Bourbon Offshore has struck a deal with Oceanteam Power & Umbilical (OPU) to co-operate with each other over the supply of vessels and services.
The agreement is aimed to further expand the range of OPU services in combination with the wide range of specialised offshore support vessels from Bourbon. The initial focus will be on West Africa and the Middle East.
Bourbon and Oceanteam have recently been awarded a long term field support vessel contract with BP Angola for its Greater Plutonium development in Block 18.
"The further development of the relation, through a combination of market knowledge, experience, services and resources will allow both companies to enter into new market segments and regions," Bourbon said in a statement.
