Offshore Rig Inspection Tender Attracts 10
Ten companies had acquired bidding rules for the structural inspection of offshore rigs in Mexico's Sonda de Campeche and northern region as of the eighth and final question-and-answer session for the project tender.
Mexican state oil company Pemex's E&P subsidiary (PEP) launched the tender.
The companies include: Constructora Subacuatica Diavaz; Subtec; Condux; Oceanografía; Construcciones Integrales del Carmen; Logística and Servicios y Proyectos Offshore de Mexico; Leco Marine; Cotemar; Instalaciones Electromecanicas Civilies y Electricas; Constructora y Prestadora de Servicios Tecnicos, according to federal procurement website Compranet.
Bids are scheduled to be received on September 10.
More than 50% of PEP's installations are in the last third of their life expectancy, according to bidding documents.
"As a result, in the current and next few years, inspection and maintenance works of PEP's infrastructure will be indispensable in reaching goals for the extraction of hydrocarbons with acceptable risk levels," according to the Compranet posting.
Some 32.4mn pesos (US$2.94mn) and US$5.63mn have been allotted for the project in the first budgetary year.
Works are expected to take three years to complete.
