Subsea 7 awarded Shell contract extension

Oslo: London headquartered Subsea 7 has been awarded a two-year extension to two underwater services contracts by Shell Upstream International Europe, valued at around $240m.

The extensions are for diving support vessel and remotely operated vehicle support vessel services, commencing in 2016, where Subsea 7 will continue to provide subsea construction, inspection, repair, maintenance and decommissioning services to Shell’s UK offshore fields and facilities.

The dive support contract will be delivered on a 24 hour, year-round basis while the remotely operated vehicle support services contract will cover a minimum of 100 vessel days per year.

Phil Simons, Subsea 7 vice president UK and Canada, said: “We are proud to have received these contract extensions. An award of this importance recognises our strong track record in providing Life of Field expertise and high quality vessels and safe and efficient operations to Shell since our support of their subsea operations began in 1984.”
