NEPTUNE Energy today announced the award of a £10 million three-year vessel services contract to Sentinel Marine, to provide offshore support for its operated Cygnus gas field in the UK southern North Sea.
The contract, awarded following a competitive tendering process, will see Sentinel Marine continue to deploy its Multi Role, Emergency Response & Rescue (MRERR) vessel, Cygnus Sentinel, on the gas field. The vessel will also support an upcoming drilling campaign on the Cygnus field.
The Cygnus Sentinel’s fuel-efficient, multi-role specification enables the vessel to provide both emergency response and platform supply services, thereby reducing costs and CO2emissions, and maximising efficiency.
Neptune Energy’s UK Country Director, Alan Muirhead, said: “The MRERRV has an essential role in supporting safe operations at Cygnus. Sentinel Marine has been supporting operations at Cygnus since 2014 and we are pleased to continue working together to maintain safe and efficient operations.”
The contract includes two one-year extensions.
