Report: Simon Møkster’s PSV duo stays with Aker BP

Stril Orion

Norwegian oil company Aker BP has reportedly extended contracts for two platform supply vessels owned by compatriot shipping company Simon Møkster Shipping.

According to VesselsValue, a website providing intel on the offshore and shipping world, Aker BP extended charter deals for the Stril Orion and Stril Polar for a term of three months each.

The contracts were fixed on January 10 and include three one-month options. No financial details of the deals were disclosed.

Although fixed on the same date, the contracts have different start and end dates. Namely, the Stril Orion began its contract on the fixing day and will complete it on April 9.

The Stril Polar will begin its contract on February 1 and finish the term deal, if no extension options are used, on April 30.

According to the latest AIS data, the Stril Orion is located near the Transocean Arctic drilling rig in the North Sea while the Stril Polar is located near the Maersk Interceptor semi-sub working on the Tambar field.

The Stril Orion initially started working for the Norwegian oil company in 2015, chartered by Det Norske before its merger with BP Norge into Aker BP. Its sister vessel, the Stril Polar, began working for the company in 2016 as a substitute for the Orion during its five-year classing.

Since then, both vessels remained working for the company with the most recent contract extension for the pair coming in July 2017. The extension was for five months firm, with options, starting from August 1, 2017.

The two sister vessels are of an STX PSV 09L CD design. The Stril Polar was delivered in February 2012 while the Stril Orion was delivered in October 2011. Both vessels are 93.5 meters long and 19 meters wide.
