French engineering company Doris said it has been awarded a contract by Repsol for subsea concept select work on the deep-water Block 29 oil development in Mexico.

Doris said the contract was for concept engineering on the subsea production system (SPS) and subsea umbilical, riser and flowline (SURF) requirements for Block 29, which hosts the Polok and Chinwol discoveries.

Block 29 is located in the Salina basin in the Gulf of Mexico, 88 kilometres from the state of Tabasco.
