25 June 2014, Sweetcrude, Lagos – Swire Oilfield Services, the leading global supplier of cargo carrying solutions, modular systems, offshore aviation services and fluid management has announced plans to further invest in Southeast Asia with the development of three new operational yards and the arrival of new rental equipment to its fleet.
The company, which established its first Southeast Asia base in Singapore in 2010 and has since opened further bases across the region, is the largest supplier of DNV certified cargo carrying units in the Southeast Asia market.
