Mexican company Eseasa Offshore has secured a contract from Woodside Energy to supply shore base facilities and services to support the $7.2bn (A$11bn) Trion oil and gas project offshore Mexico.

Under the contract, Eseasa will be responsible for shore base infrastructure, operations planning and management for vessel mooring, load and discharge, freight and material management and dedicated laydown and staging areas.

The company will provide a range of services from its shore base location on the Panuco River coastline.

Woodside Trion vice-president Stephane Drouaud said: “The award of the contract is a critical milestone as we continue to progress the Trion project toward first oil in 2028. We are very pleased to partner with Eseasa Offshore as the supplier of the full range of shore base facilities and services.

“The contract award to Eseasa, a Mexican owned and operated company, demonstrates the great capacity available in-country to support a world-class oil and gas project like Trion.

“It also reinforces Woodside’s commitment to investing locally and ensuring that the economic benefits of our investment in Trion are felt as broadly as possible across Mexican suppliers.”

Woodside owns a 60% stake in the project while Mexican state-owned oil company Pemex Exploración y Producción holds the remaining stake.

Earlier this year, Woodside secured field development plan (FDP) approval from Mexican regulator Comision Nacional de Hidrocarburos for the Trion project.

Due to commence production in 2028, the project aims to develop estimated oil and gas resources of 479 million barrels of oil equivalent (mboe).

The Trion oil field is due to be developed with an in-field floating production unit (FPU) with an oil production capacity of 100,000 barrels per day.
