TOPAZ ENERGY AND  MARINE

Time passes. To keep up with everything that is happening in the offshore world we would have to employ full time journalists, and then I suppose we would have to charge for the service. We do our best and we are still free (although some would say - just cheap). This is an excuse for not remembering when Seacor disposed of the Stirling Islay and the Stirling Jura to BUE, but we think it was in 2003. The ships had their upperworks removed and they were towed through the Russian canal system from the Black Sea to the Caspian, where they are now employed at what they do best.

On having a look at this company in 2009 I found that it had at some time been purchased by a company called Renaissance Services who operate the Islay and Jura and a number of other vessels in the Caspian out of Azerbaijan and Kazakstan. Developments are still taking place in this organisation now called "Topaz Marine".

We are aware that there are a number of vessels in the Caspian fleet but we don't know what they all are, but we've done what we can. Because of the change of location of the whole fleet, and the fact that BUE is now owned by a Middle Eastern company we have relocated its fleet list to "MEDITERRANEAN AND MIDDLE EAST"

The Company now seems to be called BUE Caspian, a wholly owned subsidiary of Topaz Marine and it may own more ships than are displayed here, but there seems to be no information about. (8th November 2012)

At the time of the 2013 review BUE seems to have been fully absorbed into  Topaz Energy and so BUE are now history and the story continues on the new Topaz page.

And this is the new Topaz page. Topaz Energy and Marine appears to be a Dubai based company with its major operations in the Caspian Sea. The seem to have a lot of ships, which is always a bit off putting for the compilers of marine information. It is always a big job to process a new company from scratch. Some companies have featured on these pages for more than 10 years. A cursory glance and their fleet list seems to show some ships owned by other companies, or at least the ships have names which are those of ships owned by other companies, they will be included here, and where possible their actual ownership determined.
