Malaysia-based international offshore oil field services provider, Bumi Armada Berhad, has secured a five-year charter and operations contract for its accommodation workboat, Armada Firman 3.
The contract award comes from a Mexican company, Tecnologias Relacionadas con Energia y Servicios Especializados S.A. de C.V. (TRESE)
Armada Firman 3, built by Drydock-World Singapore in 2009, will provide accommodation and offshore services to support oil field activities in the Mexican territorial waters.
