According to the Edge Daily, Malaysia oil rig fabricators need to upgrade their services and technology or lose out on fast-growing global demand for shallow, deep-water and ultra-deep oil rigs, an industry researcher said.
The industry estimates expect some 15 new rig
s and 70 platforms to be installed in the next five years alone to cater to the Malaysian deepwater sector, according to Maritime Institute of Malaysia (MIMA) research.
The major local players are MISC Bhd subsidiary Malaysia Marine & Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd (MMHE), Sime Darby Bhd subsidiary Sime Darby Engineering Sdn Bhd, Muhibbah Engineering (M) Bhd and Ramunia Holdings Bhd.
