DeepOcean awarded extension of contract with Diavaz

Ciudad del Carmen, Mexico, April 8, 2013, – DeepOcean has been awarded a 20 months extension of the Atlantic Challenger contract with offshore contractor Constructora Subacuatica Diavaz, S.A. de C.V. (Diavaz), in Mexico.

DeepOcean was awarded the existing contract in 2011 and the Atlantic Challenger has been working in Mexican waters for many years under previous contracts with Diavaz. The vessel has proven to be a reliable and competitive asset for Diavaz in the topside and subsea construction support, inspection, maintenance and repair work for PEMEX. The award extends the contract until the end 2014.

“The extension of the contract confirms Diavaz’s continued trust in DeepOcean’s operations and maintains our position in the Mexican offshore service market with the Arbol Grande and the Atlantic Challenger” says Javier Leon-Orantes, Regional Manager for DeepOcean Mexico.
