Petrobras contracts DOF trio

Written by  OE Staff Tuesday, 31 January 2017 11:28

DOF subsidiary Norskan Offshore has secured three contracts with Brazilian giant Petrobras.

The first, is a one plus one year contract for the Skandi Botafogo, which is set to start 15 February. Skandi Botafogo is an anchor handling tug supply vessel, UT 722L, built in Brazil.

Norskan further secured two contracts with Petrobras for the Skandi Leblon and Skandi Flamengo for 365 days and 668 days, respectively.

The vessels are both platform supply vessels sold in 2015, however Norskan retained market risk on contract renewal for these vessels after sale.

"It is very satisfactory that Norskan continues to secure long-term contracts for our Brazilian fleet," said Mons S. Aase, CEO, DOF. "In 2016 we had low utilization for Skandi Flamengo. These new awards secures a higher backlog for these vessels in 2017 compared to 2016."
