Malaysia's Sapura Energy Berhad has announced two major project wins in South America, as well as a drilling contract win in the Ivory Coast.
The total value of the three contracts is a combined 840 million ringgit ($202.6 million).
In South America, Sapura Energy strengthened its hold as its subsidiary Sapura Energy Mexicana S.A.P.I. de C.V. secured the engineering, procurement, construction and installation scope for the Eni Mexico S. de R. L. de C.V. Amoca Project – Offshore Block Area 1 in Mexico.
The contract entails the transportation and installation of the Amoca Platform and the pipeline and subsea cable interconnecting the Amoca and Mizton platforms with the Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit. The works are expected to be completed by Q4 FY2022.
In Brazil, Sapura Energy builds upon its longstanding relationship with Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras), as the national oil company awarded twelve-months extension on the contract for the operation of pipe-laying support vessel Sapura Esmeralda.
The scope of work comprises the provision of services and charter for the installation and recovery of flexible pipes, by utilising Sapura Esmeralda in Brazilian waters. The existing contract is expected to complete by April 2021 and the twelve (12) months extension will commence immediately after the duration of the original contract of Sapura Esmeralda ends.
Meanwhile Sapura Energy marked its re-entry into Ivory Coast, as Foxtrot International LDC has awarded Sapura Drilling Holdings Limited a contract for the provision of its Tender Assist Drilling Rig Sapura Berani services in the country.
The contract scope comprises the provision of semi tender-assist drilling rig services for three wells, offshore Ivory Coast, commencing in Q1 FY2022. It includes the option of one well extension. With this contract, Sapura Energy will have two of its rigs operating in the African continent. Its semi-submersible tender assisted drilling rig Sapura Jaya is currently working offshore Angola.
