SINGAPORE - Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Fels Offshore, has signed a management services agreement with Titan Petrochemicals Group - a company in which commodities trading conglomerate Guangdong Zhenrong Energy is a major shareholder - and Titan Quanzhou Shipyard (TQS), to manage the TQS shipyard.

When completed, TQS will have four ultra-large and wide dry docks, including one of the largest modern-designed docks in China, which will enable it to convert double hull vessels such as floating production storage and offloading units.

Besides ship repair and conversion capabilities, the yard is also able to construct offshore rigs including jack-ups and semisubmersibles.
