US supermajor ExxonMobil is looking to implement a high-speed fibre optic transport service for its main Guyana offshore developments in an attempt to improve productivity and support remote operations.

According to a study recently submitted to Guyana’s environmental protection agency EPA, ExxonMobil plans to install up to 550 kilometres of submarine fibre optic cable linking onshore facilities in the capital Georgetown to a pair of floating production, storage and offloading vessels in the giant Liza field.

The project’s workscope includes construction, installation, operation and maintenance of the fibre optic cable infrastructure.
