The award follows a pree-FEED work Doris secured in January last year.

The Trion field encompasses an area of 1,285 square kilometres at a water depth of approximately 2500 metres.

BHP drilled the first appraisal well on Trion in late 2018, which resulted in anĀ oil discovery announced in January 2019. It also represented the first well drilled by an international operator in the Mexican deepwater area.

The company is considering a semi-sub floating production unit (FPU) for the Trion field and has hired McDermott to carry out the preliminary pre-FEED job, while DNV will verify the project.

BHP is the operator holding a 60 per cent interest in the development with non-operating partner Pemex who holds a 40 per cent interest.
