Opstad Shipping AS

Opstad Shipping

Opstad Shipping dates from the early 1960s when the initial company ”Brødrene Opstad” (Opstad Brothers) was established.

Its successful history started with Norwegian costal trading, but as the nature of trade and customer requirements changed, Opstad Shipping chose to enter into the Seismic Support market in 1999.

The conversion of M/S “Broa” and a long-term contract with Aker Geo Seismic provided the foundation for this transition and we have since then been awarded contracts with leading geophysical research companies such as CGGVeritas, Dulam, TPAO and Polarcus.

Our current fleet consists of three fully owned and well-equipped offshore support vessels, assuring our clients the ability, capacity and flexibility for highly advanced operations worldwide.
