Oslo: Offshore and subsea vessel owner DOF has signed a deal with Chevron Australia to provide IMR services for three years on the Australian North West Shelf.
DOF Subsea will utilize Skandi Protector (4,000 dwt, built 2004) to undertake the work with support from a team in Perth. The vessel has been based in Australia for the past four years on charter to the Australian Government, and has just undergone upgrading works to include two new ROV systems.
“This is an extremely important contract for DOF Subsea and will support our continued investment in Australia. The contract together with the seven plus three year IMR contract won earlier this year will strengthened our market position, engineering and supply chain capabilities in the APAC region and support further growth in the region” commented Mons Aase, ceo of DOF Subsea.
DOF just signed a deal with Chevron in Brazil last week to extend the contract for construction support vessel Skandi Salvador.
