"The project represents one of the largest pipeline installation jobs undertaken in Asia Pacific in recent years, and provides us a great opportunity to leverage the strengths of our offshore capabilities," said Bob Deason, President and Chief Operating Officer of J. Ray. "J. Ray has worked with Vietsovpetro on several projects in the past and our successful track record of joint operations with PTSC will definitely be an advantage in ensuring this project is a success."
