Petrofac Awarded Deepwater Project Offshore Mexico
Petrofac’s Engineering & Consulting Services business (ECS), in partnership with Doris Engineering of Houston (Doris), has been awarded a project management contract by Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) for specialised technical assistance and supervision for the construction, installation, commissioning, testing and start-up of deep-water subsea wells and infrastructure for the Lakach project. The scope will also involve drilling activities and tie-ins to existing onshore facilities. Initially involving around 25 engineers, based in Mexico and Houston, the project is scheduled to complete towards the end of 2015.
Craig Muir, Managing Director of ECS, commented: “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. 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.”
