Soledad said on Thursday that Normand Service and Normand Supra vessels have been contracted for a period of two years firm plus two years option thereafter.

Both vessels will support Harbour Energy’s UK North Sea assets, with contracts starting during June 2021 and August 2021.

Both Normand Service and Normand Supra vessels are of a PX 105 design built in 2014 by Zhejijang Shipbuilding.

The Normand Supra vessel previously worked for Tullow in support of a one-well drilling campaign offshore Suriname. On the other hand, the Normand Service PSV was hired by Serica in March 2021 to support the jack-up rig Maersk Resilient on a UK North Sea well.

Harbour Energy was formed earlier this year through a merger between Premier Oil and Chrysaor.
