Last 24 January was carried out the load out of the module PBKUA-2

Last 24 January was carried out the load out of the production and compression platform module PBKUA-2 at Dragados Offshore Tampico’s yard in Tamaulipas (Mexico).
With the achievement of this milestone, Dragados Offshore demonstrated again to have a high level of human resources and facilities at its Yard in Mexico, which allows the fulfilment of these offshore huge projects with the maximum quality standards.
The manoeuvre consisted on the sliding of the 9.100 tons module along 245 metres, using four 200 tones jacks and two 70 tones jacks.
The platform PBKUA2 was constructed for the client PEMEX EXPLORACIÓN Y PRODUCCIÓN and Dragados performed the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning at the yard in a 21 months term.

The final location of the production and compression platform is the KU-MALOOB-ZAAP field in Campeche (Gulf of Mexico). The aim of the platform is pumping oil and compressing sour gas coming from wells.

PBKUA2 is made of 6 turbopumps for operation of oil, being able to operate 50 thousand barrels per day each one. It is equipped with 3 Booster turbocompressors with capacity to operate 72 million cubic foot per day each one and 2 turbocompressor of recovered vapour, dividers and other process equipments. It has also 3 turbogenerator of 2.5 MW each one, with capacity for supplying the production platform as well as the adjacent living quarter and production platforms. It is equipped with a control room, an electrical room, a laboratory and a tower crane.
The Project Team estimates the sail away of the module for next 10 February in order to start the installation in the Gulf of Mexico the 8th week of 2007.
