The contract extension, worth approximately US$ 96 million, has been secured with a reputable oil major client by a joint-venture company formed between Mermaid and local offshore services operator in a GCC country in the Middle East. The contract extension duration is for a firm one year plus a one-year option.
Mermaid Maritime Public Company Limited (Mermaid) announced yesterday that its joint venture company formed between Mermaid and a local offshore services operator has secured a contract extension for offshore inspection, repair and maintenance services with a national upstream oil and gas company following its initial five-year contract period, whereby Mermaid will continue to provide a suite of diving services using its modern DP2 saturation dive support vessel Mermaid Asiana along with remotely operated vehicles, specialized diving equipment and divers.
Mermaid’s joint venture partner, a reputable offshore and marine services company, will provide other offshore vessel related services and logistics.
