Norwegian oil and gas company Vår Energi and compatriot shipowner Simon Møkster Shipping have agreed to extend the charter of the Stril Luna platform supply vessel (PSV).

Simon Møkster said on Friday (Jul 05) that the contract for the vessel was extended by another 12 months. This means that the vessel will stay with Vår Energi from August 2019 until August 2020.

According to the company, the vessel will primarily continue its service as a pool vessel for Vår Energi in the southern regions of the North Sea.

The initial contract for the Stril Luna was awarded by Point Resources in September 2018, before its merger with Eni Norge into Vår Energi. The vessel took over for the Strilmøy offshore supply vessel.

The Strilmøy has previously supplied logistic and ERRV services for ExxonMobil before Point Resources took over all Exxon’s Norwegian assets in November 2017. Following the acquisition, the Strilmøy continued working for Point Resources. In total, the vessel worked for almost 13 consecutive years for Exxon and Point Resources.

Its successor – the Stril Luna – is a PSV delivered in August 2014. It is a 91-meter long, 20-meter wide vessel with a deck of 1,030 square meters
