Maersk Supply Service secures anchor handler contract from Quadrant Energy

Maersk Supply Service has been awarded contracts by Quadrant Energy for the employment of anchor handler newbuildings Maersk Master and Maersk Mariner off Western Australia.

Both vessels will support Quadrant Energy’s Phoenix South and Van Gogh drilling campaigns, which will initially cover three wells for a duration of 150 to 200 days. The vessels will be supporting Transocean’s semi-submersible rig DD1 with supply and anchor handling duties throughout the campaign.

“Quadrant Energy is an important customer. We are excited about having our two new-built Starfish vessels, Maersk Master and Maersk Mariner, operating together on this program. This is a unique opportunity to demonstrate their state-of-the-art capabilities such as minimized environmental footprint, high standard for safety and on board comfort for customers,” said David Lofthouse, Maersk Supply Service’s head of commercial Asia-Pacific.
