Solstad Offshore said on Thursday that the award was a call off from a previously established frame agreement.

According to the company, the contract will begin during the fourth quarter of 2019 and will have an estimated duration of 120-200 days.

Solstad Offshore added that the contract would be covered by the large platform supply vessel (PSV) Normand Skude.

The Normand Skude is a PSV of a VS 485 design. It was built by Kleven in 2015.

In related news, Wintershall’s Norwegian subsidiary also gave an extension earlier this week to Golden Energy Offshore Services’ platform supplier Energy Swan. The parties agreed that the vessel would remain firm on charter in direct continuation of the present firm period for an additional eight months until July 31, 2020.
