 Norwegian oil major Statoil has declared a one-year option for the Platform Supply Vessel (PSV) Viking Energy from April this year, in direct continuation of current contract.

 
Eidesvik said on Monday that Statoil exercised a one-year option for Viking Energy. The extension is set to begin in April this year.
 
The vessel will be prepared for shore power, and equipment for better fuel consumption measurement will be installed.
 
Viking Energy was the world's first LNG-powered offshore vessel when it was launched in 2003. 
 
The propulsion system powered by natural gas reduces the emissions of CO2, NOx and sulfur-containing gases. 
 
The construction of the hull and superstructure was subcontracted to the Polish shipyard Maritim in Gdańsk from where it was towed to Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, Norway, for outfitting.
