The FPU will be designed for a water depth of approximately 8200 ft (2500 m) and will be located in the Trion Field, approximately 19 miles (30 km) south of the US/Mexico border and approximately 112 miles (180 km) off the Mexican coastline.
"We look forward to being a partner with BHP and Pemex in the establishment of the first deepwater oilfield development project in Mexico," said Mark Coscio, Senior Vice President for McDermott's North, Central and South America region.
McDermott will lead a single, integrated team to perform project management and execution planning.
"With integrated project management, engineering, procurement services and self-fabrication in our yards in Altamira, Mexico, and Batam, Indonesia—McDermott's globally integrated EPC project delivery capabilities will allow us to reduce risk and enhance certainty of delivery on the BHP Trion project," said Samik Mukherjee, Group Senior Vice President for Projects.
The scope of the FEED contract includes engineering tasks related to the configuration, sizing and analysis of the FPU, including topsides, hull, risers and mooring. McDermott was previously awarded and completed services under an initial pre-FEED contract.
