The scope includes assistance to the semisubmersible accommodation vessel Safe Zephyrus and the jackup drilling rig Maersk Interceptor.

Deep Sea Mooring, which has already installed the pre-lay system for the Safe Zephyrus, will provide mooring and pre-lay equipment; offshore personnel; mobilization and demobilization services; and operational planning.

The vessel is due to remain at the field until the end of January, with an option to extend until June 2017.
