* Hayleys Energy commences oil and gas drillship service at Hambantota Port
Mon, Dec 17, 2018, 09:03 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 17, Colombo: Hayleys Energy Services (HES), the pioneer in Oil and Gas support services in Sri Lanka, announced the arrival of the oil and gas drillship "Aban Abraham" for a warm lay-up to the Hambantota International Port, Sri Lanka.

Aban Offshore Limited, the company that own the vessel, is India's largest offshore drilling services provider to oil companies, providing drilling operations, production and exploratory work worldwide.

Hayleys Energy Services, a subsidiary of Sri Lankan blue-chip conglomerate Hayleys PLC's transportation and logistics arm - Hayleys Advantis Limited, had competed with several players from established lay-up service destinations in the region to win the country's first ever drill ship lay-up project.

Heralding Sri Lanka's entry into the global oil and gas marine vessel lay-up services industry, this opens the doors to a world of new opportunities for the nation's shipping industry.

"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 of the Hambantota International Port Group (HIPG) have been a key factor in the success of this project bid and will go a long way in helping us attract long-term businesses such as this," said Ruwan Waidyaratne, Managing Director - Hayleys Advantis Limited.

"Whilst commending the Hayleys Energy Services team for successfully competing with service providers from across the region and bagging this project, I look forward to seeing them expand their horizons and soar to greater heights," he went on to say,

Hayleys Energy Services has set up a permanent office within the Hambantota Port, at the 6th floor of the Sayurupaya Building, the first by an Oil & Gas Services company at this port, in light of this landmark project and the opportunities it is set to bring with it.
