Offshore accommodation unit Safe Scandinavia is to head to the UK sector of the North Sea under  a newly signed US $58.1 million deal.

Prosafe’s Scandinavia is signed up for a 187 day stay in the UK sector for an undisclosed client commencing in April 2013 providing operational support.

The total contract value for the firm period is $58.1 m, Oslo-listed Prosafe said today.

Prosafe has been awarded a contract by an undisclosed client for the provision of the Safe Scandinavia accommodation support rig at a project in the British sector of the North Sea. The firm period of the contract is 187 days with operations due to commence April 2013.

The total value of the contract for the firm period is about USD 58.1 million.

Safe Scandinavia commenced operations at the ConocoPhillips-operated Eldfisk field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea in April, and from 1 July started work at the BP Valhall field, instead of work which was originally planned for ConocoPhillips in the UK sector, Prosafe reported in an operational update earlier this month.
