HOUSTON, June 1 -- Pemex EP let a contract to McDermott International Inc. for the procurement, construction, and installation of three oil and gas pipelines of between 8 and 20 in. OD in Mexico’s Bay of Campeche.

McDermott expects to begin pipeline installation engineering in this year’s second quarter, with subsequent fabrication of the risers, clamps and guards, subsea tie-in assembly, and additional platform piping and structural items at McDermott’s Altamira fabrication facility in Altamira, Mexico. McDermott’s DB16 will perform the installation, with completion expected by yearend.

The pipelines will extend in roughly 170 ft of water from the Kambesah Wells Recoverer Structure to the Kutz TA platform and the Ixtoc-A platform.

The more than $50 million contract will be included in McDermott’s second-quarter backlog.
