Our Journey So Far

A Chronicle of Our Journey So Far

In this era of the new normal, any business entity that attempts to dig its feet into the new reality thrust upon it by the unexpected emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, and still stands firm, is deserving of accolades.

For Caracal, with a mission to be West Africa’s leading indigenous provider of offshore support vessel and services -both in market share and service reputation, it is gradually writing its success story in the sands of time, while climbing the ladder, rung after rung, towards attaining its desired height of accomplishments.

Looking at Caracal’s chronicle of achievements over its 7 years journey so far, more accomplishments are not too far off. Despite this series of achievements, Caracal’s vision to bring world-class operating standards to support offshore West African oil and gas operators, remains stronger and keeps gaining more grounds.
