Wintermar Offshore Marine Tbk (WINS:JK) expects business conditions will continue to improve through 2019 into 2020 as oil price outlook stays strong. At the company’s AGM today, Managing Director Sugiman Layanto reported that conditions are improving for the Offshore support vessel industry. As oil prices have strengthened and global expenditure on upstream oil and gas exploration and production is picking up, Wintermar expects a stronger year in 2020.
In Indonesia the activity has been slower to recover than outside of Indonesia due to lower charter rates and lower budgets. Through an emphasis on quality service, Wintermar has succeeded in winning contracts in foreign markets, and expanded to Africa last year.
Although the utilization was lower than expected in 1Q2019 due to delays in project commencements and the presidential elections in Indonesia in April 2019, there is an improvement expected for 2H2019 as business activity is improving.
