Swiber 1H profit jumps 68%

For the year-to-date, Swiber has won contracts worth a total of US$315 million, which entail EPIC (engineering, procurement, installation and construction) projects across Southeast Asia and Latin America. Commented Mr.

Francis Wong, Group Chief Executive Officer and President of Swiber, “Riding on the strong momentum in the offshore sector, we have been actively bidding for major projects in our existing and target markets in Asia Pacific, Middle East, Latin America and West Africa. We have stepped up our business development efforts in Latin America and landed several contracts earlier in 2014 for subsea development and other projects in this market. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Group expects to see an improvement in our order book over the next two quarters.”

As at 30 June 2014, Swiber has an order book of approximately US$610 million.
