Ezra Holdings Limited's subsea services division, EMAS AMC, has secured a construction contract with Apache Energy Limited in Australia valued in excess of approximately US$105 million.
The contractor and provider of integrated offshore solutions to the oil and gas industry said that the awarded scope of work includes project management, engineering, transportation and subsea installation of an electro-hydraulic steel lube umbilical, two heavy lift subsea manifolds, flying leads and jumpers as well as the procurement, fabrication, transportation and installation of riverless tie-in spools for Apache’s Julimar Development Project offshore Australia.
Project management and engineering will start immediately with offshore execution scheduled to start in quarter one 2016, utilising the heavy lift and multi-lay deep water offshore construction vessel vessel, the Lewek Constellation.
“This important award marks another significant milestone for EMAS AMC as we continue to strengthen Lewek Constellation’s project portfolio. I am thankful to Apache for providing EMAS AMC the opportunity to showcase our flagship vessel – Lewek Constellation in Australia.
"We are very pleased to be able to strengthen our business relationship with Apache as this new project award follows the recently secured multiyear North Sea frame agreement and the successfully completed installation works for the Coniston Field Development Project in Northwest Australia,” said Lionel Lee, Ezra’s group CEO and managing director.
“I am also extremely encouraged by the level of interest the Lewek Constellation has generated from the industry and we expect that she will continue to drive the subsea business forward with our work schedule extending well into 2016 and beyond.”
