June 18th, 2001. Dragados Offshore, member of the Dragados Group, has been awarded a contract to build a platform to extract, compress and process gas in the Gulf of Mexico for the Pemex Group. With a budget of 208.38 million euros (34,671 million pesetas) and weighing 15,000 tons, it will be one of the largest platforms in the Cantarell-Sonda Campeche field.

This new platform will be interconnected with several structures currently in operation in the field. Work will start in July and the period for completion and starting production is 720 days.

Dragados Offshore will build the platform's deck at its yard in Puerto Real, Spain, while the jacket will be built at the installations of the Mexican company CCC Fabricaciones y Construcciones, Dragados Offshore's partner in this project.

The contract also includes the construction engineering, materials and equipment supply, construction, loading, tying up, shipping, installation, testing and commissioning of the platform.

This is the third contract that the Dragados Group has signed with Pemex this year for the Cantarell Field. The first was a turn-key project for a 1,100 ton platform with living quarters and a connection bridge with a budget of 39.07 million euros (6,500 million pesetas).

The Dragados Group companies SEI, Intecsa Uhde and Dragados Offshore also contracted with Pemex a job to automate, adapt and update the AKAL-G and Akal-GR platforms for 38.03 million euros (6,327 million pesetas).

In the Cantarell Field, Dragados Offshore is currently putting another gas compression and processing platform into operation, the Akal GC, for Pemex.
The increase in the offshore backlog confirms the Dragados Group's optimistic expectations for this activity. Dragados Offshore is the only Spanish company specialized in offshore constructions. Among the large projects completed in recent years are the Britannia jacket, the largest one built in their yard in Cadiz to date,158 m high and 21.000 Tn and the 49 deck elements (6.8 km total length) for the Oresund Bridge that joins Denmark and Sweden in the North Sea.
