One-Stop-Shop for Oil Spill Response Norwegian suppliers Framo, Maritime Partner, Norbit Aptomar and NorLense have come together to create the OSRV (Oil Spill Recov- ery Vessel) Group to offer a com- plete oil spill response solution. The OSRV Group offers a pack- age solution that covers everything from detection and containment to spill recovery, all conducted with reliable equipment that can handle the challenges if an accident occurs. It operates with a delivery lead time of eight weeks for the full package. Total Takes Over Maersk Oil Total has closed acquisition of Maersk Oil, bringing to Total around 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent of 2P/2C reserves and resources, main- ly in the Organisation for Econom- ic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, and a produc- tion of about 160,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) in 2018, ramping up to more than 200,000 boe/d by the early 2020s. The acquisition of Maersk Oil allows the group to reinforce its ex- isting leading positions in the U.K. and in Norway, as well as to enter Denmark, making Total the sec- ond-largest operator in the North Sea with an output of 500,000 boe/d by 2020. The transaction also strengthens other growth areas of Total, particularly in Algeria and the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. ABS to Class First Hybrid OSV in GOM ABS was selected by SEACOR Marine to class the first offshore support vessel (OSV) in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) to operate using hy- brid power. SEACOR requested the BATTERY-Li notation for its Maya OSV currently operated by Manten- imiento Express Maritimo SAPI de CV (MEXMAR), SEACOR Marine's joint venture in Mexico. The OSV is being upgraded to use lithium bat- tery power, with modifications ex- pected to be complete in May 2018. The hybrid power solution has the potential to reduce fuel con- sumption by as much as 20 percent. Merger Enhances Offshore Install Delivery Fara Holdco Ltd., owners of the Bibby Offshore group of compa- nies, announced a merger with Rev- er Offshore AS. Rever's subsidiaries include CE- CON Contracting AS, an interna- tional subsea and offshore contrac- tor, as well as two vessel companies that own both the Cecon Excellence and Cecon Sovereign. The combination of Bibby and CECON Contracting AS is set to create a larger and more robust off- shore installation delivery business both in the North Sea and interna- tionally. The combined company will continue to evaluate growth oppor- tunities in its core diving and sub- sea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) markets. ST
