Aker Solutions to supply umbilicals for Lakach field (Mexico)

Aker Solutions 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.

In October 2014, Mexico’s Pemex awarded Saipem an EPCI contract for the development of the Lakach field. The scope of work of the contract involves the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the system connecting the offshore field with the onshore gas conditioning plant.

Aker Solutions will deliver electro-hydraulic steel tube umbilicals of about 73 kilometers (45 miles) that will help connect Mexico’s first subsea gas development to onshore processing facilities. The field is located about 98 kilometres (60 miles) 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 Lakach field is Mexico’s first deepwater subsea development by Pemex and Aker Solutions is proud to deliver the first umbilical to the Mexican Gulf of Mexico,” said Marc Quenneville, head of Aker Solutions’ subsea business in North America.

According to Aker Solutions, the umbilicals will be manufactured in Mobile, Alabama, and the order will be completed in the third quarter of 2016.

The partners have chosen not to disclose the contract value.
