Exxon considering technical upgrades to faulty equipment

Engineers working on Exxon’s oil platform compressor which malfunctioned again last month are considering technical recommendations for upgrades, as flaring offshore continues and the company again assured all was being done to swiftly remedy the issue.

“Technical experts in Germany continue to assess operating data and inspection findings in order to define the required scope of repairs to the compressor and silencer. This process also includes consideration of technical recommendations for any potential upgrades to the equipment,” ExxonMobil’s Government and Public Affairs representative Janelle Persaud yesterday said as she provided an update.

 “Over the last several days, the team on the FPSO [floating production storage and offloading unit] has completed visual inspection of piping and pipe supports.  At the workshop in Germany, mechanical rework of the compressor casing has been undertaken. ExxonMobil Guyana remains committed to working with the vessel’s owner SBM Offshore and the equipment manufacturer MAN Energy Solutions to fix the issue as quickly as possible,” she added.

Guyana Diaspora Online Forum

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK.  Our Blog and Newsletter  would not only carry  articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections.

It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana.  This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000.  Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s.  The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating.  We hope this changes, and soon.

Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren.  The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly.  This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country.  Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.

This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines.  As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
