UK exploration & production company Premier Oil has chartered a Vroon Offshore supply vessel to support its offshore drilling operations in the UK Sector of the North Sea.
According to the Dutch shipping company, Premier Oil has hired its supply vessel VOS Patience to support the Ensco 123 jack-up rig drilling operations.
The term contract commenced at the end of July and is scheduled to continue into the fourth quarter of 2019, said Vroon Offshore Services.
It follows a successful period operating on the North Sea spot market, during which the vessel supported a number of clients.
VOS Patience is one of a series of six PX121-type platform-supply vessels (PSV), constructed for Vroon at the COSCO Guangdong Shipyard in China. Their Ulstein-patented X-BOW design ensures smoother vessel movements, optimal fuel efficiency and maximum comfort on board. Built in 2017, this modern PSV is managed by VOS Den Helder.
