Renaissance wins Nigeria vessel contract
Muscat, April 25, 2011
Topaz Energy and Marine, a subsidiary of Oman-based oilfield services firm Renaissance Services, said it has clinched a two-vessel contract in offshore Nigeria.
The marine support services company has mobilised two anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels - Topaz Johor and Topaz Jurong - for an eight-month contract to support operations in the Atlas, Mira and Brittania fields offshore Nigeria on behalf of Axxis Petroconsultants.
The award constitutes a new market entry for Topaz in the strategically important and buoyant West African offshore sector, said a top official.
Commenting on the win, Fazel A. Fazelbhoy, CEO of Topaz, said, “This award fits well with our expansion plan and is significant since it lays the first cornerstone of Topaz’s strategic presence in the region.
'We believe the West African offshore sector has immense potential for growth and we look forward to further exploring market opportunities during the course of the year,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
