World Marine LLC, Pascagoula MS

(formerly Ham Marine, Friede Goldman Offshore, Signal International)

Most recent update: January 11, 2016.


Friede Goldman Offshore was created in 1999 by the merger of TDI-Halter with Ham Marine.  Their Pascagoula shipyard was a new facility, developed with Title XI financing for the construction, conversion and repair of offshore drilling rigs.  It was acquired by Signal International in 2002 out of the bankruptcy of Friede Goldman Halter.  Signal filed for Chapter 11 in 2015 and the company was restructured at the end of that year as World Marine LLC.  The yard is on the west side of Bayou Casotte: see it from the air on Google here.
