November 18 - GAC has opened new offices in Louisiana, USA and Labuan, Malaysia, in response to the increase of offshore oil and gas activity in the respective regions.

The new GAC Shipping USA office is located in Galliano, close to Port Fourchon, Morgan City, which is the region's main port supporting offshore oil and gas activity.

The facility has office space for principals, if required for hands-on support during projects, mobilisations or demobilisations of their vessels at Fourchon, as well as a warehouse and outside storage to cater for the staging or storage of equipment or supplies.

In addition to this new site, another division of the GAC Group, GAC Malaysia has opened a new office in the city of Labuan (pictured), strategically located near Customs and port facilities.
