Aberdeen-based oil services group OEG Offshore’s Singaporean subsidiary has won its first rental contract in the Philippines to deliver a series of units to a project on-board a jack-up rig.
OEG Asia Pacific PTE Limited (OEG APac), which specialises in the design, build and rental of cabins and cargo-carrying units for the offshore oil and gas market, has secured a deal with Nido Petroleum worth around £25k ($40k USD) with the option of additional work - the first rental contract with the firm since OEG launched its Singapore base in November 2009.
OEG APac will supply a series of mini-containers and cargo baskets for the Tindalo development project on the Aqua Marine Driller. The containers and baskets will be used for the mobilisation and demobilisation of equipment and supplies to and from the installation.
The units – which have all been manufactured to the globally-recognised DNV2.7-1 standard - will be supplied with safety door cargo nets to improve operator safety in the field.
OEG APac Regional Director John Aw said: “This is the latest project for OEG APac, which has experienced a high level of demand for its services since being officially launched in November 2009 and is rapidly growing its client base in the region. This contract will involve the mobilisation of brand new units and the customer will receive support and assistance from the team at the Singapore base for the duration of the Tindalo project.
“We pride ourselves on reacting quickly to customer needs, and having our base in Singapore means that we are able to comply with Nido Petroleum’s requirements with immediate effect. Cost effective shipping and transportation are other key factors that we incorporate into our services and we have designed these units to a specification that enables them to be lifted using a forklift truck or transported offshore using DNV 271 slings that we provide.”
