The charter extensions were awarded to PSVs, Sea Flyer and Sea Forth, Solstad said on Monday.

The two vessels have been supporting Apache since January 2014. They were previously owned by Deep Sea Supply before its merger with Solstad and Farstad in 2017.

The contract extensions are one-year firm plus options, starting in January 2020. This is in direct continuation of the present contract. The previous extension was agreed back in February 2017.

Both vessels are of a PX 105 design built in 2013 by Zhejiang Shipbuilding in China.
