COSCOL Scores Rig Transport Deal with Shell Offshore

Chinese heavy-lift specialist COSCO Shipping Company Limited (COSCOL) has secured a contract with owner and operator of oil rigs Shell Offshore Inc. for the transportation of the Appomattox semi-submersible offshore platform hull from South Korea to Ingleside, Texas.

The contract, signed on 6 July 2015, was awarded as part of an Enterprise frame agreement between Shell and COSCOL. Details on the value of the contract have not been disclosed.

Shell’s 41,165 metric ton hull will be transported on COSCOL’s new-building 98,000 deadweight ton vessel, the Guang Hua Kou.

The Guang Hua Kou is currently under construction at the COMEC shipyard in Guangzhou, China and is expected to be delivered in late 2016 when it will start its service.
