COLUMN | See you in court, part 57: Dolphin Drilling; Seatrium; Bourbon; Zachry Holdings [Offshore Accounts]

“See you in court!” is a familiar refrain and one we have often used as a headline. Offshore companies seem to get embroiled in contract disputes that end up in lengthy and expensive arbitration, or in commercial court disputes, just too often. I find it hard to believe that if this column covered...

COLUMN | On the edge? McDermott, Petrofac, The Metals Company and Cadeler [Offshore Accounts]

Lady Gaga famously sang that she was “on the edge of glory”. This week, we look at four companies on the edge of….well, something. Let’s check in on two construction companies, a subsea mining venture, and our favourite wind turbine installer. McDermott on the edge Finally, a judge in the UK has...

COLUMN | Reaping what you sow: McDermott, Seatrium, Gunvor and Trafigura [Offshore Accounts]

It seems appropriate to get all biblical this week, just after Easter. When Saint Paul wrote in his letter to the Galatians that “a man reaps what he sows,” he probably wasn’t thinking about corruption in the oil and gas industry two millennia later. But the last month has seen no less than four...

COLUMN | Winner takes it all: Boskalis binges with record profits, as Boluda takes silver and McDermott gets sued (again) [Offshore Accounts]

Whilst the first big consolidator of this offshore upcycle was Tidewater, rapidly followed by ADNOC and AD Ports of Abu Dhabi, Europe is also experiencing a quiet wave of consolidation. Driving this is the biggest of the “Big Four” lowlands dredging and offshore companies, Boskalis. But whereas the gains in Tidewater have been open to […]

COLUMN | Lowered expectations: Saudi Arabia’s oil production; Nigeria’s currency; SBM’s whistleblower; Falkland Islands’ FPSO [Offshore Accounts]

The novelist Jodi Picoult once said that, “there are two ways to be happy: improve your reality, or lower your expectations.” Changing the world for the better is hard, but there have been a lot of expectations lowered in the offshore industry this week. Unfortunately, these reduced expectations seem to have produced little joy in […]

COLUMN | Changing course: McDermott restructures (again); Siemens Gamesa bleeds (again); UK wind auction fails [Offshore Accounts]

Sometimes the inevitable needs to happen before things can change. Failure can be a catalyst for action. At other times, it can just be part of a repetitive cycle of doom. This week, we look at the world’s ugliest offshore construction company, which faces more grief, a wind turbine manufacturer whose woes we predicted 18 […]

COLUMN | The wheels of justice grind slowly: McDermott International’s multiple problems; Nigeria’s former oil minister charged with corruption in UK [Offshore Accounts]

In 1964, the American civil rights activist Dr Martin Luther King Jr delivered a sermon at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, closing by saying, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” How inspiring, how suitable for a motivational poster. But what about President Vladimir Putin’s lengthy and murderous tenure, what […]
