DEEPOCEAN SHIPPING

DeepOcean Shipping is a subsidiary of the American ship-owner Trico. DeepOcean, as opposed to DeepOcean Shipping, is exclusively involved in construction, diving and similar activities. In addition to the ships detailed here, DeepOcean have a number of other vessels on long term charter. I have chosen not to detail them here.

This company is apparently Norwegian, but the vessels on the page are all working in the Gulf of Mexico - hence the location of this information in the ShipsandOil system.

In 2011 it seems that Trico is bankrupt but that Deepocean is still trading.

In the January 2013 review it can be seen that Deepocean have chartered a number of ships from other owners, including Trico UK, who still exist in a small way. They seem to have added one ship to their own fleet, a former Trico UT 745.

At the 2014 review the company seems to have 12 vessels on charter, and owns 4 of its own. The latest to join the fleet will be the Deep Helder - which is on the fleet list, but the keel was only laid in November last year and it is owned by Seamar.

At the review in November 2014 the company appears to have regained control, if those are the right words, of three of the former Trico ships.  They also have numerous IMR ships on charter. They are either extremely well organised, well funded and well supported, or else they are sailing pretty close to the wind.
