Maersk inks ExxonMobil, Petrobras deals

Four contracts: Maersk Nomad and three other units taken by ExxonMobil and Petrobras in new deals or extensions

Maersk Supply Service has tied up a quartet of deals with oil stalwarts ExxonMobil and Petrobras worth almost $260 million.

The Danish outfit has fixed two of its platform supply vessels to US supermajor ExxonMobil for at least two years each for work off Australia.

The Maersk Nomad will have to undergo extensive modification work, including the installation of a 125-tonne crane, in order to perform subsea work at the Jansz field. It will be delivered to ExxonMobil in April, whereas the Maersk Nexus is already in Australian waters.

Brazilian oil giant Petrobras has come in for a pair of Maersk’s anchor-handling tug supply units for four years apiece in contract extensions.

Both the Maersk Blazer and the Maersk Boulder will start the extensions from February off Brazil.

Upstream's sister publication T radeWinds reported in November that Petrobras had booked the vessels at $45,750 and $46,400 per day respectively.
