About Us Shepherd Offshore
Delivering the best solutions and expertise
The Shepherd family have been successfully serving the North East economy for over 100 years and have made a significant contribution to the continued growth of the offshore sector on the banks of the River Tyne in Newcastle.
Shepherd Offshore is one of the UK’s leading service providers, developing and operating facilities while supporting world class manufacturing within the North East of England based on the North Bank of the River Tyne.
The success and influence of Shepherd Offshore is shared across the North East economy. For over 40 years, we have made significant contribution to the continued growth of the offshore and energy sector along the River Tyne, with direct and indirect beneficial impacts on the local economy. Developing local infrastructure with high-value capacity and capabilities, we support services attracting the offshore, marine, renewable energy providers and construction industries to the River Tyne.
The manufacturing and construction companies which have co-located within the Shepherd Offshore facilities, have had access to cost effective development and service solutions supported by an established infrastructure and sound logistical capabilities with suitable expansion areas, as well as other critical support services. Offshore Technology Park and Neptune Energy Park are homes to established companies such as JDR, Bridon-Bekaert, Royal IHC, Baker Hughes Energy Technology, Technip FMC Umbilicals, Newcastle College Renewables Academy, and the Newcastle University National Centre for Subsea and Offshore Engineering Academy. Shepherd Offshore has developed and funded these bespoke facilities and manufacturing clusters with the company value, focusing on providing first class services to compliment these manufacturing companies so they can compete globally.
For Shepherd Offshore to be one of UK’s leading service providers for the Oil and Gas sector, Marine, Renewable Energy providers and Construction Industries, we aim to provide a bespoke, fully integrated offshore supply base ensuring safe and effective on-time delivery of product to projects, as well as numerous critical support services. Not only are we looking to meet our clients’ standards, but the standards of their clients too; we are looking to exceed all expectations.
It is Shepherd Offshore’s quest to bring the once leading engineering heritage of the Newcastle Quayside shipyards back into operation and create opportunities for the local community and surrounding area. Although the former industry is long gone, our goal is to breathe fresh life into the land which was once vibrant with the energy and activity of those historic yards. We are continually striving to create new capacity on the Tyne through responsible regeneration.
Through investment and careful planning, our aim is to promote strategic land assembly, which in turn will transform the area and regional economy, creating a strong pipeline of property developments and becoming a standout name in this division.
