Swiber clinches USD 80m Latin America subsea contract
'Swiber will continue to strategically bid strongly for projects in Latin America while staying actively focused and committed in our core Asia region,' Wong, Swiber CEO

 “We are pleased with this project win as it is testament to Swiber’s ability to successfully develop and grow in regions where we are expanding into as part of our strategic long term goals,” said Francis Wong, group chief executive officer and president of Swiber “Just last year, we had successfully completed the construction of a 77 kilometres-long submarine duct for Pemex, the Mexican state-owned oil company.”

The project will commence immediately and is expected to be completed in 2015.  Earlier in February 2014, the group also won contracts valued at approximately USD 235m. In aggregate, Swiber’s contract wins year-to-date rises to USD 315m.

“We believe that with the heightening of our marketing and business development efforts in Latin America, Swiber is steadily establishing foothold in the growing energy sector in Mexico where rising awareness of Swiber’s wide range of integrated offshore construction services, enhanced with in-house marine support and engineering capabilities has created a strong brand presence.”

There are abounding opportunities in Latin America, where a recent push to dismantle abandoned oil and gas infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico has created a USD 2.5bn  market for companies.

“Swiber is confident of its technical abilities, asset-strength, local country offices and works closely with contacts who have strong local expertise in their regions. With these competitive  strengths, Swiber will continue to strategically bid strongly for projects in Latin America while staying actively focused and committed in our core Asia region.”
