Nexans Extends Charter with GC Rieber

Norwegian offshore vessels provider, GC Rieber Shipping, has secured a charter extension with Nexans Skagerrak, a subsidiary of subsea cables specialist Nexans Norway, for the CSV Polar King.

The first time charter agreement announced in March this year, was set for a fixed period of about 8.5 months, plus option for extension, scheduled to start in January 2017.

According to GC Rieber’s Oslo Stock Exchange notice, Nexans has now exercised a 13-months option of extension, effective from September 2017.

This extension should secure vessel utilization through September 2018, with options for further extension at a later stage, the company said.

As previously informed, the vessel will carry out survey, trenching and cable laying works in Norway, the North Sea, the Mediterranean and Canada.

The Polar King joined GC Rieber’s fleet in March 2011 following its construction at Freire Shipyard in Spain.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
