Paragon Offshore launches new UAE logistics base
GAC Abu Dhabi has completed the preparation, construction, and relocation of Paragon Offshore's UAE logistics base.
The global drilling services provider entrusted the handling of the entire project to GAC, including: the design of the plot and layout of the base; the approvals process; the renovation works; and the relocation of all cargo from Paragon's previous facility.
Located within Abu Dhabi's Zayed Port, the base will provide support for two of Paragon's jack-up rigs.
The facility boasts an open yard space of 3,717m², 930m² of warehouse space, facilities tailored to the needs of the oil and gas sector, and a team of GAC Abu Dhabi staff on-site.
The yard is divided into areas dedicated to drill pipes and collars, as well as general cargo, blow-out preventer (BOP) parts, open-top containers, and heavy machinery.
GAC’s in-house warehouse management system (WMS), GACWare, has also been incorporated into the base's operations to ensure full supply chain transparency, accurate stock records, and control inventory.
