Pemex lets contract for Abkatun-A2 platform

Pemex Exploracion y Produccion has let a $454-million contract to McDermott International Inc. for the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of the Abkatun-A2 platform.

The platform will be installed in 124 ft of water in the Bay of Campeche and will provide replacement and expansion capabilities to the existing Ku-Maloob-Zaap, Cantarell, and Ayatsil facilities (OGJ Online, Jan. 5, 2015).

McDermott will manufacture the structures at its facility in Altamira, Tamaulipas state, Mexico. Engineering and procurement activities will begin immediately, with fabrication scheduled to begin late this year. Offshore activities are scheduled for 2018, with handover to Pemex in fourth quarter 2018.

McDermott is expected to use the Derrick Barge 50 and the Intermac 650, the world’s second-largest float-over installation vessel.
