M2 Subsea and Frontera Offshore have joined forces to deliver remedial pipeline work in the Ku-Maloob-Zaap (KMZ) oilfield, 65 miles north east of Cuidad del Carmen (Mexico).

This project is M2 Subsea’s first contract in the Gulf of Mexico region. It will see M2 Subsea’s personnel on-board Frontera Offshore’s chartered multipurpose support vessel (MPSV) Tehuana, to facilitate pre and post lay surveys for Frontera Offshore.

The survey work will be carried out along a 7.5 km section of the KMZ-94 pipeline to be stabilised for Mexican pipeline contractor, Permaducto (a subsidiary of Grupo Protexa).

Two Triton work class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) will be deployed from the MPSV Tehuana to deliver the survey services, with 277 mattresses being installed at a depth of approximately 250 ft.

M2 Subsea’s CEO, Mike Arnold, said: “Our reputation as a global ROV services company is steadily growing. We are fully focused on developing and demonstrating this further through safe, well executed, value adding project delivery throughout our client base. This, together with our flexible, low cost model, augments our overall goal to become one of the world’s leading independent ROV project management and execution companies.”

“The Frontera Offshore contract demonstrates our willingness and desire to collaborate with other like-minded companies in order to provide strong, knowledgeable partnerships so clients feel comfortable working within region.”

Brad McNeill, CEO of Frontera Offshore, said: “Frontera is pleased to have been awarded this project, and especially to be collaborating with M2 Subsea for a successful campaign. This is a big step toward our goal of becoming a leading subsea contractor in the sector.”
