Maersk Supply Service has secured a 1.5 year contract with Blue Marine Group to support Pemex from subsea support vessel Maersk Installer.
Joining Maersk Implementer, the vessels will assist the national oil company in achieving its targets of increasing production and carrying out safe operations.
Delivered in November 2017 and May 2018 respectively, Maersk Installer and Maersk Implementer are some of the most modern vessels in their category. They will operate in the Bay of Campeche performing general support duties, well stimulation as well as inspection, maintenance and repair for Pemex’s platforms.
“The arrival of Maersk Installer is a significant stepping stone for Maersk Supply Service in Mexico. These two highly capable vessels allow us to expand our ambitions in the integrated solutions field locally, whether it is offering our customers well stimulation, subsea construction or FPSO installation or decommissioning,” says Managing Director for Maersk Supply Service in Mexico, Raymundo Piñones de la Cabada.
“We look forward to increasing our local footprint and contributing to offshore services in the region. We intend to positively impact the community and prepare for long term operations here in Mexico. As part of this vision, we ensure our local seafarers are trained in operating these advanced vessels and safety management systems. Our ambition is to bring in more vessels of different types to support growing demand for modern and highly specialised operations,” continues Raymundo Piñones de la Cabada.
Maersk Installer arrived in Mexico on 23 September and began its contract after completing all necessary inspections from Blue Marine and Pemex.
