Harris Pye Opens New Offices in Malaysia

Harris Pye Opens News Offices in Malaysia

To cope with ever-increasing demand for its services in Asia, marine and offshore oil and gas engineering company Harris Pye has opened a new workshop and office in Malaysia. 

Although the global company already has branches in Singapore, China, Japan and Australia, its burgeoning order book has made having new Malaysian sites a necessity.

Both the office – situated in Kuala Lumpur – and the Pasir Gudang workshop are being headed up by the group’s Technical Manager, Mark Tamlin.

Explaining Mark’s appointment as the Malaysian manager, Group Technical Director Chris David says: “There is no one better qualified and more able to take up this vitally important position. During the twenty-five years in which Mark has been at Harris Pye, he has handled some of our biggest projects. His technical expertise and project management skills are second-to-none.”

Malaysia’s importance within the oil and gas industry was a key factor in it being chosen by Harris Pye. The company operates globally 24/7, providing repairs, refurbishments and upgrades to ships, rigs, FPSOs, FSOs, FSRUs, FSUs and LNG carriers. So far this year, Harris Pye has completed over a hundred such projects all over the world. During April alone it carried out £10.5m-worth of rig renovations in the UK, Singapore and Brazil.

The group has experienced significant growth in the last five years – turnover has trebled, and as Mr David comments:  “Almost twenty-five percent of our work takes place in the Far East, so it makes sense for us to establish new sites here in Malaysia.”

Harris Pye’s Pasir Gudang facility is within Johor Port, and has a 2500m2 enclosed workshop with 6000m2 of external lay down and storage area. In addition to this, it has four overhead gantry cranes and is fully equipped with many types of machinery and welding equipment to support all the company’s offshore projects in the Malaysian market.

“With these facilities we can fabricate high and low pressure piping systems, pre-fabricate primary and secondary steel structures or rotary equipment, undertake mechanical overhauls, heat treatment, blasting, painting, pressure testing and also carry out electrical and instrumentation works” says Mr Tamlin.

Harris Pye will also be offering its much-acclaimed 360 degree 3D laser-scanning system from its new Malaysian sites.  Since the company announced that it had used the equipment to successfully survey the engine room of “K” Line’s LNG Carrier the Neva River back in March, demand for the service has been so high that it has had to purchase two more scanners.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
