Petronas awards Barakah Offshore Subsea contract

Malaysia’s Barakah Offshore has secured a contract to provide subsea services at Petronas Carigali’s subsea fields in east Malaysia.

The contract calls for the provision of a main and support vessel, air and saturation diving, remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and other related subsea services.

These include Inspection, Maintenance, Repair, drilling support and other work to support Petronas Carigali’s operations, as and when necessary.

The work will be carried out by Barakah Offshore’s subsidiary, PBJV.

Barakah Offshore did not provide the financial details on the award, as the total value of the deal will depend on the actual work orders to be issued by Petronas Carigali during the contract period, which starts in August 2016 and ends in August 2018.

There also an option to extend for another year. Petronas Carigali is an exploration and production subsidiary of the Malaysian energy giant Petronas.
