Offshore staff

SINGAPORE – Marine Contracting has received an engineering, procurement, construction, and installation contract (EPCI) from Jord Oil & Gas B.V. to install an interconnecting bridge and tripod support structure for the Cantarell field in the Gulf of Mexico.

The bridge will connect PEMEX’s existing facilities to a jackup with compression facilities.

The award is part of Jord’s larger contract with Alher Oil & Gas S.A. de C.V.

Marine Contracting will be responsible for the engineering, design, construction and installation of the bridge and support structure. The support structure foundation will incorporate suction piles, designed to maintain location under design environmental conditions. Fabrication includes the installation of all required piping, pipe supports, walkways, ladders, and lighting, coating systems, insulation, cables and cable trays for the bridge.

The design of the structure allows for removal and relocation should the jackup and compression facilities need to be repositioned to a different offshore facility in support of PEMEX’s operational strategies.
