Abu Dhabi-based Ocean Oilfield Integrated Solutions has embarked on a significant maintenance and upgrade project for a jack-up barge, a contract awarded by Gulf Marine Services (GMS), a UAE-headquartered provider of self-propelled, self-elevating support vessels serving the offshore oil, gas, and renewables sectors.
The GMS Shamal, a self-propelled, self-elevating accommodation jack-up barge built in 2015, arrived at the Hamriyah Freezone shipyard in Sharjah, UAE, following GMS's decision to engage Ocean Oilfield for the maintenance and upgrade endeavor, which commenced last week.
Expressing gratitude for GMS's confidence and recurring contracts, Ocean Oilfield reaffirmed its unwavering commitment to prioritizing GMS projects, emphasizing the anticipation of successfully completing this prestigious project both punctually and safely.
The GMS Shamal, part of the S-Class fleet, possesses versatile capabilities, including well service, construction, installation, and accommodation for up to 150 individuals. Equipped with a 150-ton crane, it can operate efficiently in water depths of up to 55 meters.
Ocean Oilfield has recently demonstrated its expertise by concluding the reactivation and upgrade of one of Borr Drilling's jack-up rigs, which subsequently embarked on a new drilling mission in the Middle East. Prior to this accomplishment, one of the firm's jack-up rigs had been deployed to an offshore gas field in the UAE, commencing operations for Atlantis (UAQ) Limited.
