ExxonMobil’s projects stood out among finalists BP’s Shah Deniz 2 and Eni’s Coral South FLNG. The world class Liza discovery was announced in May 2015. Liza Phase 1 achieved first oil in December 2019 and production got underway at Liza Phase 2 in February 2022. Both projects achieved first oil in record time, placing them among the fastest deepwater development ramp ups the industry has ever seen.

Dutch floater specialist SBM Offshore delivered both the Liza Destiny and Liza unity FPSOs, under budget and ahead of schedule.

According to the ITPC, “The development of the Liza project overcame various challenges, including entry into a new frontier basin, adverse weather conditions, and navigating through a global pandemic. Integration across all aspects of the projects was key to this achievement, with the concept of One Team embedded into team behaviors.”
