Prosafe has extended its standstill agreement with Cosco over the three disputed rigs.
The pair are currently working “to find a comprehensive commercial solution for the three Prosafe vessels that currently reside in COSCO’s Qidong shipyard in China”.
The Safe Eurus is in a preserved, strategic stacking mode and negotiations continue with Cosco to find a workable commercial solution.
The standstill agreement between Prosafe and Cosco related to Safe Nova and Safe Vega has recently been extended until 20 April 2018.
A spokesperson said: “Prosafe remains in negotiations with COSCO and related parties for a workable commercial solution for Safe Nova and Safe Vega. If no agreement is reached, Prosafe has the right to claim cancellation of the newbuild contracts due to delay, and claim repayment of the instalments paid including interest of approx. USD 60 million in total, secured by a refund guarantee from Bank of China.”
Prosafe is an owner and operator of semi-submersible accommodation vessels.
