  • The Group will continue to focus on extending its product and service offerings, as well as expanding its geographical footprints
  • Seeking to collaborate and partner with technology companies in order to foster technology innovation and maintain a competitive edge

KUALA LUMPUR, 23 MAY 2023 - Leading oil & gas (O&G) services provider Deleum Berhad (“Deleum” or the “Group”),will focus on growth in both its top and bottom lines, spurred by the projected rise in global capital spending in the O&G sector as a result of robust demand for fossil energy.

To fuel the Group’s next phase of growth, Deleum intends to broaden its product and service offerings, as well as regional presence. Deleum will continue to invest in processes and systems to integrate its services on a seamless and robust platform, increasing the Group’s capacity to meet the needs of its clients.

“We value our core businesses and will continue working with our principals to strengthen our position in the industry. While we seek to grow our current business by expanding on market share through cross- and upselling within our various segments, we need to set sights on our next growth impetuses in order to create sustainable earnings. We are not only extending our product and service offerings but also expanding our geographic footprint, particularly in Indonesia and Thailand. This will allow us to better support and increase our client base in the region as demand grows. We are committed to executing our strategic initiatives and effectively leveraging our competitive advantages in order to continue with our commendable earnings track record.” Rao Abdullah Group Chief Executive Officer, Deleum Berhad

The Group is also on the lookout for technological companies with which to collaborate in order to foster technological innovation in its products and services while maintaining its competitive edge. The potential partnership and collaboration with technology partners dovetail Deleum’s aim to achieve transformative growth this year and in the future. Deleum notched up revenue of RM698.0 million in financial year ended 31 December 2022 (FY2022), an increase of 25.0% from the previous year, which was attributed to encouraging spending in the oil and gas sector. Overall growth was delivered across three segments, Power and Machinery, Oilfield Services, and Integrated Corrosion Solution.
