INFORMATION ABOUT THIS SITE.

The Ships and Oil website has been in existence since 1998, predating almost all other marine websites and most of those operated by shipowners. It consists of a number of subsections dealing with different aspects of the marine world as it relates to the offshore oil industry. One of the most popular areas is picture of the day. This started off as a snap taken of vessels coming and going and immediately put on line, but over time it has become a feature which at best is updated a couple of times a week, and shows photographs of offshore vessels all over the world contributed by our visitors. The next item to be developed was Ship Information, also using photos sent in by our contributors plus comprehensive details picked up where-ever they are available. At the 2014 upgrade we have started separating off the different areas, at this moment dividing it between North Europe and the rest of the world. Another constantly developing area has been the Features section which now contains many thousands of words relating to marine activities, lately concentrating on marine disasters, an area of particular interest to the writer, and finally what started off as News and Views, it is now going to be called the Newsletter or maybe the Ships and Oil Newsletter. And lastly the "Publications" page features the offshore industry books written by the compiler of this site.

Financial support for the site, is provided by the Google ads, which more or less cover the costs of the service provider, but this still means that the compilation research and writing is still done for nothing unless you choose to buy one of the very interesting and well written books advertised.
