Pensacola, FL, November 02, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- DeepGulf has selected Lott Ship Agency to handle all logistical matters for its Ultra-Deep pipelay operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Lott Ship is one of the best ship agents in the business, serving the GOM offshore construction industry. With offices and operations in Mobile, New Orleans and Galveston/Houston, they are capable of serving DeepGulf’s needs in all the important ports of the Gulf of Mexico.
“We chose Lott Ship because of their undisputed excellence in this particular segment of the industry and also for their proprietary OSILAS Software System,” says Rus Howard, Chairman, DeepGulf. “Mainstream ERP systems are very large, enterprise level, resource management systems that do not meet all the rigorous demands at the operational level of the offshore construction industry. These heavy, sometimes cumbersome, systems can actually make problems worse in an industry where not having the right part at the right moment can create shutdowns that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per day and the cost of delivering a one dollar part frequently reaches thousands of dollars.”
OSILAS enables Lott Ship to integrate their very flexible and excellent logistical procurement and delivery model directly into their management system, and thus enables them to effectively function at the grassroots level. OSILAS delivers on the promise to control and manage the procurement process where it normally falls apart, specifically at the core operational level. The OSILAS system also manages the increasingly complex and demanding aspects of international operations logistics, such as security, documentation, import/export of materials and labor and all factors that make for a smooth operation.
“We are delighted with and excited about the opportunity to partner with DeepGulf and their revolutionary new pipelay system,” says Bill Lott, president of Lott Ship. “We expect to benefit from partnering with the only company that has the technology capable of constructing pipelines in the deepest parts of the GOM.”
DeepGulf, Inc. is in the business of building underwater pipelines and associated facilities in deep and ultra-deep offshore oil and gas production fields, primarily in the Gulf of Mexico. DeepGulf’s proprietary J-Flex 3600 marine pipelay system, with its 3,000 ton tensioning capacity, is capable of laying 36 inch pipelines in the deepest waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
