EMAS Amc was awarded a contract by Houston-based VAALCO Gabon (Etame) Inc., for the expansion of the Etame Marin Field Offshore Gabon in West Africa. The scope of work encompasses the EPIC of rigid pipelines along with the transportation and installation of flexible pipelines and two fixed production platforms.
This contract will see EMAS Amc’s new build flagship vessel, the Lewek Constellation, working alongside one of the division’s pipelay vessel, the Lewek Express, and is worth about US $120 million.
“The Etame Marin Project encompasses all of our core strengths including SURF, heavy lift, and rigid pipelay so this is a very exciting opportunity, said C.J. D’Cort, CEO, EMAS Amc.
The Lewek Constellation is a multi-lay offshore construction vessel with ultra deepwater pipelaying and lifting capabilities (3000mT crane).
Project management and engineering will commence immediately and will be managed from EMAS Amc’s Houston office. Offshore activities will commence in early 2014.
