Four platform support vessels (PSVs) owned by Norway’s Deep Sea Supply have won charters with major oil companies all over the world, which will take one vessel out of lay up. The Oslo-listed company did not, however, disclose the value of each contract.
Statoil (UK) has chartered Sea Falcon (built 2013) for two years, plus a three-year extension option. The PSV is expected to commence the contract in the North Sea during the fourth quarter this year.
The vessel has been laid up since July last year in Mandal, Norway. Its last reported contract was 21 days of supply duties for Total E&P in May 2015.
Meanwhile, Deep Sea Supply’s PSVs Sea Frost (built 2013) and Sea Supra (built 2014) have respectively been awarded 60-day and 90-day contracts in Asia for an unnamed international oil company. The charters, which commenced in mid-April, include 120-day extension options.
Latest AIS data shows the two vessels recently departed Singapore and are expected to arrive in Korsakov on Russia’s Sakhalin Island in the coming weeks.
Deep Sea Supply’s PSV Sea Titus (built 2014) has commenced a four-month contract in South America with another unnamed oil company, plus an optional two-month extension. The ship last week arrived in Paramaribo in Suriname, AIS data shows.
