Through these values, we have built our reputation as an organization that requires ethical business practices and high levels of integrity in all of our business transactions. Oceaneering’s Core Values underlie our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and related policies and procedures (collectively, our “Code of Conduct”), which guide our employees and business associates on a daily basis.
In addition, Oceaneering recognizes that the strength of its reputation is based not only on our own conduct, but also on the behavior of those with whom we do business. As such, it is our goal to ensure that our relationship with suppliers reflects and supports the same high ethical standards. We are committed to work with our partners to promote responsible practices in general and throughout our supply chain around the world. Our intent is to ensure that all our partners acknowledge our values and share our commitment to conduct business in an ethical, legal, and socially responsible manner.

Ways to Contact Us
Since our founding in the early 1960s, Oceaneering has expanded and grown globally to service several industries such as the offshore energy industry, defense, entertainment, material handling, aerospace, science, and renewable energy industries.
In 1964, Mike Hughes and Johnny Johnson formed a Gulf of Mexico diving company called World Wide Divers. The company grew in response to increasing demand for their services and in 1969 merged with two other diving companies to form Oceaneering International, Inc.
To solve the toughest challenges, we do things differently, creatively, and smarter. As your trusted partner, our unmatched experience and truly innovative portfolio of technologies and solutions give us the flexibility to adapt and evolve, regardless of market conditions.
Our mission is to solve the unsolvable. We thrive by creating industry-changing technically creative solutions for the most complex operational challenges under water, on land, and in space. Our five core values establish a common culture and demonstrate what is most important for us as a company.
Since the beginning, the company has transformed from a small regional diving company into a global provider of engineered products and services.
Today, we develop products and services for use throughout the lifecycle of an offshore oilfield, from drilling to decommissioning. We operate the world's premier fleet of work class ROVs. Additionally, we are a leader in offshore oilfield maintenance services, umbilicals, subsea hardware, and tooling. We also serve the aerospace, defense, and theme park industries.
Underpinning everything we do, safety is not only the foundation of our core values, but it is vital to our unmatched performance record and company culture. The industries we serve are as diverse as they are complex. Whether we are engineering deepwater umbilicals or developing robotics for aerospace applications, the safety and health of our employees, vendors, and customers is an integral part of our day-to-day business. If we are working, then our responsibility is to be working safely.
Since our inception in 1964, we have placed a high value on employee safety—from diving services and subsea inspection to vessel-based installation operations. We have and will continue to evolve not only our health, safety, and environmental (HSE) processes, but those of the industries in which we work.
Although we have been fatality-free since 1999, our HSE journey goes beyond statistics. As our portfolio of services has grown, we have continued to prioritize and advance our approach to HSE.
