Keppel AmFELS Strengthens GOM Presence

In what could be construed as a sign that good times are indeed ahead for the Gulf of Mexico offshore business, Amfels Inc. was recently renamed Keppel AmFELS, Inc. leveraging the Keppel and FELS brand names in its vision to further strengthen its presence in the Gulf of Mexico. The renaming ceremony took place on November 15, 2004, at the Keppel yard in Brownsville, Texas. Guest-of-Honour, Honourable Congressman Solomon P. Ortiz of the 27th Congressional District Texas was present to unveil the new corporate identity for AMFELS. “The FELS name embodies a proud heritage of our CAN DO! spirit and our commitment to be a provider of choice and a partner in solutions to our customers while the Keppel name is synonymous with resilience, versatility and quality, said Mr. Tong Chong Heong. “The renaming to Keppel AmFELS reflects its regional affiliation in Northern and Central America which covers USA, Canada and Mexico whose markets Keppel AmFELS is actively participating.” Particularly for Mexico, the government is planning to raise its crude oil and natural gas production in the next five years. According to a report by PEMEX, the national oil company, new investments have been planned for the development of infrastructure, exploration and production activities and offshore support equipment and vessels in order to maintain and increase its existing reserves and production levels.
