Message from the President

Dear MOOGAS Members,

It has been an honor and privilege for me to serve MOOGAS as President for the past year. I have been re-elected for a second term 2019-2020 as President and hereby to like to express my gratitude for the support and confidence, the committee members have shown in me.


It had been a very eventful year for MOOGAS.


We upgraded our website to bring you faster and easier access to the information you need and helpful advice and industry news for you.


We also went on an extensive recruitment drive to fill in our ranks. We have currently Singapore's ten top offshore shipowners as our corporate members and represent an offshore fleet of close to 600 vessels, e.g. POSH, ASL Marine, Marco Polo Marine, Bourbon Offshore etc, along with big industry names like Kongsberg Rolls Royce, ABB, leading offshore brokerages like Clarksons and M3 etc, along with top shipping and maritime legal firms like Peter Doriasamy LLC and Reedsmith etc


I have been asked on many occasions what is MOOGAS's contribution to the maritime industry in respect of the many other more established maritime associations and societies.


My response to that is our commitment and dedication to the Operational Excellence in what we do in the offshore, oil and gas, maritime industry.

Our relentless pursuit to understand what our customers need, fuels our passion to operational excellence by taking a holistic view of processes and data that drive those operations.


As we reinvent ourselves to answer our customer's needs of greener and environmental friendly vessels, advise them on new admiralty law statues, conduct business on new digital platforms that connect shipowners and charterers, innovate new products and services within the maritime space, we will continue in our drive to arrange for workshops on marine offshore advancements, operational advancements having an application to marine technology.


I will take this opportunity to welcome 2 lady members into the Executive Committee, Ms Kohe Hasan as Assistant Secretary and Ms Ei Ei Khaing as our Assistant Treasurer as we answer to the call to empowering Women in the Maritime Community. We look forward to their contribution to MOOGAS. We also intend to Co-Op 4 members into the Ex-Co this term. 2 youth members below 40 years old and 2 more seats for Shipowners to allow more representation for them. Going forward, we would also be spending more efforts to bring in junior members in view of succession planning. This can be done in conjunction with SMA and their students events like social activities eg Dinner and Dance, Introduction to Fishing event, pleasure boat excursions and networking sessions. We will be looking at providing mentorship opportunities for members eg students and young working adults who would like to learn more from our industry experts.


Finally, it gives me great pleasure to inform you that Mr Farid Khan, Chairman of Bourbon Offshore Asia, has accepted our invitation to be a Patron for MOOGAS. This is in recognition of his past contribution, with the initiation and the startup of the Association in 2005, and for his past contributions in advice and generosity. We look forward to working very closely with him in driving the offshore market business and networking opportunities to all members.


In closing, we thank you for all your support so far and look forward to seeing you in the next networking event Greatworld Festival on 28th June 2019 and also our Dinner and Dance ( A Magical Night at the Races) on 4th October 2019.


Kind Regards

Wee Jimmie
