DOF Subsea has been awarded multiple contract awards from clients across the North America region
The group has secured a contract for pre-lay and long baseline acoustic positioning system array installation activities in Guyana, a contract for subsea installation work in Trinidad and well-head removal work in Canada.
The clients remain undisclosed for all three contract awards, with the work being carried out by Skandi Neptune.
Harvey Deep Sea, an offshore supply ship on long-term charter to DOF Subsea from Harvey Gulf International Marine, received an award for a large ocean bottom node survey in the Gulf of Mexico. This is in addition to other shorter IMR and light construction projects. The awards will ensure good utilisation across H1 2020 for the vessel.
Skandi Vitoria, the Brazilian-built PSLV jointly owned by DOF Subsea and TechnipFMC, was awarded a contract with TechnipFMC. The contract commenced in January with validity of two years plus options.
DOF chief executive Mons Aase said he was pleased with the contract award and to see the vessel operational again. Skandi Vitoria has been in lay-up since mid-2018.
These awards come days after the company was awarded several contracts for subsea work in the Asia-Pacific region.
