Reference is made to the notice dated 11 November 2019. SeaBird have now received a letter of award for provision of source services for two OBN surveys to be carried out in West Africa, with an expected total duration of about 80 days. The first survey is expected to start in April 2020 and the second survey will follow immediately after. SeaBird will use the Eagle Explorer for both surveys.
The time charter agreement with EMGS for the Petrel Explorer originally contained two options for EMGS to extend the contract by 6 months each. The first of these two options has been converted to 6 monthly options. EMGS has declared the first option, meaning that the charter period for the Petrel Explorer is now firm until 30 April 2020.
