Marine & Chartering

Smooth Sailing

Our dedicated Marine team has years of experience, providing you with the necessary background and expertise to provide you with all aspects of Marine service, such as:

Move the rig….

Moving drilling rigs is a large and complex task – both in size of the equipment used, amount of involved personnel and planning required. You just need to provide us with four things; what rig, from where, to where and when. We will take care of everything else.

….and everything else.

Instead of making a list of what our marine department can do you for, it is easier for us to make a list of what this department cannot do. Here it is:

So to summarize; nearly everything involving marine operations, our marine department can organize. Including fixing the optimal vessel spread.

Contracts & Logistics

Flyyy me to the… rig.

Not a lot of people knows that we can provide your operation or company with ‘round the clock manned Helicopter operations centre; handling all bookings, reports and ticketing. Logistics is not just cargo, but also people and getting the correct people on site, on time, every time, is something we take great pride in.

A lot of Hardware & Paperwork.

Drilling a well takes a lot of contracts and equipment – and circumstances change constantly. With a complete set of services Contracts for our service line is ready to be called off, we’ll always make sure that we have planned for every event, even the unforeseen ones – coordinating with vessels, contractors and suppliers.
