    Seascope Offshore reports that BP is scheduled to retain a fleet of five large PSVs for the majority of 2007 – namely Normand Aurora (P105), Maersk Fighter (UT745), Maersk Feeder (UT745), Maersk Fetcher (UT745) and Maersk Forwarder (UT745).

    In addition, the first of the company's four Chinese-built RSVs -Caledonian Victory, Caledonian VanguardCaledonian Vision, Caledonian Vigilance – is reportedly in rescue and recovery mode supporting multi-locations in the Central North Sea as the significantly delayed ‘Project Jigsaw’ finally starts to be phased in.

    In the South North Sea, BP have sublet the medium sized PSV ER Bergen (VS470MkII) from Lundin Petroleum to support a 1-3 well programme on the Amethyst Field with Ensco 92. The vessel has been on charter to Lundin since April 2006.
