Offshore marine supply bases and logistics hubs

Whether in remote locations or major industrial areas, logistics hubs need to adapt to meet industry changing needs. This can be across a dynamic range from net zero ambitions, operational improvement to expansion campaigns.
Offshore marine supply bases

Offshore supply bases are strategically located complex of facilities that are designed to provide logistical support to offshore assets and operations. They  act as a hub - linking up land-based and offshore operations.

In the Oil and Gas industry, these bases must ensure the necessary services, equipment, and supplies are available, reliable, and efficiently deployedto make sure offshore assets operate efficiently and effectively.

Material offloading facilities (MOF or MOLF)

Offshore marine supply bases

Through the lifespan of marine supply bases, their needs and requirements change. During initial construction of field assets or the expansion of existing field marine supply bases are often repurposed as Material Offshore Facilities to support construction efforts.

Our consultants are experts in assessing where to invest in the right infrastructure to efficiently and cost effectively support this construction.
