EMAS AMC Begins Work on Etame Marin Field Expansion

EMAS AMC, the subsea services unit of offshore contractor EMAS, clinched a contract from VAALCO Gabon (Etame) Inc. for the expansion of the Etame Marin field off Gabon, West Africa.

The workscope covers the engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning (EPIC) of rigid pipelines along with the transportation and installation of flexible pipelines and two fixed production platforms.

Under the $120 million contract, EMAS AMC’s newbuild vessel, the Lewek Constellation, will work alongside the Lewek Express pipelay vessel. The contract was part of the $505 million of new projects reported by the company in July, when it was awarded a letter of intent for the project.

“We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this significant project from VAALCO for their Etame Marin Field Expansion Project in West Africa. The Lewek Constellation is an important asset for us to drive our business growth forward. As such, we are very encouraged to receive our first contract for the Lewek Constellation well in advance of its completion next year," C.J. D’Cort, CEO, EMAS AMC, said in a company release.

“The Etame Marin Project encompasses all of our core strengths including SURF (subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines), heavy lift, and rigid pipelay so this is a very exciting opportunity,” D'Cort added.

EMAS AMC's office in Houston, United States, will commence project management and engineering immediately, while offshore activities will begin in early 2014.
