Aker Solutions said it has won its first order for a project offshore Mexico as it secured a contract from Saipem to supply umbilicals for the Pemex-operated Lakach deepwater natural gas field.
Aker Solutions will deliver electro-hydraulic steel tube umbilicals of about 73 kilometers that will help connect Mexico’s first subsea gas development to onshore processing facilities. The field is located about 98 kilometres southeast of Veracruz at depths of between 900 and 1,200 meters in the Gulf of Mexico. It is targeted to supply 400 million standard cubic feet per day, the company said in a statement.
The umbilicals will be manufactured in Mobile, Alabama, and the order will be completed in the third quarter of 2016. The contract value has not been disclosed.
