US oilfield service firm McDermott International has won a pipeline installation contract with Mexico’s Pemex.
McDermott said work on the Ayatsil field, located 50 miles northwest of Ciudad del Carmen in the Bay of Campeche offshore Mexico, should be completed early next year.
McDermott’s operating center in Mexico City will perform project management and engineering.
It said the contract was worth somewhere between $1-$50 million.
Richard Heo, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America, said: “This award follows on the proven track record we have had in Mexico with Pemex – including the fabrication and installation of the Ayatsil-C platform and the fabrication and future installation of Abkatun.
“This opportunity enables us to demonstrate our subsea capabilities in offshore Mexico. We look forward to working closely with Pemex to successfully delivering this project with safety and quality at the forefront throughout the execution.”
