The deal, according to energy officials, allows one of the world-largest oil companies, Total SA, to launch its exploration venture in Bangladesh's south-eastern Bay of Bengal. Total SA, the fourth largest oil company in the world, acquired a 60 percent stake in the offshore gas blocks under an agreement with Tullow last year.

Swiber builds and installs parts of offshore oil platforms, lays pipelines, and maintains mooring systems at offshore oil fields. It also has a fleet of 10 specialized offshore-support vessels that it charters out or uses for its own construction projects. The fleet expansion is reportedly aimed at raising Swiber's capabilities as a contractor for the offshore industry. Fourteen new vessels, being built in China, are scheduled to be delivered in 2007.

The Department of Trade and Industry has partially funded a Scottish consortium to the tune of $1.1 million to develop equipment that can transmit data wirelessly underwater and enable divers to talk to each other without having to resort to hand signals. A ccording to the DTI, the technology resulting from the research project should be invaluable to oceanographic and environmental monitoring and increase safety for professional divers working in the oil and gas industries.
