Craig Muir, Managing Director of Engineering and Consulting Services, commented: "I am delighted that Petrofac's Engineering and Consulting Services business has been selected to support such a significant project for PEMEX with this its first major deepwater development."

"PEMEX will benefit from the full breadth of Petrofac's specialist subsea pipeline consulting and engineering services in addition to our well management capabilities. We look forward to working closely with PEMEX on this significant project and further building Petrofac's presence in Mexico."

Petrofac's share price was down 0.68% to 1,460p at 10:49 on Monday.
