Ezra Holdings’ subsea services division, EMAS AMC, has finalised three contracts with Noble Energy valued collectively at over US$300 million.
The scope of work includes engineering, procurement, construction and installation of subsea tie-backs for the Big Bend, Dantzler and Gunflint field developments in the US Gulf of Mexico.
The project management, engineering and procurement are already well underway from EMAS AMC’s Houston office with fabrication of the 16 subsea structures, and stalking and spooling of over 160 miles (258 km) of line pipe, in progress at the recently upgraded EMAS Marine Spool Base facility in Ingleside, Texas.
Offshore execution is scheduled for 2015, utilising five EMAS AMC offshore construction vessels including the newbuild, ultra-high tension, deepwater reel lay and heavy lift vessel, the Lewek Constellation.
“Following the successful completion of the Tamar project, I am particularly grateful for the continued trust and confidence that the Noble Energy team has shown in our people and our capabilities. It is a testament of our ability in delivering operational excellence and results,” said Lionel Lee, Ezra’s Group CEO and Managing Director.
“With our flagship vessel Lewek Constellation, we are helming the future of the subsea industry, and with her in operation, we will continue to drive our growth as a premier global subsea tie-back contractor.”
Now finalised as a contract, EMAS AMC had previously announced a signed Letter of Agreement with Noble Energy to perform the offshore installation of pipelines, umbilicals and ancillary equipment for the Gunflint Project in the Gulf of Mexico.
