The firm duration of the contract starting mid-April 2020 is 162 days with one 30-day option, Prosafe said on Wednesday.

Jesper Kragh Andresen, CEO of Prosafe said: “This contract for Prosafe is extremely important as Total continue to invest into the North Sea. In 2017 the Safe Caledonia conducted gangway connected operations at Elgin with unprecedented operational uptime – and we fully expect to deliver the same in 2020.

“For the Safe Caledonia to be available, the previously announced contract commencing mid-2020 will take delivery of either the Safe Boreas or Safe Zephyrus.”

The Safe Caledonia was built in 1982 at the GVA / Kockums yard in Sweden to a Pacesetter design and completed a 20-year life extension in 2012/13.

Elgin and Franklin are two high pressure/high temperature gas and condensate fields, which started production in 2001. They are located in the UK North Sea, approximately 240 kilometers east of Aberdeen, in Scotland. The Elgin field was discovered in 1991 and the Franklin field in 1986.
