Hayleys Energy Services completes Lanka’s first oil rig testing and modification

In a significant and strategic shift in the Oil and Gas industry in Sri Lanka, Hayleys Energy Services has completed the testing, repair and modifications of the hydraulic work over rig, the ‘Lewek Explorer 600’, due to be mobilized for an oil field project in Bangladesh shortly.

This is the first time an oil rig has been serviced on-shore in Sri Lanka with Hayleys Energy Services having been awarded the contract by EMAS Energy Services (Thailand). This was made possible due to the availability of Advantis Free Zone, located in Katunayake which enabled a streamlined service of storage, repair and maintenance with green channel operations, relieving the client of all taxes and duties.
