McDermott International, Inc. has successfully completed the Ayatsil-B Drilling Platform for PEMEX Exploración y Producción in the Bay of Campeche Ayatsil field.
McDermott was awarded the contract in 2012 and provided engineering, procurement, fabrication, pre-commissioning, load-out and sea fastening of the Ayatsil-B eight-leg jacket and deck, weighing approximately 11,535 tonnes in water 115 meters deep.
“McDermott is proud to successfully deliver this jacket and deck to PEMEX,” said David Dickson, President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the project, more than 540 personnel at our Altamira yard worked safely to complete the structure for the growing Mexican offshore market.”
McDermott completed the engineering from its network of specialist in-house engineers in Houston and Mexico City, with fabrication from its yard in Altamira, Mexico.
McDermott is contracted to provide training for PEMEX personnel for operation and maintenance of the Ayatsil-B facility. The platform is one of four to be used, along with an FPSO, to develop heavy oil from the Ayatsil field in the Bay of Campeche.
