Yesco provides mooring and pilotage services at the LNG export terminal at Balhaf with Gruppo Reyser – the largest mooring operator in Spain. The multi-million dollar investments by Yesco involve a commitment to train local staff in the technical aspects of the moorage and piloting service during the seven year contract.
Mooring involves anchoring the LNG vessels to their berths during loading and also piloting them during port visits. We also provide ancillary services to the port including fire fighting, safety and environmental services.
Yesco runs a shipping agency division with offices in principal ports of Yemen and particular focus on the LNG export terminal at Balhaf served from our Mukallah offices. Yesco is fully licensed to provide shipping agency services within the Republic of Yemen and is managed by experienced logistical and shipping experts adhering to best operational and administrative practices.
Yesco provides a full suite of local agency services to its clients related to customs clearance and onshore/offshore services; including general husbandry and documentation support. By making available the full scope of our considerable local resources and facilities we are ready to support our clients both in the course of routine activities as well as in the event of emergencies or situations requiring special assistance.
Yesco Maritime Security, with offices in Yemen and the United Arab Emirates, is fully licensed to provide armed maritime escort and on board patrols to shipping transiting Yemen’s waters. We have also reached agreement with the Omani naval authorities to allow us to commence armed escort operations from Muscat – Yesco is the only company to offer this service.
Our security solutions effectively mitigate shipping and commercial risks arising through the threat of piracy which is becoming an increasingly prevalent menace to shipping plying the strategic route through the Gulf of Aden.

A fleet of escort and patrol boats
