McDermott awarded $230 million contract for Pemex production platform
HOUSTON -- McDermott announced a letter of award for a turnkey contract for the PB-Litoral-A production platform for Pemex Exploracion y Produccion in the Litoral Tabasco Tsimin-Xux fields. The value is approximately $230 million and will be included in McDermott's fourth quarter 2012 backlog.
The PB-Litoral-A project scope includes front end engineering design, detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, load-out, sea fastening, transport, installation, hook-up, commissioning and start-up of an eight-legged 1,800-tonne jacket, 4,500-tonne topsides and 2,000 tonne of tripods, bridges and piles. The total weight of the facility is approximately 8,300 tonne. Engineering work is expected to begin in early 2013 by McDermott’s Houston and Chennai engineering offices, with fabrication at Altamira, Mexico, where at peak, more than 550 craft personnel are expected to be engaged on the project.
McDermott will carry out installation of the topsides by the float-over method using its Intermac 600 float-over barge, and the recently upgraded and improved McDermott Derrick Barge 50 will install key platform components and provide additional support. McDermott will also provide training to Pemex personnel for operation and maintenance of the facility once commissioned.
