www.shipsandoil.com was originally www.mmass.co.uk a website set up bring to the notice of the world the presence of Marex Marine Services by featuring details of supply vessels from all over the world. The first picture was uploaded on the Marex website in 1998. In one way or another it is intended that every single picture uploaded since will remain available. Over time the site has become an entity in itself, and so is now detached from Marex Marine Services, and is devoted in one way or another to marine support to the offshore oil industry. IN the early days there were very few sites, even amongst the shipyards and the ship-owners with any proper information so we used to be the market leaders. Now everyone tries to attract people and so we have taken  a smaller role.

That being said, we have had a period of limited activity and for that reason some of our fan base may have drifted away. Now, with the publication of our first related book, "The History of the Supply Ship" we hope to be more active again. See the link to the left. The site contains a regular picture contribution from seafarers all over the world, quite a bit of ship information, some articles, a newsletter and a link to a webcam on the edge of Aberdeen harbour. All these items can be accessed by the links above.

Of all these items the most difficult to deal with is the ship information  due to the massive newbuilding programme the constant changes of ownership. However, we are going to get back in there and start to provide more information and more photographs. Where this has happened we'll make some indication on the first page.

SPONSORS

MMASS Consultancy Services - Marex Marine and Safety Services are a consultancy assisting the owners and charterers of mobile units with many aspects of operating these curious marine objects. To this end they write many sorts of operating and safety documents, including safety cases, carry out offshore vessel audits and inspections and manage marine operations.

MMASS LIMITED is a sister company engaged in the distantly related activity of supplying tank cleaning equipment to offshore vessels and rigs, also to companies who supply offshore mud pit cleaning services.

Marinetronix Limited specialise in the service, repair, calibration and supply of dynamic positioning (DP) sensors and hold a comprehensive inventory of spares.

The Marine Safety Forum is a relatively informal organisation made up of ship-owners, oil companies, consultancies and others with an interest in offshore safety. It holds meetings two or three times a year, initiates workgroups and publishes information, much of which can be found on their website. We offer the link as our own small contribution.
