Norskan has further secured two contracts with Petrobras for Skandi Leblon and Skandi Flamengo for 365 days and 668 days respectively. The vessels are two PSV's sold in 2015, however Norskan retained market risk on contract renewal for these vessels after sale.
"It is very satisfactory that Norskan continues to secure long term contracts for our Brazilian fleet. In 2016 we had low utilization for Skandi Flamengo. These new awards secures a higher backlog for these vessels in 2017 compared to 2016" says Mons S. Aase.
