Total E&P Nigeria has awarded Golden Energy Offshore, a Norway-based shipowner and operator of offshore service vessels, a three-month contract for one of its platform supply vessels (PSVs).
Golden Energy said on Monday that the contract for the Energy Scout PSV also has option periods of three months each. The company did not specify how many optional periods are included in the contract.
The new contract is in direct continuation of a present contract awarded by Total in late-August last year. The initial contract was for six months with six-month extension options each.
The several last contracts for the vessel were for Total in Africa, with the charters coming from Total E&P Nigeria, Total E&P Angola, and Total E&P Congo for general supply duties.
The vessel is a UT 755-L design and is a mechanically driven supply ship built by Brevik Construction and delivered in 2005. The vessel is designed for field supply & ROV duties, equipped with four thrusters and DP 2 class dynamic positioning system and is meant for all kind of offshore services.
The vessel is built with an integrated system of two passive stabilizing tanks below the main deck to minimize roll. This allows it to remain along the platforms in heavier weather.
