Offshore staff

MUTTRAH, Oman – Topaz Energy and Marine has secured multi-year charters for nine offshore support vessels for Lukoil’s V.Filanovsky project in the Russian sector of the Caspian Sea. The contract value is around $20 million.

Main offshore contractor Saipem will use the vessels to support oil and gas field development. They will provide anchor-handling and tug services, and transport of supplies and personnel.

Recently, Topaz mobilized two newbuild anchor-handling tug supply vessels to projects in the Azeri offshore sector. Topaz Dignity is on long-term contract with BP, while Topaz Triumph is supporting Total’s seismic campaigns ahead of field development.

Both are 7,300-hp vessels equipped for fire-fighting Class 1 and DP-2 operations.
