Peterson has proven to be a reliable partner for the execution of subsea projects and together we have already successfully met several milestones. We look forward to the successful execution and delivery of the project in the coming months.”

The contract will be active for a period of 1 year, with both parties intent on exploring further opportunities across the Caribbean region.
