Two of the six PSVs in the Blue Ship Invest fleet, ‘Blue Thunder’ and ‘Blue Guardian’, have been contracted for long-term work for Statoil.
‘Blue Thunder’ has been working for Statoil since April, and this contract ends on 23 January. Statoil has now entered into a new 6-month contract for this vessel, with two 3-month options.
‘Blue Guardian’, currently in the spot market for Statoil, has been contracted on the same conditions, and will start working for Statoil in the beginning of January.
A third Blue Ship vessel, ‘Blue Protector’, is also currently in the spot market for Statoil.
The other three vessels in the fleet are on long-term contracts for Apache and BG. The vessels were built in the period 2012-2013, and they have been very attractive since entering the market.
All six vessels are undergoing a change of ownership, as they were recently sold from Blue Ship Invest to Nordic American Offshore.
