Gulf Marine Services, a provider of advanced self-propelled self-elevating support vessels (SESVs) serving the offshore oil, gas and renewable energy sectors, has announced a new contract award for one of its Mid-Size Class vessels.
The contract, scheduled to commence immediately, is for 12 months including options, with the vessel supporting a MENA-based national oil company (NOC).
In addition, a contract extension has been confirmed for one of the Group's Small Class vessels chartered to a different MENA-based NOC. The extended period, which has already commenced, is for 12 months, with a further one-year option period remaining.

We are very pleased that our strong client relationships, leading operational expertise and flexibility have enabled us to secure a new contract and a contract extension for two of our vessels."
