EMAS Offshore Limited, an offshore services provider, offering offshore support, accommodation, construction and production services to the oil and gas industry, has said that it has secured a contract valued at more than $30 million, including options.

This contract, it said, was part of a larger project awarded to EMAS AMC, the Subsea Services division of Ezra Holdings Limited for the charter of multiple vessels to an oil major in West Africa, and was awarded following a competitive tender process.

The company explained that under the job scope, four of EMAS Offshore’s marine vessels, including an Accommodation Barge, PSV (Platform Supply Vessel) and AHTSes (Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessels), will be chartered to EMAS AMC, to provide accommodation, anchor handling, towing, supplying and other support services.

The company said that this would allow EMAS Offshore to participate in a major Maintenance, Modifications and Operations (MMO) project, noting that the average contract duration for the contract is approximately 1.3 years (including options) and work is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of this year.

EMAS Offshore’s CEO, Jon Dunstan, said: “We have identified West Africa as a target region for our growth and I am delighted to see that strategy coming to fruition. Moreover, we see this win as an opportunity to showcase the synergy between EMAS AMC and EMAS Offshore to create even more value for our clients.”
