The platform separates the liquids and compresses 250MMscf/D of gas for Pemex Exploration and Production's North East Marine Region.

Required overhauls of the PGT 25 turbine/compressor packages will be performed by TransCanada Turbines, a joint venture between Wood Group and TransCanada Pipelines.

"The AKAL GC platform is an important investment for CSCC, and our primary goal is to ensure the delivery of first-class service to Pemex Exploración y Producción," stated Shinji Ishida, general director of CSCC.

"We are delighted to have won this contract, which represents a significant step in the development of our O&M business in Mexico," said Derek Blackwood, president - Americas, for Wood Group Engineering and Production Facilities. "Wood Group's proven performance in Latin America demonstrates our ability to safely operate and maintain facilities to maximum efficiency and availability."
