Leading integrated oilfield services provider, China Oilfield Services Limited (COSL) has appointed GAC Malaysia to provide a range of on- and offshore support services in Malaysia, as well as to render support as required further afield in South East Asia and worldwide.
Under the master services agreement signed by the two companies, GAC will provide rig lay-up services, crew management, warehousing, freight, customs brokerage, marine charter and agency services to COSL.
Matthew Trovato, GAC’s Labuan Branch Manager says: “We have established a robust relationship with COSL over the past few months. I am positive that this partnership will continue to grow and become stronger, as we embark on collaboration opportunities in other parts of the world.”
Mou Jun, Procurement Manager of COSL says GAC’s strong commitment to business ethics and HSSE (Health, Safety, Security and the Environment) resonates well with COSL's value of placing high importance on the health and safety of all involved. "We are pleased to have GAC as our logistics partner and are confident that the two companies can leverage our close cooperation and strong teamwork to achieve greater efficiency. I look forward to bringing our partnership to the next level.”
Work under the new contract is already underway. The 11-strong team from GAC’s Labuan office worked with the Oil & Gas Projects Department in Kuala Lumpur led by Key Account Manager Rahul Bhoj 36 hours round-the-clock to complete the first major backload and loadout job, which included the chartering of an offshore support vessel and project cargo moves.
