Heerema to Install Five Platforms for Pemex

Heerema Marine Contractors has officially received from Pemex the formal letter of decision to contract HMC for the installation of five platforms and various jackets.

The project is located in the region "Marina Noreste" in the Bay of Campeche and includes the installation of drilling platforms SIHIL-A, AKAL-Q, and AKAL-W; 1 production platform (PB-KU-M), 1 living quarter platform (HA-KU-M), and 3 production jackets (PB-KU-S, PB-KU-A2, and PB-KU-H).

The installation of the platforms will take place during the first three quarters of 2006. The Hermod will work on this project.

Our project team will soon mobilize to Villa Hermosa to prepare our Mexican office. This project will be the first direct contract between Pemex and Heerema.

"HMC is very pleased to have been awarded this significant contract which expands our important relationship with Pemex and solidifies our growth strategy in this very important market," says Steve Preston, director Sales and Business Development.
