Francis Wong, Group Chief Executive Officer and President of Swiber, said: "We are pleased to have delivered our second consecutive year of record-high revenue and net profit.
"With revenue surpassing the US$1 billion mark, this is not only a momentous breakthrough for Swiber but also a firm reflection of our strong underlying fundamentals and testimony to our operational capabilities."
"The Southeast Asian market, where we enjoy a long and solid track record, remains strong, given expected accelerated oil and gas exploration to boost domestic production in this region. We remain bullish on rest of Asia too, where rig demand is expected to be strong for the next few years.
“With a diversified portfolio in our US$800 million orderbook, we are well-positioned to expand and secure our foothold in the Latin America market."
