“This contract marks McDermott’s largest award to date with ENI México and it builds on our previous success in delivering ENI’s projects with the highest levels of safety, quality and cost-efficiency,” said Mark Coscio, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America. “For the Amoca Field project, we will provide word-class solutions through our engineering center in Mexico City and our fabrication facility in Altamira to perform the work.”
