The Malaysian company used its offshore construction vessel, Sapura 3500 for the installation of the topside. Sapura did not provide the exact date of the, but the MarineTraffic data show the vessel is still in the waters offshore Paraiso, Mexico.

The works are done as part of a contract awarded by Pan American's subsidiary Hokchi Energy to Sapura Energy's engineering and construction division.

Hokchi Energy approved the $2.5 billion plan for the development of the field in May 2018.
