Maersk Supply closes deal in Australia
Maersk Supply Service has signed a contract with Quadrant Energy for two Starfish vessels. From March 2018, Maersk Supply Service's two first Starfish-class anchor handling vessels, Maersk Master and Maersk Mariner, built in 2017, will be part of a Quadrant Energy contract in Western Australia.
"Qvadrant EnergY is an important client. We are pleased that our two newly built Starfish vessels, Maersk Master and Maersk Mariner, can cooperate on this project. It is a great opportunity to demonstrate their state-of-the-art capabilities that minimize environmental emissions and provide a high standard of safety and comfort for users, "says David Lofthouse, commercial director of the Asia Pacific.
The two ships will support Quadrant Energy's Phoenix South and Van Gogh drilling campaigns, which initially apply to three wells in a 150 to 200 day production. The very modern and efficient vessels will support Transocean's semisubmersible rig DD1 with supply and anchor handling tasks throughout the period.
Before Maersk Master arrives in Australia, the vessel has worked in the North Sea on a shutdown project, while Maersk Mariner came to Australia in August 2017 as part of a contract for another company.
