- Energean said its Israeli subsidiary had agreed to purchase a field support vessel from Prime Marine Energy for $33.3 million.

The field support vessel was being constructed to meet Energean Israel's specifications.

It would 'provide significant in-country capability to support the Karish project, including FPSO re-supply, crew changes, holdback operations for tanker offloading, emergency subsea intervention, drilling support and emergency response,' the company said.

'The purchase of this multi-purpose vessel will enhance operational efficiencies and economics when compared to the leasing of multiple different vessels for the various activities,' it added.
