This week, we review an assortment of vessels representing the various sub-categories within the offshore sector, from construction/installation to maintenance support and extraction/processing. Newbuilds are entering service across a wide geographical scope stretching from Asia to Europe, the Middle East, and South America.

OSVs • Exploration • Extraction • Processing • Construction • Storage • Operations • Renewables

Our regular focus on the offshore industry would not be complete without a regular column from our anonymous insider Hieronymus Bosch. Readers are once again treated to his well-written opinions and insights on some of the most recent important developments in this ever-active sector.
