The video above shows preparation and setup of the Ayatsil-C jacket in the Bay of Campeche, Mexico, by McDermott team.
McDermott secured the contract for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the jacket from Pemex in 2015.
The contract is the fourth one McDermott received for the Ayatsil field development project, the company noted in an earlier press statement.
The work was carried out by McDermott’s transportation and launch barge, Intermac 600, and heavy-lift Derrick Barge 50 vessel.
The Ayatsil field represents the largest discovery for Pemex to date. Pemex has said it plans to develop Ayatsil field with as many as four platforms and adjacent Tekel heavy oil field with one platform, all tied to a floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel.
