Umuroa contract

Following an arduous tender process, EM&I Australia were pleased this week to receive formal notification of a contract award from BW Offshore, for a frame agreement to supply conventional and specialised NDT services on the Umuroa FPSO.

EM&I have developed strong relationships with the Umuroa team, located in New Plymouth on the west coast of New Zealand’s North Island, built on an open approach, and excellent reputation for safe and professional work-scope execution.

This credible performance is evidenced in our FPAL reports over the last three years, and has been further cemented by a number of testimonials from BW Offshore.

EM&I general manager Asia Pacific Stephen Blair commented: "This contract award follows significant negotiations with both BW Offshore, and our proposed technicians, in order to agree competitive labour rates while maintaining an acceptable level of margin.

"It demonstrates that we remain focussed in competing hard to secure long-term frame agreements, despite the challenging market conditions. Thanks must go to the wider EM&I network, who contributed to and supported our bid."
