Petrofac Wins a Production Service Contract for Arenque

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 8/28/2012, Location: South America

Petrofac has confirmed that Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) has declared that it is the selected bidder for the integrated production service contract to develop the Arenque contract area, offshore Mexico.

The Arenque contract area is situated in the Gulf of Mexico, 30 kilometres from the city of Tampico. The Arenque field, which is currently producing around 5,000 barrels per day, has initial oil in place of approximately 1.2 billion barrels with a current recovery factor of around 11%. Under the contract, which runs for 30 years, Petrofac plans to improve the recovery factor and increase production from the core area of the field using horizontal wells and secondary recovery techniques. In addition there is considerable upside potential in the rest of the block. Petrofac will receive a tariff of US$7.90 for each barrel of incremental production and will be reimbursed for 75% of its development expenditure through a cost recovery mechanism. In the first two years, Petrofac will commit approximately US$50 million in capital expenditure.

Under the bidding guidelines stipulated by Pemex, the contract will generate an estimated backlog figure of US$0.5 billion.

This is the fourth integrated production service contract that Petrofac has been awarded in Mexico since August last year and confirms Petrofac’s commitment to the country. The other contracts are for the Magallanes and Santuario fields in Tabasco State, and the Panuco field in Veracruz State.

Andy Inglis, Chief Executive of Petrofac Integrated Energy Services, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded the Arenque contract, which further strengthens our relationship with Pemex and the commitment we have to Mexico to assist in the development of its oil and gas reserves. As well as today’s announcement we are also very pleased with the strong start we have made to field operations on Magallanes and Santuario, and the award with Schlumberger of the Panuco contract.”
