I would like to extend our gratitude to Michael for his contribution and service over the last two years during which KrisEnergy has undertaken a financial restructuring and a realignment of its business strategy.”

Ong was appointed CEO of Keppel Offshore & Marine on July 1, 2017. Before this appointment, he was the managing director of Keppel FELS. He began his career with Keppel FELS in 1999 as a commissioning superintendent and has held various roles within the company.
