Pemex Installs Country's Largest Offshore Platform
Mexico's state oil company Pemex reported it installed the country's largest offshore platform in the Sonda offshore field in Campeche state on Friday.
The US$250mn, 250,000b/d-capacity platform, dubbed KU-S, is part of the Ku Maloob-Zaap (KMZ) project, Pemex said in a statement.
KMZ is Pemex's most important project under development, the statement said.
The platform will increase KMZ's crude production to 800,000b/d from 300,000b/d, which will help offset a drop at the Cantarell field, the statement said. Pemex expects gas output at KMZ to reach 330Mf3/d (9.35Mm3/d).
Local company Swecomex built the 10,000t platform at its Tuxpan facility in Veracruz state.
