Ezra Files Chapter 11 Protection with US Court

Singapore-listed offshore services player Ezra Holdings has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States together with its two entities EMAS IT Solutions and Ezra Marine Services.

The decision to file for Chapter 11 comes just weeks after Ezra’s subsea joint venture, EMAS Chiyoda-Subsea, also filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States and placed its Norway based wholly owned subsidiary, EMAS-AMC AS under members’ voluntary liquidation.

With this move, Ezra said it intends to optimize the scope and extent of the restructuring options available and to protect the interests of all stakeholders of the company (including its creditors and shareholders) from hostile actions that could harm the company and its stakeholders by diminishing the Group’s value.

According to the company’s chief restructuring officer, Robin Chiu, “Oversupply of offshore supply vessels along with the influx of newly built vessels resulting in low competitive charter rates compounded the financial difficulties of Ezra’s business divisions.”

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.
