Singaporean EMAS enters several projects throughout the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Winning contracts totaling several hundred millions of dollars, EMAS will be collaborating with both Statoil and Det norske oljeselskap ASA. Major projects like Aasta Hansteen, Ivar Aasen and Smørbukk South Extension make up the contract portfolio.
By a multitude of contract winnings this spring, EMAS continuously enhances its status as a subsea player in the North Sea region. Established in 1992, their initial presence in the Asia Pacific has gradually led them to becoming a global contracting group in offshore and maritime services – now knocking on northern doors.
Following the major oil findings in the Ivar Aasen field, EMAS will provide engineering, procurement, construction and installation of three 10 km rigid pipelines in the Norwegian Sea for Det norske oljeselskap ASA. Worth more than US$165 million, the contract also includes options for continued work on the region, supplying subsea power cables connecting the nearby Edvard Grieg platform to Ivar Aasen. “This win is a further result of our continued efforts and commitment to strengthen relationships with some of the key oil and gas players in the North Sea region”, says CEO of EMAS AMC, C. J. D’Cort.
Additionally, Statoil has awarded the company with two major contracts. Firstly, they will provide transport and installation of subsea templates – two 4-slot and one single-slot – for the deepest offshore project in the region, the Aasta Hansteen field development.
All projects will be executed by the EMAS AMC division, established after the acquisition of Aker Marine Contractors AS (former subsidiary of OSX-listed Aker Solutions ASA).
