Unithai enters SE Asian energy transportation arena

Bangkok: Unithai, the Thai arm of IMC Corp Group, has unveiled plans to provide transportation-based supply-chain solution services to South East Asia, primarily for Thailand's oil and gas industry. Singapore-based Unithai Energy Pte Ltd will operate the new business in collaboration with oil instrument diversified broker PVM Oil Associates.

"Unithai has provided supply-chain services for the energy industry since 1999, when it commenced its offshore logistics business," said Kim Kyung Soo, IMC Corp Group deputy ceo and Unithai Energy md. "Now, it is forming Thailand's largest fleet of the supply and support vessels for the oil and gas industry in Thailand. In collaboration with PVM," said Mr Kim, "we will be able to expand our energy transportation and supplychain solutions to support further energy development in the midst of the region's continued economic growth and rapid industrialisation."

Unithai is part of an energy supply chain that includes parent company IMC Corp Group, an Asia-focused firm that provides integrated industrial solutions, and sister company Aurora Tankers, a regional operator in liquid bulk transportation.  [18/04/08]
