USA: Mustang Bags Detail Design for Chevron Jack & St. Malo Deepwater Facility


Mustang, a Wood Group company, has been selected by Chevron to perform detail design for topsides facilities for the Chevron Jack and St. Malo floating semi-submersible facility, to be located in approximately 7,000 feet of water in the Walker Ridge Area of the Gulf of Mexico.
