Oilfield services provider China Oilfield Services Limited (COSL) has appointed GAC Malaysia to provide a range of on- and offshore support services in Malaysia.
Under the master services agreement signed by the two companies, GAC will provide rig lay-up services, crew management, warehousing, freight, customs brokerage, marine charter, and agency services to COSL.
The deal also entails support afield in South East Asia and worldwide, if required.
According to GAC, work under the new contract is already underway. GAC’s Labuan office worked with the oil & gas projects department in Kuala Lumpur on the first backload and loadout job, which included the chartering of an offshore support vessel and project cargo moves.
Matthew Trovato, GAC’s Labuan Branch Manager, said: “We have established a robust relationship with COSL over the past few months. I am positive that this partnership will continue to grow and become stronger, as we embark on collaboration opportunities in other parts of the world.”
Mou Jun, Procurement Manager of COSL, added: “We are pleased to have GAC as our logistics partner and are confident that the two companies can leverage our close cooperation and strong teamwork to achieve greater efficiency.”
