DOF nets new deal with Petrobras in Brazil

Offshore vessel operator DOF has won a contract for its Brazilian-built pipe-laying support vessel (PLSV) Skandi Niterói from the oil company Petrobras. 

DOF said on Monday that the contract is for approximately 8 months firm, and with 8 months options.

The company added that the contract will start immediately.

Mons S. Aase, CEO, stated, “I am very pleased with the contract award, securing utilization in a challenging market and maintaining our strong position in the Brazilian market.”

Back in 2011, a joint venture between DOF and Technip was awarded a flexible pipelay contract by Petrobras for the Skandi Niterói vessel. The vessel was awarded a four and a half year contract for flexible pipelines installation and retrieval offshore Brazil.

Skandi Niterói is an ROV construction support vessel of a STX OSCV 06 design built in 2011. The vessel is designed for pipelay, subsea construction, installation and maintenance work and can operate in water depths reaching 2,300 m.
