ADAMS OFFSHORE

Adams Offshore is effectively the international branch of the Saudi diving ship company Algosaibi. Its full name is "Khalifa A.Algosaibi Diving and Marine Operations.

Algosaibi have operated small air diving ships in the Arabian Gulf for many years and apparently in 1994 went international. They have bought and sold a number of ships, with some duplication of names, so we are starting off with the current fleet of five ships (November 2010).

The update using the Adams website in 2012 indicates minor changes to the fleet, and the addition of one chartered REM ship, the details of which will be found elsewhere.

At the 2014 review we can see that they have an office in Bahrain and the Adams Vision has disappeared form their website, although the pdf still exists. This is often true of ships which have been sold but the website has not been appropriately updated. It has been left on this site just in case.
