MMA Offshore secures vessel work off Australia and Ivory Coast
29 March 2018
Australia-based marine solutions provider MMA Offshore has been awarded two new term contracts, which will see several of its vessel operate offshore Australia and Ivory Coast.
MMA said on Wednesday that ConocoPhillips has awarded MMA a number of vessel contracts of up to ten months duration for a multi-vessel marine spread to support drilling and shutdown operations at Bayu-Undan project in the Timor Sea. Bayu-Undan is a gas-condensate field located 250 kilometers south west of Suai in Timor-Leste and 500 kilometers north west of the Northern Territory in Australia.
The award is for two platform supply vessels (PSVs) to provide supply support services for the duration of the drilling campaign, along with a number of anchor handling tug supply vessels (AHTS) to support shutdown, rig moves and additional supply scopes.
MMA noted that the contract will provide it with substantial revenue as well as utilization for a number of its vessels throughout the remainder of 2018 and into 2019.
In addition, MMA has secured a one-year contract for the vessel MMA Privilege with a “major independent crude oil and natural gas producer” to support a development project in offshore Ivory Coast. Read More
