Equinor has exercised the fourth of six available one-month options to extend Prosafe's accommodation vessel Safe Boreas at the Mariner project in the UK sector of the North Sea to accommodate personnel working on Mariner in the hook up and early production phase through October 2019.
Total value of the one-month option is approximately $5 million, Prosafe said in a press release on Friday.
The harsh environment Safe Boreas is equipped with a DP3 (dynamic positioning) system as well as 12 point mooring arrangement and has the capacity to accommodate 450 persons in single man cabins.
The Equinor-operated Mariner field came on stream earlier this week.
