Fossil Energy – Drilling Campaign
Atlantic Towing announced that term charters have been secured with returning client Equinor Canada.
These charters are for three of AHTS vessels, the Atlantic Kestrel, the Atlantic Merlin, and the Atlantic Kingfisher.
The vessels will form the entire support vessel fleet for Equinor’s exploration drilling campaign, which will utilize the semi-submersible drilling rig West Hercules from Seadrill.
The project is seeking a minimum of two wells offshore of Newfoundland & Labrador, in the Flemish Pass.
“The Atlantic Kestrel and the Atlantic Kingfisher have previously supported Equinor Canada in offshore Newfoundland & Labrador drilling campaigns,” says Sheldon Lace, General Manager of Atlantic Towing. “We are proud to work alongside a valued customer once more and continue to build relationships based on high-quality service, a commitment to safety, and exceptional crews. “
The contract is expected to begin in April 2022
