Pemex awards Global Industries Akal-MB pipeline installations

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Mar. 20 -- Pemex Exploration & Production Co. has signed a letter of intent to award Global Offshore Mexico S de RL de CV a $40 million contract to install three oil and gas pipelines linking production platforms in Akal oil field off Mexico. The Akal-MB development project is in the Cantarell complex of fields in the Bay of Campeche about 80 km off the Yucatan Peninsula (see maps OGJ, Aug. 27, 2001, p. 54).

Global will use its 400-ft Shawnee pipelay-derrick barge to install, in 165 ft of water, a 12-in. gas pipeline from Akal BN to Akal-MB and two 24-in. two-phase oil-gas pipelines—one from Akal-MB to Akal-B and one from Akal-MB to Akal-M. Global's Titan 2 vessel will perform hook-up activities for the project that is scheduled to commence later this spring.

The contractor is a subsidiary of Carlyss, La.-based Global Industries Ltd.
