The tender is broken into five lots, all of which entail supplying one self-elevating rig and providing maintenance. Contract timeframes will run 730-1,095 days depending on lot.
Although reference prices were not provided, PEP director Carlos Morales Gil previously said drilling equipment contracted three years ago at US$50,000-60,000 per day now costs US$120,000-150,000 per day.
The first two lots are to supply cantilever-type rigs capable of operating in minimum depths of 250ft (76m) and drilling a minimum of 20,000ft.
The three other lots also are to supply cantilever-type rigs capable of operating at a minimum depth of 250ft or 200ft in the case of mat-supported platforms. The first rig must have the capacity to drill to a minimum of 21,500ft, and the latter two to a minimum of 20,000ft.
Bidding will take place under the purchase chapters of free trade agreements signed by Mexico. Offers are due January 18 and a decision is expected in February.
