in the last month while re-injecting 85 per cent of the produced gas.
On Wednesday, President of ExxonMobil Guyana, Alistair Routledge said they were working on commissioning the flash gas compressor.
This is used in oil handling facilities to compress gas that is “flashed” from a hydrocarbon liquid when the liquid flows from a higher pressure to a lower pressure separator.
Routledge said ExxonMobil’s team offshore is working day and night to arrive at the “pilot flare” level of operation whereby minor flaring would be conducted only when absolutely necessary.
