OceanPact acquires MPSV from Neptune

Brazilian offshore vessel owner and services provider OceanPact Serviços Marítimos has expanded its fleet with the addition of the 2011-built multipurpose support vessel (MPSV) Larissa from Norway’s Neptune Offshore.

Transaction details between the two subsidiaries, OceanPact Netherlands and Neptune Subsea, have not been disclosed, but multiple brokers reported a price tag of $16m, slightly above its VesselsValue estimated price of $15.5m.

The Norwegian-flagged ship will be used for remotely operated vehicle (ROV) support services on the recently-secured contract with the Brazilian oil major Petrobras, which will utilise two OceanPact vessels and two ROVs.

The three-year charter in combination with ROV services has an estimated daily rate of $62,227 and $65,188, respectively.
