Malaysia: Coastal Secures Major Vessel Sale

Coastal Contracts Bhd  today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Coastal Offshore (Labuan) Pte Ltd and Thaumas Marine Ltd, have collectively secured contracts for the sale of two units Anchor Handling Tug Supply (“AHTS”) and one unit Subsea Support Vessel (“SSV”) for an aggregate value of approximately RM111 million.

SSV is designed to transport liquid cargo, stores, materials and equipment, move men and material between platforms and facilitates general subsea support, maintenance, transport and standby. She is capable of 24 hours/day continuous operation and remains on station for a minimum of 30 days and has excellent handling and manoeuvrability at all speeds under all conditions, making it an ideal candidate to carry out general subsea support tasks.

The SSV is sold to a new customer from United Arab Emirates whereas the two units AHTS are sold to one of our loyal customers from Indonesia.

All of these vessels are expected to be delivered in 2012 and 2013. Consequently, the revenue stream from these vessels is expected to contribute positively to the top and bottom line performance of the Group for the financial years ending 31 December 2012 and 31 December 2013. As of to date, Coastal Group has approximately RM743 million worth of vessel sales orders awaiting delivery to customers up to 2013.

Mr Ng Chin Heng, the Executive Chairman of Coastal, commented:

“This is Coastal Group’s third major vessel sales win in relatively quick succession, following our previous major win of RM141 million announced last month. This is an encouraging milestone to accelerate our orderbook momentum after a setback in the early part of this year.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
