McDermott International, Inc. yesterday announced the award of a contract by ENI México for engineering, procurement and construction of wellhead platform one (WHP1) to be installed in the Amoca field, located approximately 18 miles (30 km) offshore Dos Bocas in southeast Mexico.

The four-deck topsides will have two main decks and will weigh approximately 2924 t (2653 metric t). The four-legged jacket and piles will weigh approximately 1785 t (1620 metric t). McDermott will perform the hookup, commissioning and startup of 12 wells. The jacket and piles are scheduled to be ready for loadout by the end of 4Q19 while the deck is expected to be ready for loadout by the end of 2Q20.

"This contract marks McDermott's largest award to date with ENI México and it builds on our previous success in delivering ENI's projects with the highest levels of safety, quality and cost-efficiency," said Mark Coscio, McDermott's Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America. "For the Amoca Field project, we will provide word-class solutions through our engineering centre in Mexico City and our fabrication facility in Altamira to perform the work."

The engineering work is expected to begin immediately, and the contract will be reflected in McDermott's 2Q19 backlog.

The Amoca WHP1 is an unmanned oil and gas production facility that includes eight producer wells and four water injection wells. WHP1 will be installed in the Gulf of Mexico, Contract Block 1 at an approximate water depth of 93 ft (28 m). Fluids will be exported to a floating production, storage and offloading vessel.
