Norway’s Solstad Offshore has entered into a contract with OMV Taranaki for the provision of a platform supply vessel to support the upcoming Crestal drilling campaign at the Maui A Platform offshore New Zealand.
The company will utilise 2014-built PSV Normand Tortuga, which will commence the contract in by mid-March for a firm period of 250 days. The contract also includes an additional 11 months of options.
Keith Soutar, managing director for Asia Pacific at Solstad Offshore, commented: “We are delighted to receive this contract award from OMV. The New Zealand marketplace has been a key strategic target of ours and, further to the recent CSV Normand Baltic contract award, this additional contract will now result in two vessels being in region commencing Q1 /Q2 2020.”
The vessel is currently positioned at the Selat Pau anchorage in Singapore.
