The contract awards for work in Malaysia and in Vietnam were recently made to the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, SapuraKencana TL Offshore Sdn Bhd (SKTLO).

SKTLO has been awarded a series of different installation and transportation contracts, including a one-month job from Repsol Oil and Gas Malaysia Ltd. (formerly known as Talisman Malaysia Ltd.). The contract is for the transportation and installation of offshore facilities for the BOC-BOD pipeline replacement tie-in project.

The scope of work consists of subsea tie-in of spools to be executed at the Bunga Orkid development, located in the northern field of the PM3 commercial arrangement area, northeast of peninsular Malaysia, bordering Vietnam and Thailand.

The company won another installation contract from PTSC Offshore Services Joint Stock Co. for the offshore installation of the living quarters jacket, piles, and appurtenances (base scope) and module one (optional scope) at the Su Tu Trang field off Vietnam. The contract is for a period of around three months.

Yet another contract win came from Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd, this one related to the transportation and installation of pipeline, substructure, and topsides for the F12 gas development project.

ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc. (EMEPMI) granted SKTLO a contract for the transportation and installation of one new pipeline from Tapis Q to Guntong C as part of the Guntong pipelay project. The contract will begin following monsoon season, around March 2017, and is expected to end in May 2017.

In addition, SKTLO was also granted a contract by MISC Offshore Floating Terminals (L) Ltd. for the demobilization of the floating storage and offloading (FSO) ABU Project.
