Otto Marine in double PSV deal

Otto Marine Limited has secured two long term charter contracts for two Platform Service Vessels (PSV) to an “oil major in Australia”.

Under the contracts, two 4000 dwt capactiy PSVs will be mobilised to Australia in March – April 2015.

Otto Marine says that each of the two contracts secured comprises of a firm charter period and option, adding the total charter tenure of up to 36 months. Total contract value for the firm period and options for the two vessels is approximately AUD80 million (or approximately $64 million). With the latest orders, the Group’s net order book stood at approximately more than $400 million as at January 31, 2015.

Commenting on the charters, Michael See, Group Executive Director said:

“With the over 50% plunge in oil prices, investors were cautious with the industry as a whole. While oil companies are cutting back on their capital expenditure budget, certain operational activities are still active as usual, hence there is still demand for supporting vessels from trusted business partners.

“The new PSV charter contracts not just demonstrated our strong customer base and close relationships with leading global oil & gas companies, both NOCs and IOCs, but also the fact that our vessels and services are valued by our customers as we provide our utmost quality services to our customers.

“We work towards building up a leading OSV charterer in Indonesia, Australia, Mexico, Africa and beyond, a position that offers the benefit of geographical diversification, and helps us stand relatively intact in an adverse market. We will also continue to do our utmost amid one of the most challenging period for the industry, deliver the best possible service to our customers, and further enhance their trust and loyalty.”
