Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Shahril Shamsuddin, President and the Group Chief Executive Officer said:

“The Group recorded a positive third quarter for the financial year, leveraging on our ability to secure work through existing client relationships and our track record to deliver work safely, on budget and on time. Notable contract wins this quarter include the contract extension for the SKD Pelaut working for Brunei Shell Petroleum and ONGC’s B-127 Cluster pipelines in India.

In Energy, the SK310 B15 field development is on-track with first gas expected in Q4 2017 and we are currently progressing on the SK408 development.

While the industry outlook remains uncertain in the short term, there are now early indications that oil price is heading towards a path of relative stability in the medium term. In the short term, competition for work will remain intense and margin pressures will likely to continue through into the next year.

We continue efforts to further enhance our competitiveness in the market, and remain committed to our initiatives towards increasing productivity and efficiency. The measures we take now are to maintain our agility in this challenging environment and ensure long-term sustainability for the Group.”
