UK Sembcorp Marine Buys SLP Engineering Limited

Sembcorp Marine through its wholly-owned subsidiary SMOE Pte Ltd (SMOE) has acquired from Smulders Group the entire share capital in its wholly-owned subsidiary of SLP Engineering Limited (SLP).

SLP, based in Lowestoft Suffolk, United Kingdom (UK), will be renamed Sembmarine SLP Limited (Sembmarine SLP) and will be held through newly incorporated company Sembmarine North Sea Limited (Sembmarine North Sea). Sembmarine North Sea will be 70% owned by SMOE and 30% owned by eight members of the SLP Management team led by its Managing Director, Mr Paul Thomson.

The acquisition would be on a willing buyer, willing seller basis and will be funded through SMOE’s internal funds.

SMOE will acquire all the shares in SLP from Zefier, a subsidiary of Smulders Group. Under the Sales & Purchase Agreement signed on 14 September 2012, SMOE will pay about £2.5 million for both shares and settlement of the intercompany loans of SLP. The deal will be completed only upon certain conditions being met. The NTA of SLP is about £0.7 million.

Mr Ho Nee Sin, Managing Director of SMOE said “Following the acquisition, Sembcorp Marine will now have a footprint in the UK, providing synergistic support and reaching out to its North Sea clientele. Sembmarine SLP offers the opportunity for future growth in new business areas within the renewable energy sector as well as in the fabrication of minimum facilities platforms (MFP) for marginal oil and gas fields in the North Sea and Asia Pacific waters.”

Mr Paul Thomson, Managing Director of Sembmarine SLP said “We are delighted to be part of the Sembcorp Marine Group, a leading offshore engineering group with diverse capabilities in rig building, ship construction, ship conversion, ship repair and offshore engineering & construction. With SMOE’s extensive experience in building major offshore structures, it will greatly enhance our objective of becoming the leading UK supplier of EPC services to the offshore energy market.”

The above acquisition is not expected to have material impact on the consolidated net tangible assets and earnings per share of Sembcorp Marine for the financial year ending 31 December 2012.

Technical Writing for E&P Staff: A Structured Approach

This unique workshop provides guidelines for the efficient reporting of petroleum engineering, geological and geophysical studies. No technical project carried out within the Petroleum Industry is complete if it is not presented or reported competently.

It will help you to produce concise and readable management briefings, well/study proposals, field development plans, operating manuals, equity documentation and study reports.

Most ‘communication skills’ courses are presented by individuals from outside the oil industry. This one is different. It gives practical instruction rather than theory, and is based on the presenter’s extensive experience of reporting integrated field development studies in an International Oil Company and Consultancy environment, as well as Board papers and legal documentation.
