Topaz awarded Maersk Oil Qatar contract


Topaz Energy and Marine subsidiary DMS has been awarded a five-year vessel contract with five one-year options estimated to be worth US$48 million including the option period. Under the contract, the offshore support vessel 'Topaz Shaheen' will serve as a standby support vessel for Maersk Oil Qatar in the Al Shaheen Field in Qatar.

The vessel has previously been working for Maersk providing services such as anchor handling, personnel transfer as well as acting as a safety standby vessel for rescue operations and firefighting. Upon successful completion of a one-year stint with Maersk in Qatar, the vessel was awarded a long-term contract.

The 'Topaz Shaheen' is currently undergoing a significant upgrade to enhance the vessel's capabilities in the field and make her capable of dynamic positioning operations and oil spill recovery. She will also be able to undertake remote operated vehicle (ROV) and survey support operations. The vessel will be deployed back to the field later this month.
