Emas Chiyoda Subsea in Bankruptcy Filing

Emas Chiyoda Subsea (ECS) has filed voluntary petitions for reorganisation under chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to facilitate the company’s financial and operational restructuring.

In connection with the filing, ECS has received a commitment on an up to US$90 million financing facility from Chiyoda Corporation and Subsea 7. Subject to bankruptcy court approval, the financing will be made available to support the company’s continuing business operations, minimise disruption to its projects and make necessary operational changes.

According to the company, it has an order book of over US$1 billion, however, the start dates of many of the projects remain in flux, affecting utilisation levels and negatively impacting financial performance.

“The company believes that this court process is in the best interest of all of its stakeholders, resulting in value creation and a sustainable capital structure. This difficult but important step will provide for a transparent restructuring of the company under the supervision of the Bankruptcy Court,” ECS said in a press release.

Japan’s ECS player Chiyoda and Ezra’s subsea service business EMAS AMC launched a 50:50 joint venture Emas Chiyoda Subsea in April last year, following a binding memorandum of understanding in August 2015.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
