(EnergyAsia, November 4 2011, Friday) — Singapore’s Ezra Holdings said its subsea construction division EMAS AMC has secured a contract from BP Exploration & Production Inc to perform subsea work in the Atlantis field in Green Canyon Block 743 in the Gulf of Mexico.

The project scope consists of the installation and replacement of subsea equipment comprised of manifolds, pipeline end manifolds, jumpers and associated hardware in 6,800 feet of water, as well as assisting BP with complete commissioning and start-up activities.

EMAS AMC’s CEO, C. J. D’Cort, said: “This project award is in recognition of our expertise in the deep water subsea installation market.”

This is the second contract awarded by BP to EMAS AMC for work on the Atlantis field. The first project was completed in 2010 along with the installation of subsea hardware for BP’s Thunder Horse project.

EMAS AMC’s regional headquarters in Houston will execute the planning and installation activities for the BP project during the first half of 2012.

EMAS, a leading global offshore contractor providing construction, marine, production and well intervention services, is the operating brand for Ezra Holdings Limited. It operates globally with offices in 16 locations across five continents spanning Africa, the Americas, the Asia-Pacific and Europe.
