Pemex Cancels Tender for Offshore Platform Revamp

Mexican state oil company Pemex's E&P division (PEP) has cancelled the tender for the revamp of offshore platforms and processing centers in the Gulf of Mexico and Ciudad del Carmen.

As of the third meeting to clarify project questions, five companies had acquired bidding rules. The companies were: Cotemar; Oceanografia; Servicios Maritimos de Campeche; CCC Fabricaciones y Construcciones; and CMT Campeche Construcciones, according to tender documents on federal procurement website Compranet.

Pemex did not specify why it cancelled the tender.

The project aimed to maintain or increase the security and efficiency of offshore installations themselves and production levels.

Works had been scheduled to begin sometime between December 2007 and August 2008 and run five years from the start date.
