Singapore’s Swiber Holdings Limited has won a total of $405.6 million for a series of contracts, including its latest $333 million contract for Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Construction (EPIC) services in India.
The contract in India is the second awarded to Swiber by the same national oil company in just over a month. The project, to start immediately, involves transportation and installation of subsea pipelines and engineering works and modification of existing facilities.
Phase 1 is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2016 and Phase II, the second quarter of 2017.
In addition, in recent months, Swiber also clinched a few other smaller contracts for mooring, jack-up installation and offshore pipeline and subsea work, in the Asia Pacific region.
The awards boost the Group’s order book to over US$1.8 billion to-date, including a US$710 million offshore field development project in West Africa last December and the US$310 million contract from the same Indian national oil company last month.
The latter involves a full suite of EPCIC services for eight new platforms and associated pipelines for the development of a new offshore gas field, with Phase I expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2016 and Phase II, for the first quarter of 2017.
Group Chief Executive Officer, Francis Wong said: “We are pleased to have clinched another major project from the same client in India this month and the award is a testament to their confidence in our ability to deliver quality work in a timely manner.
“Going into the tender, we exercised stringent cost analysis and took into consideration the inhouse and shared resources within the Group. We were confident that our strategy of investing in a suite of marine assets and our ability to integrate our offshore EPIC and offshore marine services, would give us competitive advantage over bidders who did not own their own assets.”
