Oil and Gas Industry Services - "One Gulf - Multiple Projects - One Agent"

Oil and Gas are important natural resources. The explosive growth in development of offshore oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico has mobilized tonnage from worldwide owners to service this specific industry. American Shipping and Chartering effective in 2002 created a dedicated department for agency activities catering to the specialized, very intense and diverse needs of the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry. This department has been very active in the offshore industry with the mobilization of new facilities and platforms offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Post hurricane Katrina and Rita, American Shipping and Chartering's Oil and Gas Industry Services department filled a vital role in the support of many offshore construction vessels involved in the emergency clean-up and repairs.

In 2007, Oil and Gas Industry Services expanded their services into the Mexican Bay of Campeche for the Oil and Gas services ports of Dos Bocas, Coatzacoalcos and Ciudad del Carman. Networks of agents in Mexico are partnered to provide quality services in Mexican waters.
