In July 2010, UNO Offshore was incorporated as an independent offshore broking house with sole focus on offshore field development. One of our key drivers was and continues to be the ambition to provide a wider and more thorough service proposition to our clients. Within few weeks we had all necessary resources in place and late August, just in time for the 2010 ONS exhibition in Stavanger, UNO Offshore opened up for business in our office in the center of Oslo.
Late 2012 we strengthened our teams in both Haugesund and Oslo, employing new brokers to support our chartering operations and rig projects. UNO Offshore followed our usual hiring strategy with focus on the offshore field development and secured brokers with a diversified background and competences complementing very well our existing resources.In August 2011, UNO Offshore started to offer Subsea Chartering Brokerage Services to our clients in the Subsea Intervention- and Specialized Tonnage chartering markets. We proudly presented this expansion of our services with a series of under water photos.
In May 2012, UNO Offshore passed another important milestone, opening up our office in Haugesund, Western Norway. This venture has a strong reputation amongst Owners and Charterers in the OSV market, and is expanding UNO Offshore services further in the OSV spot- and term charter markets worldwide. As part of UNO Offshore’s growth strategy in the Chartering market we secured in April 2012 full approval by Achilles JQS and TRACE International, and implemented our Quality Management System fully in compliance and certified to the ISO 9001 standards.
A substantial portion of UNO Offshore revenue to date has been generated with clients and projects in Asia. Consequently, our office in Singapore opened in April 2013.Mid 2015, UNO Offshore consolidated the staff and offices to only operate from Haugesund and Oslo. The market sentiment in the oil and gas service industry changed dramatically from end 2014, why our Asia-Pacific and Middle East customers once again had to rely on high frequency visits from Norway.
