Many offshore chartering professionals use BIMCO contracts in their daily work – often dealing with several contracts from the BIMCO collection.

The origins of BIMCO’s work in the offshore sector date back to the early 70’s when the offshore oil and gas industry was still in its infancy. Support vessels at that time were commonly chartered using in-house contracts from oil majors or adapted standard time charter forms. Neither of these types of forms were ideally suited to address the peculiarities and hazards of this special trade. The publication of the first SUPPLYTIME form in 1975 created a relationship between BIMCO and the offshore industry that has continued for over 40 years. Today, BIMCO’s offshore forms have become among the organisation’s most widely used standard contracts.
