GULF OFFSHORE NORGE

The Norwegian branch of Gulf Offshore was originally Safe Offshore the ships being called something Truck. On this site the division of the company is a recent development. The intent is to make access easier. It is also difficult to deal with managed vessels so the site is not totally consistent. The way forward may be to  include the managed vessels on the manager's page and to give the owners a page of their own. Here the Volstad vessels managed by Gulf Norge are included.

Other Gulf pages are for Gulf Marine Brasil, and Gulf Offshore the UK arm of the company. The vessels working in the Gulf of Mexico are all from the former Rigdon fleet, and so are presented under that name.

At the 2014 review it can be seen that the Norwegian fleet has been redeployed mostly it appears to the UK fleet, and actually on the GulfMark site they are shown together, but for the moment the Norwegian fleet, now quite small, is shown separately.

So according to the GulfMark website the following five ships compose the Norwegian fleet, and there appears to be one ship on order.
