TechnipFMC and its JV partner DOF Subsea have been awarded significant long-term charter and services contracts on Aug. 31 by Petrobras for the pipelay support vessels Skandi Vitória and Skandi Niteroi.
The Brazilian-built and flagged vessels are owned by DOFCON Navegação Ltda, a 50/50 JV between TechnipFMC and DOF Subsea. Each contract is for three years, with an option to extend.
Operations are expected to begin by February 2022. Skandi Niteroi will operate mostly in shallow water, while Skandi Vitória will work in shallow and deep water. Both vessels will perform decommissioning and subsea installation work.
“Our vessels serve as an important component of the strong flexible pipe ecosystem we have in Brazil,” Jonathan Landes, president of subsea at TechnipFMC, said. “We are proud to extend our multi-decade relationship with Petrobras through these long-term contracts, which are built on close collaboration and our client’s trust in our ability to safely and efficiently deliver quality.”
For TechnipFMC, a “significant” contract is between $75 million and $250 million.
