Oilfield service company InterMoor has moored the first privately-operated oil rig to sit off the coast of Mexico since 1938.
InterMoor, a subsidiary of Acteon, was tasked with moor the semi-submersible ENSCO 8503 in the Bay of Campeche, offshore Mexico.
Houston-headquartered InterMoor provided Talos Energy with engineering services, mooring equipment, shorebase loadout services, and experienced personnel to carry out the job.
Tom Fulton, global president of InterMoor, said: “InterMoor is proud to be at the forefront of the new exploration cycle in offshore Mexico. These are important times for the region and this project shows that we are ready to help operators new to the area with their local needs.”
