BG Group, Prosafe Agree New Program for Safe Bristolia Vessel

Offshore accommodation provider Prosafe said Friday that BG Group has agreed to re-phase the Safe Bristolia support vessel's 2015 work program, following repairs to the vessel over the winter.

In October 2014 the Safe Bristolia sustained damaged to lifeboats after experiencing bad weather during work at the Everest field in the UK North Sea. Operations were suspended and the vessel was taken to the Hanøytangen shipyard in Norway for repair work.

Prosafe said that operations at the Everest platform are now scheduled to commence in June 2015 for a firm period of four months. Then, from mid-May 2016 the Safe Bristolia will return to the platform for two months. Prosafe has also granted BG Group two additional 15-day options.

As a result of the re-phased firm period work program, the total value of the contract has been reduced to approximately $40 million, from the $68 million previously agreed, Prosafe added.
