Maersk Supply lands Shell job off Brazil

Maersk Achiever, along with one or two Maersk L-class anchor-handling tug supply vessels, to support supermajor's FPSO Fluminense

Danish vessel owner Maersk Supply Service has secured a contract for work off Brazil with supermajor Shell.

Under the deal, Maersk Supply will provide an integrated mooring lines life extension solution for Shell’s floating, production, storage and offloading Fluminense, including project management, engineering, interface management and offshore execution off the coast of Rio de Janeiro state.

With the offshore phase expected to commence in December, the project includes heading control of the FPSO, replacement of mooring lines, as well as installation and hook up of the new mooring components.

The contractor’s Maersk Achiever, along with one to two Maersk L-class anchor-handling tug supply vessels, will mobilise to Brazil following the completion of another mooring lines replacement project offshore West Africa.

“From the start of the engineering phase, we have set up a centralised project team together with our customer to ensure seamless alignment,” Maersk Supply’s head of integrated solutions, Olivier Trouve, said.

“We look forward to demonstrating how our ability to plan and execute the full range of scopes required for FPSO moorings maintenance, supplying all vessels from our large in-house fleet, can help reduce risk and optimise operations for our customers,” Trouve.

The value of the deal has not been disclosed.

Earlier this week, Maersk Supply secured a further contract off Mexico to deploy one of its subsea construction support vessels for state-owned oil company Pemex.
