Dutch floater specialist SBM Offshore has selected yards to build the topsides modules for a newbuild floating production, storage and offloading vessel destined for ExxonMobil’s Yellowtail field development on the prolific Stabroek block offshore Guyana.

Several industry officials told Upstream that Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan (QMW), a joint venture between McDermott and China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), and Singapore-based fabricator Dyna-Mac Holdings will split the engineering, procurement and construction workscope of the topsides modules for the 250,000 barrels per day unit, dubbed the One Guyana FPSO.
