EMAS AMC, the subsea division of EMAS, a leading global offshore contractor and provider of integrated offshore solutions to the oil and gas (O&G) industry, today announced that it has finalised three contracts with Noble Energy worth a combined total of over US$300 million.
The scope of work includes engineering, procurement, construction and installation of subsea tie-backs for the Big Bend, Dantzler and Gunflint (announcement dated April 11, 2014, “Ezra Scores Award From Noble Energy For The Gunflint Project In The Gulf Of Mexico”) field developments in the US Gulf of Mexico.
The project management, engineering and procurement are well underway from EMAS AMC’s Houston office with fabrication of the 16 subsea structures and stalking and spooling of over 160 miles (258 km) of line pipe in progress at the recently upgraded EMAS Marine Base facility in Ingleside, Texas.
Offshore execution is scheduled for 2015, utilising five of EMAS AMC’s offshore construction vessels including the newbuild, ultra-high tension, deepwater, reel lay and heavy lift vessel the Lewek Constellation.
“Following the successful completion of the Tamar project, I am particularly grateful for the continued trust and confidence that the Noble Energy team has shown in our people and our capabilities. It is a testament of our ability in delivering operational excellence and results,” said Mr Lionel Lee, EMAS Group CEO and Managing Director.
“With our flagship vessel Lewek Constellation, we are helming the future of the subsea industry, and with her in operation, we will continue to drive our growth as a premier global subsea tie-back contractor.”
