MEXICAN JOB FOR AQUALIS OFFSHORE
Aqualis Offshore has been contracted by Perforadora Mexico to support with the transportation and installation of a platform rig for a fixed platform offshore Mexico.
Under the contract, Aqualis Offshore will monitor and document the sequence for rig-down, transportation and offshore installation of the Veracruz platform rig. The drill rig is currently being fabricated at the Lone Star yard in Baytown, Texas.
The 4,008 tonne Veracruz modular platform rig will be installed on the Ayasil A fixed platform, which is located offshore Mexico and operated by Pemex.
The drill rig is made up of approximately 108 individual modules ranging from 10 tonnes to 147 tonnes.
Following assembly, hook-up and commissioning at the yard, the platform is taken apart and shipped in modules on barges to the Ayasil A platform, where the modules and associated items are lifted onto the platform and reconnected.
Aqualis Offshore is managing the project from its office in Mexico City, supported by the company’s office in Houston, Texas.
