McDermott Delivers Abkatun-A2 Platform

Monday, October 28, 2019

McDermott International said it has completed and delivered the Abkatun-A2 production platform for customer PEMEX Exploracion y Produccion in Mexico's Bay of Campeche in the Gulf of Mexico.

"With substantial completion of the Abkatun-A2 Platform project successfully achieved, PEMEX is ready to begin commercial operations," said Mark Coscio, McDermott's Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America.

The 16,534-ton platform is installed in 38 meters water depth and will provide replacement and expansion capabilities to the existing Ku-Maloob-Zaap, Cantarell and Ayatsil facilities. The platform is rated to produce 220,000 barrels of oil per day and 150 million of standard cubic feet of gas per day.

McDermott said the Abkatun-A2 platform is its largest project in size and total value to date for PEMEX. Its work scope for the project included engineering, procurement, construction, transport, installation, hook up, commissioning and start-up.

McDermott performed fabrication for the Abkatun-A2 project at its Altamira, Mexico fabrication facility and used its Derrick Barge 50 and Intermac 650 vessels to transport and install the platform.

"The project demonstrates our ability to deliver a vertically integrated, turnkey EPCI solution to build and commission platforms and associated structures utilizing our project management, engineering and fabrication teams in Mexico," Coscio said.
