Danish-based Viking Supply Ships reported Wednesday that the firm has entered into a contract with a major oil company for the charter of an anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel "Tor Viking" in the Far East region.

Under the charter, Tor Viking will commence operations for the client in June 2014. The contract will be for a duration of 11 months firm, plus options to extend the contract for another two 6 months period subject to availability.

The contract value of the firm period is around $34.5 million.
