Australian player BHP has selected Paris-based Doris for the next phase of SURF (subsea umbilicals risers and flowlines) FEED scope of work on the Trion field in the Mexican sector of the Gulf of Mexico.
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 an oil discovery announced in January 2019. It also represented the first well drilled by an international operator in the Mexican deepwater area.
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.
