Ezra CEO: EMAS AMC Order Backlog Will Hold on Subsea Tie-Back Demand
Ezra's CEO is upbeat about prospects for its unit EMAS AMC as demand for subsea tie-back remains strong.

Singapore-listed Ezra Holdings’ group CEO, Lionel Lee is optimistic the group’s subsea unit, EMAS AMC, with an active tender book boosted by resilient subsea tie-back demand, would be well-placed to maintain its $1 billion order backlog through 2015.

EMAS AMC has $10 billion worth of contracts in its bid pipeline, with subsea tie-backs accounting for a sizeable percentage of its outstanding tenders on hand, Lee said at a second quarter group results briefing Tuesday.
