Plotting Our Course Into the Future

Just as Tidewater has evolved through the decades, it will continue adapting its fleet, its services and its workforce to the changing needs of the energy industry.  Today, the company is vigorously addressing a range of complex issues, including:

 

  • Maintaining our exceptional record of safe operations and responsible environmental stewardship;
     
  • Maintaining a new and well-equipped fleet while continuing to invest in additional new vessels with expanded capabilities;
     
  • Planning for and managing offshore work that’s increasingly moving into deeper waters;
     
  • Anticipating and adapting to changes in the global oil and gas supply and demand balance, and 
     
  • Recruiting, training and retaining the best people in an increasingly competitive workplace.

 

Tidewater’s people recognize that in today’s competitive and dynamic environment, continued industry leadership demands not just the operating excellence we’ve demonstrated in the past, but the experience, creativity and drive for exceptional safe customer service that have served the company, its investors and its employees so well for over 55 years.

Remaining Focused on Serving our Customers

During the 1970’s, Tidewater took advantage of  opportunities to expand its portfolio into related businesses as well, diversifying into oil and gas development, real estate holdings and natural gas compressors. The diversification experience ultimately led the company back to a renewed focus on its core marine business. Even so, the company and its investors benefited financially from the efforts as the sale of assets helped to eliminate debt taken on in the 1997 O.I.L. acquisition.

Tidewater believes that the key to success in its core marine business is customer service. We recognize that having the most or even the best equipment is insignificant if that equipment isn’t directed and operated by knowledgeable, skilled and service-oriented employees. So Tidewater provides initial and ongoing training for its people, stressing safe operations and accommodating service. Further, Tidewater maintains offices throughout the world, so that local managers can be close to their operations and their customers, wherever they’re needed.

All the while, Tidewater balances its customer-service goals with the financial goal of achieving the highest return for its stockholders. To that end, Tidewater’s management is continually analyzing its operations to ensure optimal returns, mindful of the expectations of all those—customers, investors and employees—who put their trust in Tidewater.

Creating an Industry

Tidewater’s story begins in 1955, when a group of investors led by the Laborde family of New Orleans pioneered the development of the first offshore service vessel tailor-made to support the new and growing offshore oil and gas industry. A year later, as the vessel Ebb Tide prepared to sail to work in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, Tidewater Marine Service, Inc. commenced operations. Its first leader was John P. Laborde.

Now, more than 55 years and many vessels later, Tidewater remains the leader of the industry it created, following the search for oil and gas into increasingly deeper waters globally and extending its proven record of service to installations closer to land. In the process, the company has earned a reputation for anticipating and responding to the changing worldwide needs of energy exploration and production.

Growing our Fleet & Our Business

Since its earliest days, Tidewater has worked to expand its services and markets. Today the company is the leading provider of larger Offshore Service Vessels (OSV's)  in the industry, deploying vessels around the world wherever there is significant oil and gas exploration, development or production efforts.

From the Ebb Tide other vessels followed: anchor handling, towing supply and supply vessels, specialty boats, offshore tugs and crew boats. These vessels transport people, equipment and supplies between mainland locations and various offshore installations. They tow, position and help anchor mobile drilling rigs. They assist in a variety of offshore construction projects and aid in a number of specialty services, including cable-laying and three-dimensional-seismic work.

As the oil and gas business expanded beyond the Gulf of Mexico, Tidewater followed, initially in Venezuela in 1958 where it maintained a presence for  more than 50 years, followed quickly by expansion into a variety of additional international waters.

In the 1960s, Tidewater’s international presence expanded to the waters off Central America, West Africa and Australia. Today, Tidewater’s boats are on the job in various international waters and the company is well-prepared to deploy vessels and services wherever the oil and gas industry extends its search for new hydrocarbon resources.

Tidewater’s rise to the top, however, didn't come without growing pains. When the bottom fell out of the oil and gas market in the mid-1980s, many energy-related companies struggled to survive. Tidewater persevered through the hard times and even fought off an unsolicited buyout offer to stay afloat.

While Tidewater has built more than its share of boats, the company has also grown by way of mergers and acquisitions, a technique employed by the company to rapidly increase its revenue base. In 1992, Tidewater consummated a merger with Zapata Gulf Marine, doubling the size of the company’s fleet at the time. In 1996, Tidewater took in a major U.S. competitor, Hornbeck Offshore Services, Inc, adding 90 more vessels to its fleet. In 1997 the company acquired O.I.L. Ltd., again significantly increasing the size of its fleet, specifically in the growing international arena.

By 2000, the company embarked on an aggressive new building and acquisition program that continues today. These new generation vessels has enabled Tidewater to revitalize its fleet and meet the demanding needs of its customers globally as they increasingly tackle the deepwater market.

Tidewater Vessels


Vessels & Services

 

 

Comprehensive Services from the Industry’s Largest Fleet

 

Tidewater’s fleet is the largest fleet of OSVs in its industry, and the most versatile as well. With more than 300 vessels, highly trained and experienced crews, and full technical support, Tidewater marshals the resources to deliver a comprehensive range of high-quality, cost-effective services. We support every phase of offshore exploration, development and production, including towing and anchor-handling for drilling rigs and equipment, and transporting the supplies and personnel needed to sustain drilling, research, workover and production activities. Tidewater also provides the direct assistance needed for specialized services such as pipe laying, cable laying, pollution and fire control, and  seismic work.

 

Tidewater maintains offices throughout six continents to ensure the readiness of technical support that is thoroughly familiar with the logistics, politics and cultural sensitivities of every region our vessels operate. From short-term special projects to long-term exploration, development and production. Tidewater customers receive efficient, personal and knowledgeable service of the highest quality.

 


 

The World’s Best Fleet

 

Tidewater is the leading provider of larger Offshore Service Vessels (OSVs) in the industry, and continues to invest in the next generation of vessels to upgrade our capabilities. The major types of vessels we operate are:

 


 

Platform Supply Vessels (PSV)

 

Few vessels can match the performance and versatility of Tidewater’s general purpose supply vessels. Designed to carry a wide variety of cargoes, our PSVs can transport substantial amounts of fuel, water, drilling fluids, cement or mud in below-deck tanks, while their spacious, open decks can carry large quantities of materiel such as casing, drill pipe, tubing and miscellaneous deck cargo.

 

 


 

Anchor Handling Towing Supply Vessels (AHTS)

 

The most versatile vessels in the Tidewater fleet are large, powerful anchor handling towing supply vessels, capable of all types of towing, anchor handling activities, and varied subsea operations. Tidewater crews manning these ships are specially trained to run this equipment with precision and efficiency while maintaining a focus on safety at all times.

 

Fitted with experienced crews and state of the art technology, these AHTS’s are capable of positioning and mooring drilling rigs in virtually any location, depth or sea condition and under a wide range of conditions. With a wide range of power, sizes and capacities, these vessels are also well-suited for general offshore support services, drilling rig support functions and cargo transport assignments.

 

 

 

 


 

 

Specialty Vessels

 

Tidewater is unsurpassed in its enthusiasm for developing highly specialized equipment to meet its customers’ demands. Tidewater, as an example, was selected by the U. S. government to provide support in launching geo-stationary radar equipment for drug interdiction in the Gulf of Mexico.

 

Our unique vessels are capable of supporting a broad range of specialized marine applications, including, but not limited to:

 

  • Cable laying
  • Diving support
  • FPSO support
  • Line-handling
  • Platform maintenance
  • ROV support
  • Seismic support
  • Well stimulation

 


 

Fast Crew Supply Vessels

 

Few companies can boast the wide range of crewboats Tidewater operates around the world. With the capacity to safely transport as many as 150 passengers and moderate quantities of cargo at high speed and  in comfort, Tidewater’s crewboat fleet has the versatility to meet a variety of production needs in the most demanding of conditions.

 


 

Offshore Tugs

 

Tidewater operates a large fleet of offshore tugs, offering optimal flexibility and broad capabilities to address any offshore towing application, for any project, in any location. Our tugs perform conventional towing and anchor handling functions supporting a wide range of offshore tasks, including rig towage and marine construction. Tidewater tugs are also employed in coastal and ocean towage of both containerized and bulk cargoes.

 


 

Utility Vessels

 

Ranging from 85 to 150 feet in length, Tidewater’s utility vessels can be configured to meet our client’s endless array of special needs. These versatile pieces of equipment generally support production in the field, functioning as all-purpose vessels supporting diving operations, offshore structure maintenance and general assistance, to name a few.

Operating Safely

Operating Safely and the Environment

 

As an industry leader in operating safely, Tidewater strives to provide a place of employment for our staff and our customers that is the safest possible in the challenging marine environment. The company maintains effective accident prevention programs and systems and complies with all applicable national and international rules and regulations.

 

We view operating safely, accident prevention and environmental protection as core operational responsibilities, and so all employees are responsible for the prevention of job-related injuries and illnesses, property damage and environmental accidents through the use of good judgment and the consistent application of company guidelines and procedures. Our philosophy is that no job is so important that we cannot take the time to do it properly, and therefore complete it safely.

 

That commitment has made Tidewater an industry leader in operating safely.

 


 

A Strong Environmental Ethic
 

Tidewater is privileged to deliver its services in an environmental setting of extraordinary beauty and power—the waters of the world. We are keenly aware of the balance that must be maintained between human activities and nature’s beauty and abundance, and we’re committed to conducting all of our operations in a way that avoids or minimizes actions that could harm the environment.

 

Our policy is one of responsible environmental stewardship; our objective is to prevent pollution in our operations. Tidewater and its employees follow all state, federal and other applicable regulatory standards to prevent pollution or environmental damage to the lands, waters and air in which they work. Furthermore, vendors, subcontractors and others who visit or work at company locations and facilities are held accountable for ensuring that environmentally sound practices and applicable laws and procedures are followed. We make sure every employee knows that environmental pollution hazards or violations of our environmental policy should be brought to the immediate attention of management.

 

Tidewater’s exceptional environmental performance is evidence of the company’s commitment.

Vessels
 

Tidewater aggressively inspects its vessels to ensure both legal and regulatory compliance and a safe workplace. A prominent component of this process is our Vessel Maintenance System; it ensures the reliability of all vessels operated by Tidewater, with an emphasis on the reliability of critical systems. We reinforce the importance of this program by training our employees to maintain a very high awareness of vessel equipment preparedness and we safeguard the integrity of our Vessel Maintenance System through internal and external audits.

 


 

People
 

Tidewater believes its employees are its greatest assets, and so we’re committed to providing employees with the safest working environment and the highest level of training possible. We maintain full compliance with the current Standard for Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) that requires employees to be familiar with safe working practices and emergency response procedures, and to be competent in implementing such procedures.

 


 

Programs
 

Tidewater has developed and implemented a Safety Management System (SMS), a comprehensive guide to policies, practices and procedures that contains information ranging from corporate standards to safety guidance for day-to-day operations. This system is fully compliant with the International Safety Management (ISM) Code; all Tidewater shorebases maintain a Document of Compliance, and all Tidewater vessels maintain a Safety Management Certificate that certifies that their shipboard management operates in accordance with the approved SMS. While only vessels larger than 500 gross tons are legally required to maintain Safety Management Certification, Tidewater has chosen to have many of its smaller vessels certified to help ensure a worldwide safety and quality standard for our vessels and people.

 

Two main tenets of Tidewater’s SMS are our Risk Assessment/Job Safety Analysis (RA/JSA) and Stop Work Obligation (SWO) policies.

 

  • The RA/JSA process enables all employees to walk through the work scope, identify the potential hazards, measure the risk and put controls in place to reduce or eliminate the hazards identified before the work is undertaken.
     
  • SWO is the right and duty of each employee to stop a job that is unsafe or is felt to be unsafe. Any employee can shut down or suspend any job whenever he or she feels an unsafe working condition exists until that condition can be improved or the doubt is resolved. Tidewater management supports all employees in their use of this policy.

 


 

Operating Safely is a Core Asset.
 

Tidewater empowers its employees with the authority to review work practices so that we can prevent accidents.  We also work to prevent pollution or other adverse environmental impacts from our operations. We believe properly trained employees armed with both the knowledge and authority to control their environment are in the best position to protect themselves, our vessels and our customers. So safety and environmental protection are tied directly to our most important business assets—our people, our capacity  to control costs, and our ability to deliver the highest quality service.
