Gulf Marine Services owns and operates Elevated Support Vessels as well as supply and AHTS vessels. These assets serve the oil and gas industry worldwide and focus on well maintenance and workover, offshore accommodation, diving and construction. In addition to this GMS is capable of supporting salvage and offshore towage.

The Company was established in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates in 1977 and has an offshore base and head office in Mussaffah, Abu Dhabi. GMS is the largest Elevated Support Vessel operator in the Middle East currently having a fleet of five modern jack-up barges and seven offshore supply and anchor handling vessels. The ESV fleet complies with the latest MODU regulations.

GMS constructs and maintains its vessels on site in Mussaffah and is undertaking an extensive new build programme involving the construction of Gusto NG2500X DPII ESV's, the first of which will be delivered in 2009. These vessels will be built to the highest offshore standards and will be available to operate worldwide.

The supervision of the construction and operation of the whole GMS fleet is undertaken in house with a seasoned senior management team which has recently been drawn from the worldwide as well as local market to serve our clients.
