YHM Group Limited, a company owned by Singapore’s Ezion Holdings, has secured a contract valued up to approximately USD183 million.
Under the 3-year contract with an additional 2 year extendable option, YHM will provide a semi-submersible rig a Southeast Asian based national oil company (NOC). The unidentified NOC will use the rig to support its oil and gas activities in the Andaman Sea.

“Further details of the joint venture company will be announced upon the finalization of the joint venture company. The project will be funded through internal resources as well as bank borrowings. The project may have a positive contribution to the Group’s consolidated revenue for the financial year ending 31st December 2013,” said YHM group in a filing to Singapore Exchange.
Following the announcement the company’s shares rose 16.00%.
