Shelf Subsea has been extended the vessel contract for CSV Southern Ocean for five years until 2021. The extension was agreed after Shelf Subsea concluded a buy-out with Fugro.

 

 

CSV Bourbon Oceanteam 101 has started a new time charter contract in Angola. The contract is for a period of three years plus options.

 


Bond Refinancing

Oceanteam has not been able to secure alternative funding sources that would enable the company to refinance its bond.

As a result, the company said it has initiated a process to review all alternatives available in order to secure a sustainable financing solution.

According to Oceanteam, alternatives may include new debt and/or equity, restructuring of its current bond, as well as exploring other strategic options with the intention to present further details and a preliminary plan to shareholders, bondholders and other stakeholders by the end of 2016.
