Norwegian OSV operator Solstad Offshore entered into a contract with Woodside for the provision of six vessels.
The vessels, made up of two anchor handlers and four PSVs, Normand Saracen, Far Senator, Normand Leader, Normand Skimmer, Normand Swan and Far Seeker, will provide marine services for several offshore drilling campaigns in Australian waters.
The contracts have a combined firm period of 1100 vessel-days, and will commence in December. Woodside also has options for a further combined 3000 optional vessel-days.
“This is an exciting collaboration that supports both the Woodside and Solstad low emissions strategy, whilst providing a comprehensive vessel package consisting of six high quality vessels from a single Marine Partner. We would like to thank Woodside for this unique opportunity, and we look forward to a safe and efficient campaign,” said Solstad CEO Lars Peder Solstad.
