Contract awards for the oil & gas sector are expected to recover after a decline in Q4 2019, said AmInvestment Research (AmResearch).

Malaysia’s 2019 contract awards slid 6% year-on-year (yoy) to RM11.5 billiion due to slower order flows in Q4, which fell 35% quarter-on-quarter (qoq) and halved yoy to RM2.2 billion.

This followed multiple awards to Sapura Energy, Malaysia Marine & Heavy Engineering Holdings (MMHE) securing a RM2.5 billion Kasawari central processing platform job and Bumi Armada’s 30% stake in ONGC’s KG-DWN 98/2 FPSO charter in the previous quarter.
