Telford Offshore awarded contracts for three vessels by Protexa

Dubai-based offshore services provider Telford Offshore has been awarded pipelaying and construction services contracts by Mexico’s Protexa.

Protexa is chartering Telford’s multipurpose vessels Telford 31, Telford 34 and Telford 28, for a combined 400 days, and the vessels will be deployed on a shallow-water engineering, procurement, construction and installation project for multiple lightweight offshore platforms and pipelines in the Gulf of Mexico.

Duncan MacPherson, COO of Telford Offshore, commented: “These significant shallow water contracts awarded by Protexa illustrates the versatility of our fleet of DP3 vessels, which are capable of supporting multiple activities, focusing on high capacity accommodation combined with pipelay, lifting, subsea and installation services. Having three units deployed in the Mexican market reflects our commitment to support one of our long-standing clients and confirms that our service delivery to Protexa during the last year has exceeded expectations.”
