History

Commencing operations in 2001, GW Marine Consultants was the product of a long time professional friendship between Larry Williams and Chris Grubba. The Directors met whilst they were both working for GSI back in 1977. Since then they have both mastered their individual chosen career paths which lead them to take on the new challenge of starting a consulting business, both bringing with them a combined total of over 75 years in the oil and gas industry.

In July 2014 the company was restructured with Chris retiring as a Director and from Operational Management but still remaining active within the company as a Marine Auditing Consultant.

GW Marine Consultants started out with just the two Directors consulting for a handful of clients mainly in the areas of HSE Management Systems and vessel auditing, the company has now grown to have over 200 qualified professional consultants on the database and now offers a broad range of services to more than 100 clients. GW Marine Consultants have grown from offering a limited range of services for upstream exploration projects to now supplying a wide variety of consultants in all aspects of the oil and gas exploration offshore and onshore industry.

Below are some of the highlights from the GW Marine Consultants project history.

PGS – Ramform Titan and Ramform Atlas – New Build Inspections

Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) recently launched their next generation seismic survey vessels the Ramform Titan and Ramform Atlas. GW Marine Consultants was extremely privileged to be contracted to undertake the new build pre-inspections for both vessels. Our long time, highly qualified Master Mariner and lead auditor Captain Richard Court travelled on both vessels maiden voyages to carry out the inspections.
