Aker Solutions awarded umbilicals contract offshore Mexico

Saipem has contracted Aker Solutions to supply umbilicals for the Pemex-operated Lakach deepwater natural gas field, offshore Mexico.  

Connecting Mexico's first subsea gas development to onshore processing facilities

Aker Solutions will deliver electro-hydraulic steel tube umbilicals of approximately 73 km (45 miles) that will help connect Mexico's first subsea gas development to onshore processing facilities. The field is located around 98 km (60 miles) southeast of Veracruz at depths of between 900 and 1200 m in the Gulf of Mexico. It is targeted to supply 400 million ft3/d.

"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.

The umbilicals will be manufactured in Mobile, Alabama, and the order will be completed in 3Q16. Aker Solutions is the market leader in subsea umbilicals, which are used to supply necessary controls and chemicals to subsea oil and gas wells, manifolds and systems requiring remote control.

The partners have chosen not to disclose the contract value.
