Hence, the rig is expected to work efficiently and with good quality and safety level in which it is Apexindo's commitment to always focus on clients' needs", explains Hertriono Kartowisastro, The company's President Director. The addition of Soehanah is an implementation of The company's strategy to focus on the offshore rig segment and to capitalize on the robust offshore oil and gas drilling market with high utilization and day rates for offshore rigs having risen substantially on the back of strong demand, driven by the high oil price and strong E&P activities. The Soehanah has secured a long-term contract with Total E&P Indonesie for gas drilling project in Sisi and Nubi, East Kalimantan. This is testimony of Apexindo's commitment to support the Indonesian Government in increasing domestic energy production and reserves.
Soehanah is expected to contribute positively to Apexindo's performance in the years to come. Agustinus B. Lomboan, Finance Director of Apexindo said "With the addition of another jackup that has secured a contract with Total E&P Indonesie, The company's financial performance and positions are expected to improve significantly.
