The article discusses the Australia Marine Services (AMS) Tugs and Barges, one of the entries to the North-West Shelf oil and gas support industry. AMS specializes in the building and operation of small to medium-sized vessels, particularly tugs and barges. Some of AMS's barge projects include the AMS Melbourne, AMS 1201 and the AMS 1802. The building by AMS of the vessels as required illustrates the advantages of high-building quality by shipbuilders and AMS's dynamic management style.
