Norway’s offshore shipowner DOF Group wins multiple contracts by Petrobras after a tender process. The group has revealed that Petrobras has awarded new long-term charter and service contracts to Norskan Offshore Ltda. and DOF Subsea Servicos Brasil Ltda, after a competitive tender process.

The contracts will generate revenue exceeding $192m, the shipowner said in a statement.

As it is disclosed by the company, the vessel Skandi Amazonas (324 t BP) that was on the spot market is chartered for three years firm with two years mutually agreed option via Petrobras tender issued late in 2023, to operate as a AHTS 270t BP.

The vessel is now in process to be adapted to Petrobras contract with expectations to be delivered by mid-May / mid-June 2024.

Furthermore, the vessel Skandi Rio (206 t BP), currently operating for Petrobras and equipped with DOF Subsea’s work class ROV, have been contracted for more four years firm plus one year option with Petrobras, as a AHTS 180t BP + ROV, via the same tender as Skandi Amazonas.

The contract commencement is planned within the third quarter of 2024 in sequence to the current contract.

Mons S. Aase, chief executive of DOF Group ASA, said: “Building backlog into 2028 at today’s strong market rates is positive and we look forward to continue delivering Petrobras quality services.”
