May 8 - GAC Abu Dhabi has completed the preparation, construction and relocation of a logistics base dedicated to supporting Paragon Offshore's operations.

 GAC's scope of work included designing the plot and layout of the base, obtaining necessary approvals to develop a storage facility, arranging renovation works, and relocating all cargo from Paragon Offshore's old site to the facility.

Situated in Mina Zayed port, UAE, the base has an open yard space of 3,717 sq m, a warehouse space of 930 sq m and facilities tailored to the needs of the oil and gas sector.

GAC utilised more than 100 trailers for the transfer of the cargo from Paragon Offshore's old logistics base at Mussafah, to the new facility which is located 60 km away. According to GAC, oversized cargo required special lifting, while police escorts accompanied some loads, which were moved at night.

The base will provide support to two of Paragon Offshore's jack-up rigs.
