Petrofac wins PEMEX deepwater drilling contract offshore Mexico

Petrofac's Engineering and Consulting Services business has won a contract by Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) for a deepwater drilling project offshore Mexico. The project was awarded in conjunction with Doris Engineering of Houston.

Under the contract, Petrofac will complete specialized technical assistance and supervision for a deepwater subsea well for the Lakach project, located in the Gulf of Mexico. The contract also includes construction, installation, commissioning, testing and startup of the well and infrastructure, as well as tie-ins to existing onshore facilities.

The project is scheduled for completion near the end of 2015, according to Petrofac.

"I am delighted that Petrofac's Engineering & Consulting Services business has been selected to support such a significant project for PEMEX with this its first major deepwater development," said Craig Muir, managing director of Petrofac. "PEMEX will benefit from the full breadth of Petrofac's specialist subsea pipeline consulting and engineering services in addition to our well management capabilities. We look forward to working closely with PEMEX on this significant project and further building Petrofac's presence in Mexico."
