Telford Offshore has secured a new topsides, subsea and accommodation support services contract from Protexa in the Gulf of Mexico.

The contract involves the deployment of Telford 31, a DP3 multi-purpose offshore construction vessel at the Bay of Campeche.

The project, located at a water depth of around 40m-70m, will use Telford 31 at Kab-C, PB-Litoral-T, PP-Maloob-B and D platforms situated in Pemex‘s Litoral de Tabasco and Ku-Maloob-Zaap oilfields.

The contract started earlier this month and will continue until October this year.

Around 300 people will be accommodated onboard throughout the course of the project.

Telford Offshore chief operating officer Duncan MacPherson said: “We are very pleased for the repeated confidence of Protexa in our teams and in the versatility of our fleet of modern DP3 vessels.
