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.
