GULF OFFSHORE UK

COMPANY HISTORY

Follow the link to read the history for this company. Managed vessels are included here as well as company owned vessels, but they also appear on the owner's page elsewhere on this site.

At the 2014 review it appears that Gulf UK has ceased to manage a number of the Fratelli d'Amato platform ships, since now only one remains on the fleet list. Also a number of ships which were formerly managed in Norway have joined the UK fleet.
