Gulf Island Fabrication, Inc. is a leading fabricator of offshore drilling and production platforms and other specialized structures used in the development and production of offshore oil and gas reserves. Structures and equipment fabricated by the Company include jackets and deck sections of fixed production platforms, hull and deck sections of floating production platforms (such as tension leg platforms), piles, wellhead protectors, subsea templates and various production, compressor and utility modules. The Company believes it is one of only three domestic companies capable of fabricating fixed offshore production platforms, including jackets, for installation in water depths greater than 300 feet. The Company's focus on controlling costs and providing high quality, reliable products and services has enabled it to be profitable for each year since 1988. Demand for the Company's products and services is primarily a function of the level of offshore oil and gas activity in the Gulf of Mexico and to a leer extent, offshore areas in West Africa and Latin America.

The Company's facilities are located on 597 acres, of which 250 acres are currently developed for fabrication activities with 347 acres available for expansion. These facilities allow the Company to build jackets for fixed production platforms for use in water depths up to 800 feet and deck sections for fixed or floating production platforms for use in unlimited water depths. In addition, the Company is able to build certain hull sections of tension leg platforms, typically for use in water depths greater than 1000 feet.
