Singapore-based subsea contractor EMAS AMC announced today the winning of a subsea construction contract to support Apache Energy’s Julimar Development project offshore northwest Australia.

The Julimar natural gas field is located approximately 180 kilometres west-northwest of the iron ore export hub of Dampier in Western Australia and will eventually be tied in to Chevron’s Wheatstone platform once fully constructed.

According to EMAS AMC’s statement today, the contract is valued in excess of A$130 million (USD $105 million) and includes project management, engineering, transportation and subsea installation of an electro-hydraulic steel tube umbilical, two heavy lift subsea manifolds, flying leads and jumpers as well as the procurement, fabrication, transportation and installation of diverless tie-in spools.

The offshore portion of the contract will be fulfilled utilizing EMAS’ heavy lift and multi-lay deep water offshore construction vessel, the Lewek Constellation beginning in 1Q 2016. In the meantime, the company notes the project management and engineering will commence immediately.

Lionel Lee, Group CEO and Managing Director of parent company Ezra Holdings commented on the award:

“This important award marks another significant milestone for EMAS AMC as we continue to strengthen Lewek Constellation’s project portfolio. I am thankful to Apache for providing EMAS AMC the opportunity to showcase our flagship vessel – Lewek Constellation in Australia. We are very pleased to be able to strengthen our business relationship with Apache as this new project award follows the recently secured multiyear North Sea frame agreement and the successfully completed installation works for the Coniston Field development Project in Northwest Australia.”
