Offshore in 2022 ( )
When it comes to offshore in 2021, it is fair to say that owners have enjoyed better fortunes than they did in 2020, with more and more players believing that the worst is behind the sector rather than ahead.
The increase in activity is also driving demand for offshore support vessels and according to the latest report by Oslo-based shipbroker Fearnley Offshore Supply, going into the last quarter of 2021, the market has been fairly tight. Compatriot Seabrokers notes that OSV owners, particularly in the North Sea region, have been growing steadily more bullish with their rate expectations in recent months, with average fixtures comfortably higher year-on-year, so they will be hoping for further increases in 2022.
"Good quality and newer tonnage will be harder to come across"
The subsea support vessel market has seen strong improvement in 2021, having moved past the Covid-19 induced weakness of 2020. The re-emergence of inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) activity and increased walk-to-work requirements have both supported multipurpose support vessel (MPSV) demand last year with the sector looking ahead to increasingly optimistic sentiment for 2022, Clarksons Research analyst Oran Creedon finds.
Clarksons Offshore Index, that covers rigs, OSV and subsea, reached 63.6 by year-end, up 24% year-over-year, which is the highest since September 2015.
“Offshore markets made real progress in 2021, benefiting from the improving oil price, improving offshore activity and the impacts on fleet supply of further restructuring and consolidation. There is a sense of cautious optimism for further rate and utilisation improvement,” says Stephen Gordon, managing director of Clarksons Research.
