North Sea supply vessel market remains flat News
// December 20, 2002
Offshore Shipbrokers Ltd (OSL) reports that November was a slow month in the North Sea with few enquiries and bad weather keeping ships in port - the port of Aberdeen was actually closed for a number of days due to the easterly gales. In mid December there was a more activity, however rates for anchor handlers were still only in the £6,000/8,000 range.
The slow down in activity has owners considering laying up their vessels with both the NorthernSeeker and Toisa Leopard heading in that direction, reported OSL, which said that the sinking of the tanker Prestige offshore Spain has taken some tonnage away with the Northern Corona, Far Scout and Sefton Supporter having been deployed for pollution duties.
"Several vessels are heading for warmer climates with the Highland Bugler going to India, Aldomaheading for the Mediterranean whilst Statesman will head south for Brazil in early January," said OSL. "Far Sovereign and Far Saltire will also leave however Owners are keeping their destination secret. In the opposite direction Maersk Trinity has returned to the North Sea."
