Ezra to Install 10 Pipelines, 3 Platforms for Chevron in Gulf of Thailand
Singapore-listed Ezra Holdings Limited (Ezra or the Group), a leading contractor and provider of integrated offshore solutions to the oil and gas industry, disclosed Tuesday that the Group’s Subsea Services division, EMAS AMC, has achieved the significant milestone of installing 50 platforms for Chevron in the Gulf of Thailand.
Under a multi-year contract that commenced in 2011, EMAS AMC has also successfully laid 233 miles (376 kilometers) of subsea pipes utilizing the construction vessel Lewek Champion, a dyanmic positioning 2 (DP2) rigid pipe laying vessel with heavy lift capabilities. Chevron has since extended the contract to 2015 with a further option thereafter.
In 2014, EMAS AMC is expected to install 25 pipelines and 10 platforms of which 15 and 7, respectively, have already been completed.
“I am extremely pleased that EMAS AMC has been able to reach this significant operational milestone,” said Lionel Lee, Ezra’s Group CEO and managing director.
“As a company we are grateful to Chevron for giving us the continued opportunity to demonstrate our robust capabilities. The duration of our contract and safety record with Chevron is a testament of how we have progressed into an established offshore construction contractor in Asia-Pacific.”
The Lewek Champion has, in addition, received several noteworthy HSE awards from Chevron during this campaign, one for zero recordable incidents in 2011, one for reliability and performance in 2011, and also the Outstanding Crew Award in 2011 and 2013.
