Pivotree Appoints Exclusive Agent for Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei & Singapore

For Immediate Release


  • Agreement secured with South Seas Offshore Sdn Bhd, an associate company of OLIO GROUP.
  • SSO will exclusively promote the PIVOTREE technology in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and Brunei.
  • Olio Group is a 100% Malaysian company with over 25 years’ experience servicing the region.

Oil and Gas technology company Pivotree (or the “Company”) is excited to join forces with OLIO GROUP associate company, South Seas Offshore (“SSO”) to significantly expand its efforts in the Southeast Asian region. SSO will build on the momentum already gained with several Malaysian operators.

OLIO GROUP, led by Executive Chairman, Dato Ramli Md Nor, established in 1995, has a strong reputation and long track record delivering sustainable solutions in Drilling & Oilfield Services, Well Services, Process, M&E, Industrial Cleaning, Floating Facilities, Water Production and Treatment Systems. SSO is Olio’s vehicle for agency partnerships and will lead efforts.

Under the Agreement, SSO will exclusively market the PIVOTREE technology in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and Brunei. The Agreement does not provide for a minimum term and will continue in perpetuity.

Pivotree CEO, Chris Merrick, commented: “We are thrilled about this partnership with OLIO GROUP. The clear synergy between our companies makes this an excellent strategic fit.

Malaysia is PIVOTREE’s third biggest market by volume and a strategic priority for our business given its proximity to Australia and the strong government support to increase oil and gas production, especially through the development of “Discovered Resource Opportunities” (DROs). In a recent bid round, the Malaysian regulator promoted 200 such DROs, 80 of which are stranded oil reserves.

By combining PIVOTREE’s innovative technology with SSO’s robust regional network and expertise, we are set to create mutual benefits and significantly impact the oil and gas sector in Southeast Asia.”

OLIO GROUP Executive Chairman, Dato Ramli Md Nor commented: “We are equally excited about our partnership with PIVOTREE. Our firm belief in the technology has even prompted us to make a strategic investment. Operators of uneconomically feasible/stranded fields can now re-strategise their production development plans by taking advantage of PIVOTREE’s significant reduction in CAPEX/OPEX, deployment time, and environmental impact.”
