For the Services business, we remain committed in securing new projects globally. Our recent contract wins of RM1.5 billion signify the Group’s ability to remain competitive in expanding our footprint and service offerings. Concurrently, we continue to focus on executing existing projects in South East Asia, India, Turkey and Brazil.

In our E&P business, we have completed the SK310 B15 gas field development project. This achievement demonstrates the capabilities of our team to deliver projects on schedule and within budget. We are confident that the commencement of SK310 B15 gas production combined with development opportunities presented by the significant discoveries in SK408 gas field, will provide long-term financial visibility to the Group.
