The award, secured by the group’s wholly-owned subsidiary Carimin Sdn Bhd, commences immediately and is effective for two years until 2017.

Carimin is required to provide two types of vessels, namely the Anchor Handling Tug/Supply (AHTS) vessel and the workboat.

The contract has an option for a further one-year extension.

The spot charter contract stipulates usage of the vessels by the client on demand within the contract period.

“Securing this contract is significant for Carimin because it is the group’s first contract to provide pure marine services, which is a positive step towards establishing this new earnings stream,” said Mokhtar bin Hashim, managing director of Carimin Petroleum.

“This award also deepens our working relationship with PCSB, where we have existing contracts to provide hook-up and commissioning (HUC), maintenance, manpower, and now marine vessel services. We believe that winning this contract amidst the dampened sentiment in the oil and gas sector demonstrates the group’s competitiveness within the industry.

“We intend to continue doing well for our jobs in hand, as we are constantly eyeing more of such contracts to increase our income base.”

Currently, the Group owns Carimin Airis, an AHTS, and co-owns SK Deep Sea, a workboat, that are supporting the group’s ongoing projects in HUC and maintenance works.
