When was Offshore Oil Services founded?
Officially in 1968. However, in the early 1950's when drilling began in the western gulf of mexico, Carl Muchowich, converted several vessels from his fleet of shrimp boats into oil service vessels. This was done by extending the hull and modifying the cabin to accomodate passengers.
Why did you close the Muchowich Dock marine terminal?
As drilling activity moved into deeper waters and from the western gulf to the eastern gulf, the location of our terminal became less desirable. In addition, regulations and requirements for the terminal required a lot of management and returned little profit. The company chose to focus on one line of business rather than two.
How many crewboats do you operate?
The current fleet is comprised of six crewboats. One 130' class vessel, two 145' vessels, and three vessels in the 160' range.
Why are your crewboats white? Doesn't that require a lot of maintenance?
Yes. We think white looks clean and tight. The color scheme was chosen in 1974 and continues today. You can't hide behind white, and we like it that way.
