McDermott International has won a contract from BHP Petróleo Operaciones de México to carry out the preliminary front-end engineering design (pre-FEED) extension phase for a floating production unit (FPU) to be installed at the Trion oil field in the Mexican Gulf of Mexico.

The Trion field FPU will be installed in a water depth of around 8,200 feet.

The deep-water oil field is located nearly 19 miles, south of the US/Mexico border and about 112 miles from the Mexican coastline.

According to McDermott, the pre-FEED extension is anticipated to provide greater value for the Trion oil project by focusing on the streamlining of the design and execution strategy.

Mark Coscio – McDermott North, Central and South America region Senior Vice President said: “We look forward to building on our strong relationship with BHP and Pemex with this latest contract award for the next phase in the Trion Project for the Semi-Submersible FPU.

“We will work with the project to further develop the execution plan for Trion in order to optimize the design and pre-FEED scope for them.”

In March 2020, McDermott won the pre-FEED services contract for the Trion FPU. The scope of this contract included engineering tasks pertaining to the configuration, sizing and preliminary analysis of the floating production unit, which includes topsides, hull, risers, and mooring.

On the Pre-FEED extension, McDermott will work closely with Houston Offshore Engineering and Wood with the former to lead a single, integrated team to carry out project management, execution planning, and estimation services.

Houston Offshore Engineering and Wood will be engaged in engineering optimizations. McDermott’s fabrication yards across Batam, Indonesia, and Altamira, Mexico will provide technical support for fabrication and integration planning.

Currently, McDermott is supplying the subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF), transportation and installation (T&I) apart from pre-commissioning a jacket and topsides for BHP’s Ruby petroleum project offshore Trinidad and Tobago.
