Preferred one-stop shop in offshore oil and gas sector

Part of the Stanford Marine Group, a leading industrial group based in the UAE, Stanford Marine has achieved a leading position in its industry through hard work and a continuous focus on client satisfaction, operations effectiveness and HSE

STANFORD Marine owns, manages and operates a large fleet of offshore supply vessels that service the oil and gas industry in the Middle East, South East Asia, and Africa.

Established in 1997, it is headquartered in Dubai and operates out of additional offices and support bases in Singapore, Doha (Qatar), Abu Dhabi (UAE), Mtwara (Tanzania) and Dammam (Saudi Arabia).

Stanford Marine’s fleet is composed of DP1/DP2 (dynamic positioning) platform supply vessels, anchor handling tug supply (AHTS), anchor handling tug (AHT), fast crew boats and utility vessels and counts 40 vessels in operation as of January 2013. Having a multipurpose fleet allows it to be the preferred one-stop-shop for a wide range of clients, from production to offshore construction, and geotechnical contractors.

The company acts as a commercial manager for a few selected third party owners of offshore support vessels different from the Stanford fleet types, or in different geographical areas ranging from the Far East to Africa, South America and Europe.

Third party owners benefit from the commercial network of Stanford Marine. Due to excellent and long lasting relationships with its clients, Stanford is able to stay abreast of their activities and assist with their planning for offshore support vessels. Before taking third party vessels on charter, Stanford ensures compatibility of third party systems with its own management system and client requirements.

In addition, Stanford offers full technical management of third party offshore support vessels, offering third party owners the benefits of their experienced team and effective planned maintenance, crewing and management systems. They also grant access to experienced technical teams on the ground and to their pre-negotiated terms with suppliers.

The company is highly focused on health, safety and environment (HSE), and as such is ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified. It is pre-qualified with all leading companies in the offshore oil and gas industry and is proud to serve a large number of blue chip firms, some of which have been its customers for more than two decades.

Stanford Marine is part of the Stanford Marine Group, a leading industrial group based in the UAE and serving the global oil and gas industry, whose principals are Abraaj Capital, based in Dubai and largest private equity fund in the Middle East, and Waha Capital, a blue-chip diversified investment holding company based in Abu Dhabi.

Stanford Marine has achieved a leading position in its industry through hard work and a continuous focus on client satisfaction, operations effectiveness and health and safety. Its sustained profitable growth throughout the recent economic downturns is a validation of its ambition and dedication. It is committed to exceed its clients’ expectations by constantly learning, improving and giving the best.
