With the search for energy reaching ever deeper waters, our customers are increasingly requiring specialist dynamic positioning (DP) expertise. Often it is not possible to lay pipelines in these new oil fields and our customers are seeking to charter DP capable offtake tankers to service their well heads.
Off the coast of Brazil we currently own two DP shuttle tankers for the national oil company on a long-term basis.
In the North/Barents Sea, we own two highly specialised 120,000 dwt DP shuttle tankers. These vessels are winterised in accordance with the DNV notation, and are fitted with twin skegs, twin engines and a new generation bow-loading system.
These two vessels operate under long-term contract to Norwegian global energy company Statoil, and are technically managed by OSM Shipmanagement.
