Ezra’s subsea services division EMAS AMC has secured a contract with BHP Billiton for the Angostura phase 3 development offshore Trinidad and Tobago.

Under the contract, the company will provide services that include project management, fabrication, construction and installation of a 12in flowline.

The work also includes a complete subsea package, consisting of control umbilicals, as well as detailed engineering, construction and installation of the pipeline end manifold (PLEM) and inline sled (ILS) for the development.

"Offshore execution will take place using the Lewek Express subsea construction and reel lay vessel, and is currently scheduled for mid-2016."

According to EMAS, the Angostura phase 3 development is located 35km north-east of Trinidad and Tobago in the eastern Trinidadian sector of the Venezuela basin.

At present, EMAS’s Houston office is providing engineering and procurement services.

Fabrication of the subsea structures, as well as stalking and spooling of flowlines are to be performed at EMAS Marine Base facility in Ingleside, Texas.

Offshore execution will take place using the Lewek Express subsea construction and reel lay vessel, and is currently scheduled for mid-2016.

Ezra Group CEO and managing director Lionel Lee said: "This award is especially rewarding for EMAS AMC as it draws on our ability to provide the best overall solution through our full spectrum of one-stop-shop capabilities, including project management, detailed engineering, pipelay, subsea installation, fabrication, survey and commissioning."

Ezra recently announced the signing of a binding memorandum of understanding for Chiyoda to invest in EMAS to form a 50:50 joint venture EMAS Chiyoda Subsea.
