Norwegian offshore vessel owner DOF Subsea has secured a two-year contract extension for the DP3 construction support vessel (CSV) Skandi Africa.

DOF said that the new contract will start ‘in direct continuation with the current contract’.

The subsea vessel is designed for harsh environment and deepwater subsea construction, as well as flexlay operations, said DOF Subsea.

DOF Subsea CEO Mons S Aase said: “Skandi Africa is the most sophisticated vessel in our fleet and we are looking forward to continue the journey, delivering successful installation campaigns.”

Skandi Africa began its five-year charter commitment, working on global projects for oil and gas company TechnipFMC.

Last month, DOF Subsea secured a long-term contract from the Petrobras-led Libra Consortium for operation activities on the Brazilian continental shelf at the Mero field.

The Mero field is owned by the Libra consortium, which is operated by Petrobras (40%) and includes Shell Brasil Petróleo (20%), Total E&P do Brasil (20%), CNODC Brasil Petróleo e Gás (10%), and CNOOC Petroleum Brasil (10%).

In September, DOF Subsea secured a marine operations turnkey contract with respect to a decommissioning project by FPSO operator Teekay Petrojarl.
