Maersk Supply Service has won three new major contracts with the Brazilian state owned oil company Petrobras. The total contract value is approximately DKK 1.6 billion.

All three contracts will have a duration of four years commencing December 2012 and include anchor handling tug supply vessels Maersk Leader, Maersk Lancer, and Maersk Launcher.

The vessels will be involved in ultra deep water anchor handling with both conventional and torpedo anchors.

"Brazil is a strategically important growth market for Maersk Supply Service, and these contracts reinforce our strong relationship with one of the industry leaders in deep water exploration and production," says Carsten Plougmann Andersen, CEO of Maersk Supply Service.

Maersk Supply Service has a significant position in the Brazilian market with currently 11 vessels operating offshore Brazil for Petrobras and five vessels for international oil companies. Petrobras is Maersk Supply Service's biggest customer.

"We have been working with Petrobras since 1977 in ever increasing water depths requiring high safety, environmenta, specialized operational performance and the most advanced and powerful vessels. We look forward to continue the deep water-journey together," said Mr Andersen.
