Khalid Al Shoaibi, chairman of GMSSA, said, "This new contract establishes a strong base for GMSSA's further expansion in the offshore industry in the kingdom."

GMS chief executive officer Duncan Anderson noted, “The contract marks a significant milestone in the GMSSA joint venture. We hope to continue to work closely and expand our foothold in the Gulf.”

GMSSA is set to provide floating or self-elevating offshore platforms, which will be used by oil companies for offshore well maintenance, construction and accommodation.
