Smit Lamnalco DP2 AHTS vessel ‘SL Labuan’ has been contracted by Abu Dhabi Petroleum Ports Operating Company (IRSHAD) for a period of 22 months with further extension options. The vessel will be utilized to support maintenance activities for three Single Point Mooring (SPM) crude oil terminals offshore Fujairah-port, United Arab Emirates.

Mr. Khalifa Al Qubaisi, General Manager IRSHAD says: “The vessel has DP2 capabilities and sufficient deck area which makes the ‘SL Labuan’ ideally suited for such operations. The vessel will also have the ability to support Saturation Diving activities”. The SPM terminals at Fujairah are operated by Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO).

Vivek Seth, Smit Lamnalco Managing Director Middle East & Indian Subcontinent emphasises: “Smit Lamnalco is the leading provider of marine services in the midstream oil & gas segment and is committed to supporting the UAE oil and gas industry since 1963. We are excited to continue to be part of the success story and work with IRSHAD and ADCO in their SPM operations in Fujairah.”
