Offshore Mexico Contract Goes to McDermott
McDermott has won its largest contract to date from ENI Mexico.

ENI Mexico has awarded McDermott International, Inc. an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for wellhead platform one (WHP1) to be installed in the Amoca field approximately 18 miles (30 kilometers) offshore Dos Bocas in southeast Mexico, McDermott reported Tuesday.

“This contract marks McDermott’s largest award to date with ENI Mexico and it builds on our previous success in delivering ENI’s projects with the highest levels of safety, quality and cost-efficiency,” Mark Coscio, McDermott’s senior vice president for North, Central and South America, said in a written statement emailed to Rigzone.

WHP1’s four-deck topsides will have two main decks and will weigh approximately 2,924 tons (2,653 metric tons) and the four-legged jacket and piles will weigh approximately 1,785 tons (1,620 metric tons), McDermott stated. Also, the company noted that it will perform the hookup, commissioning and startup of 12 wells. McDermott expects the jacket and piles to be ready for loadout by the end of the fourth quarter 2019 and the deck to be ready for loadout by the end of the second quarter 2020.

McDermott stated that engineering work should begin immediately for Amoca WHP1, an unmanned oil and gas production facility that includes eight producer wells and four water injection wells. The facility will be installed in the Gulf of Mexico, Contract Block 1 at an approximately 93-foot (28-meter) water depth and fluids will be exported to a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, the company added.

“For the Amoca Field project, we will provide world-class solutions through our engineering center in Mexico City and our fabrication facility in Altamira to perform the work,” said Coscio.
