TMC will provide a large-capacity marine compressed air system including compressors for control and service air on board the FPSO. TMC will manufacture and assemble the equipment in Europe.

The FPSO will have a topside designed to produce approximately 250,000 bpd and will have associated gas treatment capacity of 540 MMcfd, water injection capacity of 350,000 bpd and produced water capacity of 300,000 bpd.

FPSO Errea Wittu will be stationed on ExxonMobil’s Uaru development in the prolific Stabroek block, roughly 200 km offshore Guyana.

“Our compressors have been developed solely for marine and offshore use. They are not land-based compressors that have been marinized. We believe this enables the most robust and reliable equipment, which is essential when you are operating it on an FSPO offshore,” says Hans Petter Tanum, TMC's director of sales and business development.

Offshore Frontier Solutions Pte. Ltd., a MODEC Group company, is responsible for the engineering, procurement, and construction of the FPSO based on MODEC’s M350TM newbuild hull.
