Norway-based shipowner Golden Energy Offshore Services has been awarded a contract extension for one of its platform supply vessels with Total in Nigeria.
As a reminder, Golden Energy at the end of June entered into a contract with Total E&P Nigeria for the platform supply vessel (PSV) Energy Scout for a firm period of three months plus optional periods of three months each.
In September, the vessel was awarded a three-month extension for work until January 1, 2018.
According to the vessel owner’s statement on Friday, the Energy Scout’s contract has now been further extended in direct continuation of the present firm contract.
The vessel is now firm until April 1, 2018, plus optional periods of three months each thereafter.
The vessel has been working for Total in Africa for quite some time now, with the last four charters coming from Total E&P Nigeria, Total E&P Angola, and Total E&P Congo for general supply duties.
Energy Scout is of 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 was 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.
