Paragon Offshore's logistics base in Abu Dhabi completed with GAC's support
 

Fully-fledged services included pre-building design development, construction and transportation  

Abu Dhabi, UAE 16 May 2017:  GAC Abu Dhabi has completed the preparation, construction and relocation of a logistics base dedicated to supporting Paragon Offshore's operations.

The global drilling services provider entrusted the handling of the entire project to establish the new base to GAC. That included: designing the plot and layout of the base; obtaining all necessary approvals to developing a storage facility; arranging renovation works; and relocating all cargo from Paragon Offshore’s old site to the new facility. The base will provide support to two of Paragon Offshore’s jack-up rigs.

Situated at Mina Zayed port, known for its safe and accessible location, the base has an open yard space of 3,717m², 930m² of warehouse space, facilities tailored to the needs of the oil & gas sector, and a team of GAC Abu Dhabi staff on-site. The yard is divided into areas dedicated to drill pipes and collars, as well as general cargo, BOP (BlowOut Preventer) parts, open top containers and heavy machinery. 

GAC’s in-house Warehouse Management System (WMS), GACWare has also been incorporated into the operations, to ensure full supply chain transparency, accurate stock records and control inventory.

Meticulous planning
The movement of cargo from Paragon Offshore’s old logistics base at Mussafah 60km away to its new location took meticulous planning and execution. GAC Abu Dhabi activated more than 100 trailers for the transfer of cargo alone, over-sized cargo needed special lifting and police escorts accompanied some loads moved by night.

GAC Abu Dhabi’s Logistics Manager, Richard Rees, notes that despite tight deadlines and challenges presented by unforeseen bad weather, his team delivered on time and on budget, with zero incidents.

Paragon Offshore’s Materials Manager – Supply Chain, Mark Basil, says: “We commend the GAC team for their support and teamwork throughout the project. We are pleased to have them working with Paragon Offshore to support our oil and gas operations in Abu Dhabi.” 

With operations at the base in full swing, the GAC team will continue to provide support which includes receiving all local supplies and back-loads from the rigs and arranging load-outs back to the rigs. The company also takes care of transportation, MHE (Material Handling Equipment) and archiving of documents.
