Ezra’s subsea division, EMAS AMC, has clinched several global contracts, including one for rigid pipelay on the Aviat field development in the UK North Sea, under the auspices of the frame agreement the company signed with Apache in the North Sea, bringing the total contract value to more than US$115 million, including options, for the group.
The subsea project scope of work for the Aviat field development includes project management, detailed engineering, procurement, and installation of 23.2 km rigid pipelines and 24 km umbilical via reel, flexible riser, spools, and structures as well as pre-commissioning. In project execution, EMAS AMC will utilise its latest spoolbase, EMAS Marine Base Gulen, located on the West coast of Norway, to fabricate the 24 km rigid pipeline, and its pipelay reel vessel, Lewek Express.
The project mix also includes engineering and offshore support work in West Africa for an oil major, which will be undertaken together with Ezra’s subsidiary company, EMAS Offshore Limited. Other subsea contract work includes ROV support services and High Voltage Alternate Current (HVAC) pull-ins.
In addition, EMAS Energy together with EMAS AMC will deploy the Lewek Centurion to undertake work in Asia, which includes subsea pipeline free span work, well plug and abandonments, slickline and nitrogen operations, well stimulation and pipeline pre-commissioning work for a variety of oil majors and national oil companies.
Lionel Lee, Ezra’s Group CEO and Managing Director, said: “EMAS AMC has the infrastructure, engineering capabilities and the vessel capacities for complex pipe lay, umbilical lay and subsea installation work. The Aviat project with Apache proves our position in the North Sea, and the opportunities arising from our frame agreement with them in the region.
“As a Group, we have also showcased our synergy with combination solutions from our different divisions to offer to the industry. I am pleased that our clients and partners continue to recognise our expertise and assets, and these wins will add to our global track record.”
