Glossary of Terms



The Ships and Oil website has been in existence since 1998, predating almost all other marine websites and most of those operated by shipowners. It consists of a number of subsections dealing with different aspects of the marine world as it relates to the offshore oil industry. One of the most popular areas is picture of the day. This started off as a snap taken of vessels coming and going and immediately put on line, but over time it has become a feature which at best is updated a couple of times a week, and shows photographs of offshore vessels all over the world contributed by our visitors. The next item to be developed was Ship Information, also using photos sent in by our contributors plus comprehensive details picked up where-ever they are available.
