The open stern, semisubmersible vessel Fjell will likely load the rig in early January, sailing immediately afterwards toward a yet to be determined northern European port. The contract value is $2.8 million.

Hylke van den Berg, director of Client Services for Fairstar, said: “Safely crossing the Bay of Biscay in January requires careful planning and experienced seamanship.”

Willem Out, COO, added: “Fleet utilization is now showing a significant improvement in the last few months. The Fjord is under way to the Gulf of Mexico with the Oando Energy Services rig Respect.

Fjord will proceed to Angola to commence its contract with DSME after discharging the Respect. Upon which…Fjord will perform her first scheduled voyage for the Gorgon LNG Project.”
