Shipping company Siem Offshore has been awarded charter contracts for eight vessels for work across four continents.
Namely, Siem said on Friday that it found work for four anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels, two platform suppliers (PSVs), and two offshore subsea construction vessels (OSCVs).
The Siem Aquamarine and Siem Topaz AHTS vessels will support BHP Billiton with its upcoming drilling work west of Australia. According to Siem, the firm period of the contract is 240 days.
The second pair of AHTS vessels, the Siem Garnet and Siem Sapphire, were chartered by Gazprom for operations on its Sakhalin project for a firm period of 440 days.
Siem Louisa and Siem Sasha PSVs will begin a firm contract for 290 days at the end of April on the west coast of Africa for an unnamed client.
The two OSCVs, the Siem Marlin and Siem Spearfish, have already started their contracts. The Siem Marlin is on a 150 days charter in South America while the Siem Spearfish is on a 100 days charter in the Black Sea. Both are working for undisclosed clients.
