Sembcorp Marine Bags $806.4M Drillship Order from Sete Brasil

Singapore's Sembcorp Marine, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Jurong Offshore, said Thursday in a statement that it has secured a drillship contract worth $806.4 million from Sete Brasil Participacǒes.

The contract will be for the design and construction of a drillship based on Jurong Shipyard's proprietary Jurong Espadon drillship design.

The drillship, scheduled for delivery no later than the third quarter of 2016, is the seventh unit of a series of drillships that Sembcorp Marine’s subsidiaries have secured since February.

Maybank's analyst Yeak Chee Keong noted in an offshore and marine sector update issued earlier in November that Sembcorp Marine "should continue to win good orders as long as fundamentals in the offshore oil and gas sector remain intact."

Yeak however also pointed out that one of the risk factors that could affect Sembcorp Marine’s future performance is competition from both the traditional South Korean shipyards and the emerging Chinese shipyards.
