Bassoe Offshore is a leading offshore rig brokerage, advisory and project development company based in Oslo, Norway with offices in London, Houston, Dubai, and Rio de Janeiro. Our focus is on offshore rig assets including drilling, accommodation and service rigs, as well as floating production units.
Since 1978, we have established 11 companies in the offshore drilling and wind turbine installation industries and executed numerous independent newbuild, charter, and sale & purchase transactions on behalf of clients worldwide. We also provide market intelligence, rig valuation, transportation and consulting services to E&P companies, shipyards, financial institutions, and asset owners.
We're opening up the world of offshore drilling rig data with Bassoe Analytics, the free and open source offshore rig database and analysis application.
To complement our brokerage and advisory services, Bassoe Offshore develops digital applications for the offshore oil & gas industry. The first of these was our Rig Valuation Tool (RVT) which generates values for mobile offshore drilling rigs. Since then, we added our Transaction Database which tracks all offshore rig sale and purchase activity, including sales for scrapping and conversion. Now both of these products have been integrated into our latest product, Bassoe Analytics.
