Maersk Supply får god kontrakt i Australien


Maersk Supply Service har fået kontrakt med Chevron Australia, for to nybyggede AHTS fartøjer, Maersk Mariner og Maersk Master, der skal sørge for bugsering, ankerhåndtering, forsyning og WROV-service til boreprogrammet i den nordvestlige del af Vest-Australien fra og med 2. kvartal 2019.

”Vi er stolte over at få mulighed for at udnytte kapaciteterne fra disse nye fartøjer til at levere en sublim service og bidrage til offshoreudviklingen af dette vigtige projekt for regionen”, siger David Lofthouse, chef for Commercial Asia Pacific, Maersk Supply Service.

Maersk Mariner og Maersk Master har arbejdet i Western Australia siden henholdsvis september 2017 og marts 2018, hvor de forbliver, indtil den nye kontrakt begynder. I løbet af programmet skal begge fartøjer opereres af lokale besætninger og støttes af Maersk Supply Service's kystbase i Perth.

Maersk Mariner og Maersk Master er de to første skibe i Maersk Supply Service's Starfish nybygningsserie, der er designet til at minimere brændstofforbrug, maksimere pålidelighed og sikkerhed ombord. Efter 2017, har endnu tre fartøjer i serien sluttet sig til flåden, med det sidste planlagt til levering først i 2019.

PGS Expands Massive Malaysia Sabah MC3D

Phase 4 of the multisensor Sabah MultiClient 3D is underway with Ramform Hyperion. Sabah is one of the largest MultiClient projects worldwide and the first ever in Malaysia.

Acquisition has begun. PGS will acquire up to 10 000 sq.km of GeoStreamer data, adding to the existing 37 000 sq. km multi-phased Sabah MC3D, which is already one of the world’s largest MultiClient acquisition projects.

The Sabah MultiClient 3D lies offshore the northwest of Sabah, Malaysia, within a proven petroleum system with enormous potential. In 2018, a discovery well in the Sabah Trough became a new play opener, yet this is still ranked as one of the least explored basins in the world. The new discovery lies within the footprint of Sabah MC3D.

The uplift in quality provided so far by the multisensor broadband seismic data, in Sabah phases 1-3, has allowed clear delineation of the seismic facies within the complex Miocene-Pliocene fold and thrust belt. The deeper sections below the fold and thrust belt have been clearly imaged for the first time, enabling a better understanding of the basin development and deeper targets.

Across the Sabah Trough and in the area over the Dangerous Grounds the new seismic reveals numerous potential prospects, many with direct hydrocarbon indicators (DHI) similar to that of the recent discovery well.

Phase 4 extends further outboard into the Dangerous Grounds, where more basins can be seen. This new dataset will extend the petroleum exploration playground for oil companies interested in Asia.

The Sabah MC3D sets a new benchmark for high-quality regional datasets that will not only improve understanding of the regional petroleum systems but also allow prospect scale AVO analysis of prospects and leads within the entire offshore Sabah Basin.

«Norsea Fighter» skal på oppdrag i Russland

Ny kontrakt for «Norsea Fighter» som eies av Norsea Group.

Det 2012-bygde plattform forsyningsskipet «Norsea Fighter», tidligere «Viking Fighter», har sikret seg et oppdrag i Karahavet i Russland.

Fartøyet er hyret inn av et russisk seismikkselskap til et oppdrag for Gaszprom med en fast varighet på 90 dager pluss opsjoner.

Oppstart er beregnet til midten av juni i år.

«Norsea Fighter» er eid av Stavanger-baserte Norsea Group og driftes av Vestland Management.

Dette er tredje året Vestland Management skal jobbe for det russiske seismikkselskapet.

I 2017-regnskapet til eierselskapet, Viking Fighter, ble skipet bokført til 243 millioner kroner. Til forskjell fra mange andre supplyskip er det ikke foretatt nedskrivninger knyttet til «Norsea Fighter».

Siden levering fra STX Brattvaag i 2012 har skipet med et dekksareal på 840 kvadratmeter bidratt med overskudd hvert år utenom i oppstartsåret.

Skipet seiler nå under Bahamas-flagg.
