General – Contract Extension
Akastor’s subsidiary DDW Offshore has secured a contract extension with Petrofac for its AHTS vessel that will be put on the Northern Endeavour FPSO disconnection job offshore Australia.
Petrofac has now awarded DDW Offshore a 9-month extension of the existing contract in Australia whereby Skandi Emerald will replace Skandi Atlantic in March 2024.
The contract will last until year-end 2024. Skandi Emerald will continue to support the disconnection of the FPSO Northern Endeavour as well as assist towing and well isolation work on the Laminaria Corallina oil fields in the West Timor Sea.
After demobilisation in March, Skandi Atlantic will undergo its special survey for class renewal in Singapore and is expected to be available for new contract by end of April 2024.
