IRVING, Texas -- Pemex Exploration and Production has awarded ICA Fluor a $51 million contract for the construction of two lightweight offshore platforms for the Cantarell production field in the Mexican sector of the Gulf of Mexico.

ICA Fluor and its subsidiary Industria del Hierro will be responsible for the procurement, construction, testing, and load out of the wellhead recovery structures. The new offshore platforms will be connected to the existing Akal-R and Akal-L production platforms.

The additional infrastructure will help Pemex maintain heavy oil and associated gas production levels at the Cantarell field and will help to mitigate the impact of crude oil decrease at this reservoir.
