SINGAPORE -- Noble Energy has contracted EMAS AMC for a subsea spread for the Tamar deepwater development offshore Israel.

Under the $88-million contract, EMAS AMC will install around 330 km (205 mi) of umbilicals and subsea distribution equipment, and deliver subsea suction piles and jumpers.

The umbilicals and subsea distribution equipment are being manufactured by the Aker Solutions Group in Mobile, Alabama. EMAS’ parent company Ezra and Aker Solutions have started a five-year cooperation agreement in connection with the recently completed acquisition of Aker Marine Contractors.

The Tamar project is an example of a bundled solution for subsea equipment that the two parties had envisaged.

EMAS also has a letter of award/intent for a project worth up to $32 million from an unnamed major oil company. This involves providing subsea support services connected to maintenance for a floating storage facility offshore Africa.
