The vessels Geosea, Geobay and Geosounder are now dedicated to, and operated out of DOF Subsea Asia and ideally positioned to meet demand in the region's buoyant offshore market.
DOF Subsea Asia Pacific has had a strong start to the year with news of awards for its fleet and related services; the total value of work secured to date exceeds USD33M.
Arriving in Singapore on 20 January 2008 Geobay, having been relocated from the North Sea, has been contracted to Coogee Resources Pty Ltd. The programme of work starts in early February, 2008 and includes IRM and light construction support works in the Joint Development Area of the Timor Sea. The work is expected to continue up through June.
On completion of existing campaign work in the Gulf of Thailand, Geosea, sailed directly to Australia's North West Shelf under carter to Woodside Energy Ltd, to undertake a saturation diving campaign at the beginning of March.
And lastly, the Geosounder as of second week of February is on hire with The Finding Sydney Foundation to perform survey, positioning and personnel services in the continued search for the wreckage of HMAS Sydney II.
Says CEO, Mons Aase, "I am very happy to see that Geobay which just recently arrived in the region is immediately chartered out in the market at very attractive prices."
Adding to this, Steve Brown Managing Director for DOF Subsea in Asia states that the market in the region is very strong and DOF Subsea is well positioned to take advantage of this with it's modern fleet of vessels.
