Newly formed EMAS Chiyoda Subsea, the recently finalised 50:50 joint venture of Singapore’s Ezra Holdings and Japan’s Chiyoda Corporation, is looking to cold stack $150m pipelay vessel Lewek Centurion sources tell Splash.
The vessel, once worth in the region of $250m, has been idle for some time with the video below showing it idle in Batam, Indonesia back in February. Several sources have confirmed to Splash that the company is seeking quotes to cold stack the vessel.
The last report of activity for the vessel was announced by Ezra Holdings in June 2015, for work in Asia that included subsea pipeline free span work, well plug and abandonments, well stimulation, as well as pipeline pre-commissioning work for a variety of oil majors and national oil companies.
The EMAS Chiyoda Subsea website says the vessel is readily available for service around the world.
