ABU DHABI, UAE – Gulf Marine Services has secured a decommissioning contract for one of its self-elevating support vessels in the North Sea.

The vessel, which has been supporting well service and maintenance work in the southern North Sea for an international oil company since 3Q 2012, will move to support that operator’s decommissioning work, also in the southern North Sea.

GMS said that the vessel will proceed directly from the current project this summer to the decommissioning work.

The revised contract has a committed term through to 1Q 2016 and an option period that has been extended from six months to 12 months.
