McDermott International, the offshore oil and gas engineering and construction firm, has been contracted by PEMEX, Mexico’s state controlled oil giant, to install the offshore jacket, deck and piles for the Ayatsil-A drilling platform in the Ayatsil field, Bay of Campeche, Gulf of Mexico. 

The project will involve the Intermac 600 launch of the 8,400 jacket. Furthermore, the heavy-lift Derrick Barge 50 will complete the installation of the jacket, a 3,400 ton deck and other platform components in 400 feet water depth. 

PEMEX’s Ayastill field is the largest discovery for the organisation to date and is expected to boost production for the country by 150,000 bbl/d of oil.
