[QUOTE=Conspearasea;43113]I don’t think that those listings are accurate. The Global website does not list all of those (globalind.com), and I can tell you they don’t have the resources for all of those positions unless they are acquiring a new fleet…which I highly doubt. I feel certain I would know if they needed that many personnel right now. There is a new vessel the Global 1200, the crewing is handled by Crowley though. They have the 1201 being built now, but still a ways until complete. As for other vessels, Global recently sold two of their DSVs to Triton, and the fleet is mainly barges and large construction vessels.
The G1200 is manned by a company called Northern Marine Management which is part of Stena. She does not have any Americans in her crew to the best of my knowledge since she is apparently not going the GoM to work. If she does end up in the Gulf, one has to wonder if GlobInd will do the right thing and put a US crew on her then? They have a US crew on the GLOBAL ORION just as 33CFR141 says they are supposed to have so good on them for following the book even though I bet they could get a foreign manning waiver just like CalDive and Veolia get for their foreign vessels in the Gulf.
The G1201 has only recently been launched and I can’t imagine any crew on her for at least 6 months.
