Norwegian shipping firm Eidesvik Offshore has secured a contract extension from compatriot energy firm Equinor for one of its LNG-powered PSVs.

According to a statement by Eidesvik, Equinor has declared options to extend the contract for the LNG dual-fuel 2003-built supply vessel, Viking Energy.

The contract extension runs from April 2025, extending the firm period to April 2030.
