Offshore contractor Ezra has through its subsea services division, EMAS AMC, finalized a contract with BHP Billiton for the Angostura phase 3 development offshore Trinidad and Tobago in the eastern Trinidadian sector of the Venezuela basin.
The total scope of work includes the project management, fabrication, construction and installation of 12-inch flowline along with a complete subsea package comprised of control umbilicals and detailed engineering, construction and installation of the pipeline end manifold (PLEM) and inline sled (ILS) for the Angostura phase 3 field development located approximately 35 km northeast of Trinidad and Tobago.
According to Ezra, engineering and procurement are currently under way from EMAS AMC’s Houston office with fabrication of the subsea structures and stalking and spooling of flowlines to be carried out at EMAS Marine Base facility in Ingleside, Texas.
