Duffy & McGovern Secures Contract Offshore Malaysia

Duffy & McGovern has secured a six-month contract providing sleeping accommodation modules for a project located offshore Malaysia for Diamond Offshore.

The company's Singapore base has supplied an eight-man module to the contractor's Ocean General semisubmersible rig in a deal worth around $100,000.

Duffy & McGovern's module, which is A60 fire rated and includes integral fire and gas detection systems, adds to the Ocean General's permanent 100-man living quarters and will house Diamond personnel carrying out work for CTOC (Carigali-Triton Operating Company) in the region.

Duffy & McGovern's commercial director, Craig Russell, said: "We are delighted to continue to broaden our work with Diamond Drilling on a global level, having previously worked with them on operations in the North Sea and Gulf of Mexico.

"We have already doubled our fleet in southeast Asia to allow us to respond to our clients' needs and by the end of 2006 we will have 80 engineering and accommodation units ready for deployment in the region."

DMAS has 270 accommodation modules in its global fleet, serving the world's key oil and gas regions and is managed from international hubs in Aberdeen, New Orleans and Singapore.
