Leighton Offshore has officially launched its new engineering business in Malaysia. DPS Leighton Engineering Sdn Bhd (LE), a fully owned PMC subsidiary of Leighton Offshore, provides engineering and PMC solutions for Leighton’s international EPCIC and LOFS business.

Leighton’s detailed engineering and PMC arm has grown from the former oil and gas engineering consulting business of DPS Bristol (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, which was acquired by Leighton. LE will also be providing technical, procurement and management support to DPS Consultant Malaysia Sdn Bhd, which provides oil and gas consultancy services in Malaysia.

Leighton Engineering has already been awarded its first contract with a value of USD 10 million to undertake the detailed engineering of two offshore platforms for the USD 518 million Sealine Project for Iraq’s South Oil Company which is being managed here in KL by a dedicated Leighton project team. The Leighton engineering team will also assist with the procurement and follow on engineering for the two platforms. The Sealine project involves the design, construction and installation of two offshore platforms, a 75km 48in oil pipeline and a single point mooring system and follows on from the USD 800 million ICOEEP project currently being undertaken by Leighton Offshore.
