New Vessel Sharing Scheme for CNNS Region Launched

Peterson together with Maersk Oil North Sea UK, Petrofac and Dana Petroleum have launched a new vessel sharing scheme for the Central and Northern North Sea (CNNS) region.

Operating out of Peterson’s Waterloo Quay facility in Aberdeen the vessel pool currently has two weekly sailings, serving four assets; Maersk Oil’s Gryphon and Global Producer III (GPIII) FPSOs, Dana’s Triton FPSO and the FPF-1 of which Petrofac is duty holder.

This collaborative approach to supplying the offshore energy industry sees Peterson acting as an independent facilitator as well as vessel charterer.

The ‘Steering Group’ allows elected representatives from each of the partners to come together to set the high level pooling strategy and ensure each operator is fully and equally represented to ensure their needs can be properly planned into the port schedule.

Chris Coull, regional director for Peterson, said: “We are delighted to be working with like-minded, visionary companies who see the value in sharing resources and are pleased to be acting as pool facilitators and enabling the principle of a CNNS pool to come to reality.”

“We are looking forward to expanding our offering and have built our model in a way that we can easily expand as the market demand increases to include more pool partners. Other companies are watching the progress of this initiative with great interest and we trust we will welcome more forward-thinking organisations on board in the future.”

Les Mills, corporate logistics superintendent, Petrofac, added: “Reducing the cost of operations in the UKCS is a collective industry responsibility and Petrofac is absolutely committed to playing its part. We’re very excited to be part of this group bringing new levels of collaboration to the North Sea.”
