New Gulf of Mexico gig for Prosafe unit
Offshore accommodation rig provider Prosafe has secured work for one of its units with an undisclosed player in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
Prosafe informed on Thursday that it has been issued a letter of award, subject to a final contract, to provide accommodation and construction support using the Safe Concordia for a project in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
The rig provider explained that the duration of the contract starting Q2/Q3 2023 is approximately one year. The contract has an approximate value of $33 million.
The 2005-built Safe Concordia, which was constructed at Keppel FELS shipyard in Singapore, is a DP2 semi-submersible ASV with 389 (461 with ALQ) beds for worldwide operations excluding Norway. The vessel received an upgrade in July 2015.
Currently, this vessel is providing gangway-connected operations for BP Trinidad and Tobago at Cassia Compression (Cassia C) project offshore Trinidad, following a contract extension.
Prosafe’s contract with BP in Trinidad was secured in February 2022 for the duration of 160 days plus up to four weeks of options, which BP exercised in July.
