Eidesvik sells seismic vessel

Norway’s shipowner Eidesvik Offshore has signed a memorandum of agreement to sell a seismic vessel.

The vessel, Viking II, owned by the company’s subsidiary Eidesvik Shipping, will be sold to an unnamed buyer for an undisclosed fee.

Eidesvik said in a statement on Thursday that a deposit had been lodged and the delivery would take place in Q3/Q4 2015.

“The sale is done close to book value of the vessel,” Eidesvik said. “The vessel will not be used for seismic work with the new owner,” the company added.

The vessel, built by Mjellem Karlsen in Bergen, Norway, entered service in June 1999. Prior to the sale, the vessel worked for years for the French seismic specialist CGG. Radar data shows the Viking II is currently moored in Batam, Indonesia.
