Subsidiaries of Norwegian shipping company DOF have been awarded vessel contracts by Nexen and Petrobras.
DOF ASA said on Tuesday that its subsidiary, DOF UK Limited, won an 18-month contract from oil company Nexen for the Skandi Barra platform supplier. The contract is scheduled to start in April.
The Skandi Barra is an MT 6000 MK II design platform supply vessel. The vessel joined the DOF fleet in 2005 and had been mostly working on contracts in the North Sea. The Skandi Barra is 85.7 meters long, 19.7 meters wide, and can accommodate 24 people.
The second contract was awarded to Norskan Offshore for the Skandi Botafogo anchor handling tug and supply vessel (AHTS). The one-year contract for the vessel, estimated to start in early June, was awarded by Petrobras.
Skandi Botafogo is an 80-meter-long, 18-meter-wide anchor handling tug supply vessel built in 2006. It is capable of accommodating 40 people.
It is worth mentioning that DOF and its subsidiaries have recently won a handful of contracts. Namely, DOF won deals for the Skandi Foula, Skandi Rona, Skandi Feistein, and Skandi Saigon vessels as well as a deal with Nexen for the support of the COSLPioneer rig hook-up operations.
Furthermore, DOF Subsea won contracts in the Atlantic region for the Skandi Neptune, Geosund, and Skandi Constructor vessels as well as a four-year global frame agreement for the provision of survey and positioning services on third-party vessels.
Finally, Two DOF ASA subsidiaries won contracts for the Skandi Commander vessel and one ROV.
