It has been chartered by Premier Oil Vietnam Offshore for the development of the Chim Sáo field for six years, optionally extendable by another six years. The charter contract is valued at around $1 billion.

The vessel will be delivered to PV Keez, a joint venture between Ezra Holdings, PetroVietnam Transportation Corp., EOC, and KSI Production.
