Constanta: Romania’s GSP Offshore has ambitions to head into deepwater operatations. Gabriel Comanecu, ceo and president of the company, tells Maritime CEO: “We’re heading towards deepwater operations and the fleet development focuses mainly into that.”
GSP Offshore has seven MODUs, ten multifunctional OSVs with different operational capabilities, a fleet of five construction vessels which includes two pipelay vessels, one semisubmersible barge and two crane barges. It also provides operational management for 15 OSVs.
“GSP Offshore is determined to continue its strategic growth: deepwater operations, the service offering diversification in order to meet the renewable energy offshore market and the submarine cable installation market are some of our objectives in the short and medium term. And, as a consequence, GSP’s fleet is going to develop further. The offshore drilling operational capacity will be supported by newbuild units from drillships to ultra drillships, jack ups and drilling barges,” says Comanecu.
GPS’s activities are currently concentrated in perimeters offshore Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey in the Black Sea, offshore Mexico in the Gulf of Mexico, in the Dutch sector of the North Sea, the Pechora Sea in the southeastern part of the Barents Sea offshore the Russian Federation, and on the Tunisian, Libyan and Greek shelves of the Mediterranean Sea.
The first deepwater steps are going to be performed in the same regions where GSP already operates. [23/07/13]
