As part of the extension, the parties have agreed to use the AHTS Normand Ranger for a minimum of 80 days plus options on various projects in 2020, with expected beginning in April.

Solstad has also been awarded a contract with Repsol Sinopec Resources UK Limited, for the CSV Normand Jarl. The contract will start in May 2020 and have a firm duration of 105 days.

Repsol Sinopec Resources UK Limited will utilize the vessel to support the maintenance activities in the North Sea.
