Gulf Marine Services Saudi Arabia (GMSSA), a joint venture between the Shoaibi Group and Gulf Marine Services of the UAE, has been awarded a three-year contract to support rigless well intervention for a major offshore project in Saudi Arabia.

GMSSA will provide a modern self-propelled jack up service barge from a fleet of seven sister units all capable of supporting well intervention, construction and maintenance activities offshore.

The barge can operate in water depths up to 45 metres and can accommodate 150 personnel offshore.

"GMSSA has been working on a number of short-term projects in Saudi Arabia in recent years and this new contract establishes a strong base for further growth and expansion in the offshore industry by GMSSA in the kingdom," said GMSSA chairman Khalid Al Shoaibi.

Gulf Marine Services is currently the largest elevating support vessel operator in the Middle East, supplying a modern fleet of self-propelled barges to the oil and gas market.
