Maersk Supply Service Wins Chevron Australia Gig

Maersk Supply Service has been awarded a contract with Chevron Australia which will see two of its newbuild anchor handling tug supply vessels support the Chevron- operated Gorgon Stage Two drilling programme.

Maersk Mariner and Maersk Master will provide towing, anchor handling, supply, and WROV services for the programme in the Northwest Shelf of Western Australia starting in Q2 2019.

We are proud to have the opportunity to utilise the advanced capabilities of these new vessels to deliver a superior service and contribute to the offshore development of this important project for the region,” says David Lofthouse, Head of Commercial Asia Pacific, Maersk Supply Service.

Maersk Mariner and Maersk Master have been working in Western Australia since September 2017 and March 2018 respectively, where they will remain until the contract begins. Throughout the programme, both vessels will be operated by local crews and supported from Maersk Supply Service’s Perth shorebase.

Maersk Mariner and Maersk Master are the first two vessels of Maersk Supply Service’s Starfish newbuilding series, designed to minimise fuel consumption while maximising reliability and onboard safety. Following their delivery in 2017, three more vessels of the series have joined the fleet, with the final scheduled for delivery in early 2019.
