Monday, February 10, 2014

Topaz Energy and Marine, a leading offshore support vessel company with primary operations in the Middle East and Caspian, has announced the expansion of its West African operations with the award of two PSV contracts worth $50 million (USD).


The contracts are to supply one of the world’s leading international oil companies with two 3,300 DWT Platform Supply Vessels to support its offshore production operations. The contracts are worth $50 million including options and bring Topaz’s total contract backlog to approximately $1.2 billion.


The vessels were commissioned by Topaz in 2013 in view of visible demand and in pursuit of Topaz’s strategy of offering clients a modern and technologically advanced fleet of vessels.  The vessels are equipped with the latest technology including dynamic positioning DP2.


The average age of Topaz’s fleet is now 7.1 years against an industry average of around 15 years. The total Topaz fleet numbers 93 excluding four vessels under construction.


René Kofod-Olsen, CEO, Topaz Energy and Marine, said, “As part of our strategy, Topaz is pursuing growth outside of our home markets of the Middle East and the Caspian, with West Africa being one of our key target regions. These are important contracts for Topaz because of West Africa’s strategic significance. We believe we have the right fleet and the management expertise to create a long-term sustainable business in West Africa, always in partnership with local businesses. The region is forecast to see above market growth in industry activity and OSV demand which we hope to capitalize upon.”
