  1. Very Interesting bit of news. But in order to present a complete picture we must inform the readers that Indias ONGC which awarded the Jobs to Swiber operates using the Lowest Bidder system.
    It is common knowledge that Swiber’s winning bid for all three jobs were 30-35% less than the next highest bidder.

    So the question is, why does a company like Swiber, which has not generated positive cash for years, so desperate to pick up Loss making jobs? Why is Swiber on a suicide bombing mission?
