Mexico’s upcoming Trion project passes key milestone

MEXICO CITY, February 15, 2024 – Woodside Energy has received government approval of its social impact assessment for its offshore Trion project in Mexico, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

The Trion field is located around 180 kilometres from the Mexican coastline in water depths of around 2,500 metres.

The USD 7.2-billion project will involve an FPU with a production capacity of 100,000 bopd connected to an FSO vessel with a capacity of 950,000 bopd.

Up to 24 wells are planned in the project’s life cycle, with 18 planned in the initial phase.


The field is expected to contain proven and probable reserves of 479 million boe.

First oil is expected in 2028, marking Mexico’s first deepwater production.

Woodside Energy holds an operating 60% stake in the development alongside Mexico’s state-owned Pemex.

The operator made its FID on the project in June 2023, with Mexican authorities sanctioning the project in August 2023.

In October 2023, Woodside Energy chose TechnipFMC to supply infield flowlines and jumpers for the project.
