NigerStar 7 Boosts Fleet

NigerStar 7, a Nigerian joint venture company between Subsea 7 and Nigerdock, has acquired the pipelay vessel Seven Antares to boost its conventional, heavy-lifting and hook-up projects.

The acquisition of the Seven Antares adds up to other recent investments made by NigerStar 7 to strengthen its local fleet and its commitment to the development of Nigerian offshore oil and gas industry and reinforces the company’s role in the ownership of Nigerian flagged vessels.

Derek Izedonmwen, sales & marketing director of NigerStar 7, said: “The Seven Antares acquisition is a very important milestone for us. I’m deeply proud of this investment, as it reinforces NigerStar 7 commitment to invest in Nigeria through the acquisition of strategic local assets and to continue to invest and to develop our people. The Seven Antares is currently laying pipe for one of our clients and I’m sure she will be kept busy supporting the growth of Nigeria’s energy industry.”

The Seven Antares was built in 2009, has a 300t main crane capacity and is a 120t S-lay vessel with capacity to lay pipes of up to 60-inch diameter; with an accommodation area in excess of 330 berths and a deck area of over 1300m².
