Highly Anticipated” Zama Field Offshore Mexico Reaches Major Milestone with DORIS FEED Contract Award

Partners Wintershall Dea, Pemex (operator), Talos Energy and Harbour Energy have awarded the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract for the development of the highly anticipated Zama oil field offshore Mexico to French engineering company DORIS.

The FEED work will be based on the scope of the Unit Development Plan approved by the Mexican National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) last year. It includes the design of two offshore platforms, 68 km of pipelines and cables, and a new onshore facility dedicated to the Zama project at the Dos Bocas Maritime Terminal in Paraiso, Tabasco.

The Zama Unit partnership also plans to minimize greenhouse gas intensity by using the best available technology, producing gas for onshore power generation, and making the best use of existing storage and transportation infrastructure.

DORIS will work with two Mexican engineering companies, NOMARNA and SUMMUM, to carry out the FEED work.

Zama is one of the largest shallow water discoveries in the world in the last 20 years, and was the first discovery made by an international consortium in Mexico in 2017. With estimated gross resources of 600 to 800 MMboe, Zama is expected to make a significant contribution to Mexico’s energy supply over the next 25 years, generating activity that will support the growth of the country’s energy sector and create a large number of jobs in the coming years.

The field is expected to produce up to 180,000 bopd at peak, representing approximately 10% of Mexico’s current total oil production.

Upon completion of these studies, the Zama Unit Partnership will proceed with the bidding process for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts, followed by the final investment decision.

“Zama is currently one of the most important energy projects in Mexico and we are very pleased to have reached the next milestone,” says Martin Jungbluth, Managing Director of Wintershall Dea in Mexico. “
