H’tota Port enters drillship lay-up services industry

Thursday, 27 December 2018 | 16:00

The arrival of the oil and gas drillship Aban Abraham at the Hambantota International Port heralds Sri Lanka’s entry into the global oil and gas marine vessel lay-up services industry.

Hayleys Energy Services, a subsidiary of Hayleys PLC’s transportation and logistics arm – Hayleys Advantis Limited, competed with several players from established lay-up service destinations in the region to win the country’s first drill ship lay-up project, getting the services of Aban Offshore Limited, India’s largest offshore drilling services provider to oil companies.

Hayleys Advantis Limited Managing Director Ruwan Waidyaratne said, “Projects of this nature have a significant impact on the economy as a whole, creating business and employment opportunities beyond the enterprises directly involved in it.

“The leadership, commitment and world-class facilities at the Hambantota International Port Group (HIPG) will go a long way in helping us attract long-term businesses such as this,” he said.

Petroleum Resources Development Secretariat (PRDS) former Director General Saliya Wickramasuriya said, “Hambantota is an excellent location not only for a vehicle transhipment and break bulk hub, but also for a potential regional service and repair centre for the South Asian oil and gas industry.”
