Repsol Sinopec, an oil and gas E&P company operating in the North Sea, has hired Esvagt’s standby and rescue vessel, the Esvagt Kappa, for work in the UK North Sea.

According to a report from Clarksons Plateau, Repsol Sinopec chartered the vessel on a three-year deal with extension options.

Repsol Sinopec confirmed in an e-mail sent to Offshore Energy Today that the vessel was chartered by the company for work on the Claymore field. The spokesperson would not comment on details of the charter.

The Esvagt Kappa is a standby and rescue vessel approved by the MCA, UK as a Class B vessel for 300 survivors. It is 47.15 meters long and 11 meters wide with a deadweight of 505.84 metric tonnes.

Standby vessels, also referred to as Emergency Response and Rescue Vessels (ERRV), are mobilized to provide response and rescue support at one or more offshore facilities. The primary task of such vessels is the rescue of personnel from sea and subsequent care. Also, such vessels can be used as firefighting vessels.

The Esvagt vessel will operate on the Claymore complex located on the UK Continental Shelf some 161 kilometers northeast of Aberdeen in the North Sea.

The Claymore field was discovered in May 1974. The Claymore Production Platform was installed in 1976 with the first production from the Claymore field starting in November 1977.
