Daiho Maritime was formed in 1989 to provide barges for nearshore construction projects undertaken by Daiho Projects Services. After contributing success to the latter company, Daiho Maritime expanded its services to offshore oil and gas. In 2008, the company began through the charter of the Daiho I barge to an international oil company for their exploration activities in offshore Sarawak, Malaysia
To expand the Group’s presence into the offshore oil & gas sector, Daiho Energy Services was formed in 2007 and started its business by collaborating with engineering partners to provide turnkey solutions for marginal oil field development. Daiho Energy Services built the Daiho II, which was one of the key equipment that contributed to the success of our turnkey solution. In fact, the use of the Daiho II helped our client achieve the first oil production 16-24 earlier than the conventional method at 12% lower CAPEX and 45% lower OPEX.
Daiho Energy Services intended to pursue its main ambition that is to provide sophisticated transportations and low-cost solutions to international oil and gas players. In 2012, the company built the Cape Support 1 – a double-hulled, specialized barge that can enhance offshore oil and gas exploration activities. Equipped with numerous features, the Cape Support 1 can improve efficiency in fluid storage, tank cleaning and tank maintenance, as well as reduce risks of cargo contamination. The barge also has multiple functionalities as it can be outfitted as a mud barge or mini FPSO/ well-test barge.
