McDermott cuts first steel for Abkatun-A2

US engineering and construction company, McDermott International, has cut first steel for the Abaktun-A2 platform project for Pemex in its industrial facility in Altamira, Mexico. McDermott on Friday posted a photo of the first steel being cut.

To remind, McDermott was awarded a $454 million contract for engineering, procurement, construction & installation (EPCI) of the Abkatun-A2 by Pemex back in June.

The contract entails the provision of a vertically integrated, turnkey EPCI solution for building and commissioning of the Abaktun-A2 platform and associated structures.

At the time of the signing, the platform was McDermott’s largest project in size and total value for Pemex.

The platform will be located in Mexico’s Bay of Campeche in 124 feet of water and will provide replacement and expansion capabilities to the existing Ku-Maloob-Zaap, Cantarell and Ayatsil facilities.

The entire scope of the production work will be completed in McDermott’s Altamira facility which is positioned as a free trade zone and provides fabrication services for the Gulf of Mexico and Americas.

Steel cutting ceremony marks the beginning of fabrication activities while offshore activities will begin in 2018. Handover to Pemex is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2018.
