Ezra Holdings wins more than $158.6m in contracts in Asia Pacific and West Africa

Singapore-listed offshore services provider Ezra Holdings has clinched subsea construction and offshore support contracts worth more than US$125 million (S$158.6 million) in total, including options.

The subsea projects are in West Africa and Asia and include a deepwater pipeline installation in the South China Sea and mooring repair work for a floating production, storage and offloading unit in West Africa, Ezra said on Wednesday.

Work on the projects is expected to begin by the end of this month.

Ezra's offshore support services division was also awarded contracts for offshore support work in Malaysia, Thailand and Australia.

"These are important wins for us as they strengthen our presence in West Africa and growing leadership in Asia," said Ezra's group chief executive and managing director Lionel Lee.

"The subsea project in the South China Sea is also a clear recognition of the deepwater pipelay capabilities of our subsea team and our key assets here in Asia," he added.

Ezra's order book currently stands at above US$2 billion.

Separately, the group's associated company EOC said it had won a US$100 million contract for the Lewek Conqueror, a hook up and maintenance accommodation barge, to perform work in South East Asia.
