Under the joint venture, one company will be established, YZJ Offshore Engineering in Singapore (YOEPL), and YZJ Offshore Engineering (YOECCL) in China.

YZJ Offshore Engineering will be an offshore oil and gas industry service provider, performing marketing, procurement, engineering and management consultancy roles, while YZJ Offshore Engineering’s main businesses will be producing and repairing offshore and marine vessels and platforms.

Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Holdings and Qatar Investment will jointly invest $110m in YOEPL initially and the company will be equally owned.
