Hess Charters Lewek Arunothai FPSO (Malaysia)
Ezra Holding’s owned EOC Limited (EOC), has secured its first contract with Hess E&P Malaysia for the charter of the Group’s Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel, the Lewek Arunothai.
The Letter of Award will deploy the FPSO Lewek Arunothai, on a three-year fast-track gas production project in the North Malay Basin, Malaysia. The FPSO will be used to support early production activities and is targeted to be on station from mid-2013.
The value of the three years long contract is estimated at $272.1 million with the potential of another US$271.1 million should the full extension of three years be exercised.
