Sapura Energy has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Sapura 3000 Private Ltd. has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with Safeen Feeder, a company in the Abu Dhabi Ports Group of Companies, for the disposal of its pipe-laying and crane vessel known as Sapura 3000 for a total cash consideration of US$71.5 million or approximately RM312.8 million.
The price of the vessel was based on a willing buyer-willing seller basis, after conducting an international Request for Proposal process.
The proposed asset disposal exercise is part of the Group’s Reset plan, which focuses on Sapura Energy’s long-term sustainability by improving its liquidity position, streamlining its operating model and providing greater flexibility for strategic growth.
The cash generated from the proposed disposal of Sapura 3000 will be utilised for working capital and to reduce the borrowings of the Group. Sapura Energy expects the sale of the asset to be completed by the middle of July, this year.
The Sapura 3000 is a versatile heavy lift pipe laying vessel, equipped with a 3000 short t revolving mast crane, capable of executing deep and shallow water projects. Sapura 3000 was built in 2008 and is currently sailing under the flag of Malaysia.
