Fairstar lines up heavy transport work

Worldwide delivery: Fairstar's Fjell completing South Korea transport before Australian contract

Nigerian fabricator Aveon Offshore has hired Fairstar Heavy Transport to take two power barges from Nigeria’s Bonny River to Chevron’s onshore asset gas management facility at Escravos.

Fairstar’s Fjell will head to Nigeria to provide the 12-day, $1.2 million transport at the end of next month after it has delivered the Hercules 185 rig to Angola.

The Oslo-listed, Rotterdam-based company’s Fjord vessel meanwhile is delivering components for the CLOV floating production, storage and offloading vessel in Okpo, South Korea.

The same vessel is to transport the first modules to Barrow Island in Australia for Chevron’s Gorgon liquefied natural gas project starting in May.
