Established in 2007 by David Kenwright (pictured) Achater Offshore Limited is an independent company providing commercial intelligence and chartering services for various owners of Offshore Support Vessels, negotiating both spot and term fixtures utilizing our network of brokers and clients in the offshore Oil and Gas Industry.

We operate from a strategic UK location in Aberdeen, the Oil Capital of Europe, and offer both North Sea and International exposure.

Our services provide clients with a cost effective professional solution to the ever changing demands of the Offshore Marine Industry.

Our aim in chartering is to bring Owners and Clients together in order to conclude contracts which are mutually beneficial to both sides.

Recent clients we have worked with include BP, Shell, Enquest, AGR, Nexen and ADTI and we currently commercially manage a mixed fleet of medium and large modern Platform Supply Vessels, Anchor Handler, Tug Supply Vessels and DP2 Jackup Accommodation Barges.
