Viking Supply Ships’ substantial expertise in operating in ice and harsh weather conditions will be important as oil and gas exploration in Arctic waters gain traction. The increasing activity in these areas will create opportunities for multi-year contracts with oil companies and thus balance volatile earnings from the North Sea spot market.

On average, the officers on board our AHTS vessels have over 10 years’ experience in ice breaking and offshore operations. The focus on competence on ice and extreme weather conditions has proven to be successful – Viking Supply Ships has conducted operations in Arctic waters for customers like Shell, ENI Norge, Cairn Energy and Statoil.
