Aker Solutions Signs Contract with Saipem for First Order Offshore Mexico

Aker Solutions announced Wednesday that it has won its first order for a project offshore Mexico, after securing a contract with Saipem to supply umbilicals for the Lakach field.

The company will deliver electro-hydraulic steel tube umbilicals of approximately 45 miles, which will help connect Mexico’s Lakach development to onshore processing facilities. The field is expected to supply 400 million cubic feet per day and is located around 60 miles southeast of Veracruz, at depths of between 3000 and 4000 feet, in the Gulf of Mexico.

Aker Solutions Head of Subsea Business in North America Marc Quenneville commented in a company statement:

"The Lakach field is Mexico's first deepwater subsea development by Pemex, and Aker Solutions is proud to deliver the first umbilical to the Mexican Gulf of Mexico."

The order will be completed in the third quarter of 2016, according to Aker. The contract value has not been disclosed.
