Swiber Wins Huge SE Asia 2013 Contracts

Press Release
Friday, March 01, 2013

Singapore's Swiber Holdings has been awarded subsea contracts in SE Asia worth approximately US$153-million.

The contracts, with oil industry majors, mark the first wins in 2013, largely entail transportation and installation of pipelines and offshore structures in Southeast Asia. Work for these contracts are expected to commence immediately with expected completion by 2013.

Commented Mr. Francis Wong, Group Chief Executive Officer and President of Swiber:

"The fast growing economies in Southeast Asia continues to drive energy demand, leading to a surge in offshore construction activities such as the construction and decommissioning of offshore pipelines."

"According to a market report by Infield Systems, the unprecedented demand for hydrocarbons is forcing national oil companies to increase their investment in pipelines in order to expand the network of connected shallow water gas platforms. Malaysia's National Oil Company, Petronas, for example, is expected to invest more than US$2.9 billion in pipelines and control lines for shallow water projects, such as, the Kebabangan and Bergading area gas fields. Infield estimates that more than 89,000 kilometres of pipelines and control lines will be installed during the 2012-2016 forecast period, out of which 42% of the total anticipated investment is expected to be directed towards projects in Europe and Asia."

"Swiber has a deep knowledge and wealthy experience of offshore work in Asia and we continue to be bullish about the region. Since 2012, Swiber has secured contracts worth over US$1.8 billion, with a significant portion to be carried out in Asia. In 2013, Swiber will continue to strategically bid for work in Southeast Asia in addition to other strategic regions such as South Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.”
