Wipe out! ↑
The AHTS imbalance in the North Sea has been wiped out with just a pair of vessels now prompt on either side.
And the anchor handler and platform supply markets are equally tight with utilisation levels for both just over the 90% mark.
There were only a pair of AHTS fixtures since the last report and both were for supply work.
MLS added the 183-tbp Bourbon Orca (built 2006) in Norway at NOK 280,000 per day.
On the UK side E.ON picked up the 157-tbp Pacific Blade (built 1998) at £10,000 per day.
There was yet another term deal for a PSV as Chariot Oil and Gas fixed the newbuilding 4,800-dwt PSV Olympic Commander (built 2012) for two months plus options.
The vessel will support the Maersk Deliverer at $45,000 (£28,600) per day.
Most of the spot fixtures were on the UK side with the exception of Statoil grabbing the 4,850-dwt North Purpose (built 2010) at around NOK 200,000 per day.
TEAM fixed the 3,910-dwt Highland Champion (built 1979) for a cargo run plus an option at £12,000 per day, slightly above the £11,500 daily Talisman paid yesterday.
ASCo fixed the 3,366-dwt NSO Fortune (built 1983) for a cargo run plus an option at £17,000 per day.
Maersk picked up the 3,250-dwt SBS Cirrus (built 1985) for similar work but at £20,000 per day.
TEAM hired the 4,200-dwt Ocean Pride (2012) at £23,500 per day.
And BP fixed the 3,500-dwt Olympic Electra (built 2011) at £24,500 per day, well above the £24,500 daily Total paid yesterday.
