EMAS’ subsea division, EMAS AMC, has secured a subsea construction contract with Apache Energy Limited in Australia valued in excess of A$130 million ($105 million).
The awarded scope of work includes project management, engineering, transportation and subsea installation of an electro-hydraulic steel tube umbilical, two heavy lift subsea manifolds, flying leads and jumpers as well as the procurement, fabrication, transportation and installation of diverless tie-in spools for Apache’s Julimar Development Project offshore Australia.
According to EMAS, project management and engineering is to start immediately with offshore execution scheduled to start in 1Q2016, utilising the heavy lift and multi-lay deep water offshore construction vessel, the Lewek Constellation.
“This important award marks another significant milestone for EMAS AMC as we continue to strengthen Lewek Constellation’s project portfolio. I am thankful to Apache for providing EMAS AMC the opportunity to showcase our flagship vessel – Lewek Constellation in Australia.
“We are very pleased to be able to strengthen our business relationship with Apache as this new project award follows the recently secured multi-year North Sea frame agreement and the successfully completed installation works for the Coniston Field Development Project in Northwest Australia” said Lionel Lee, Ezra’s Group CEO and Managing Director.
“I am also extremely encouraged by the level of interest the Lewek Constellation has generated from the industry and we expect that she will continue to drive the subsea business forward with our work schedule extending well into 2016 and beyond.”
