Operation, Maintenance, and Service

Our asset maintenance solutions meet the demands of large assets that are installed in harsh environments and located far from shore. We deliver industry-leading, vessel-based services, and push the boundaries with our autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) and ROV fleets to support your projects both above and below the waterline.

Our diverless inspection services include:

  • Anode depletion checks
  • Subsea weld inspections (piles and jackets)
  • Scour and grout inspections
  • Cable condition surveys
  • Topside asset inspections
  • Monopile inspections
  • Marine growth removal

Our resident E-ROV system and Freedom ROV enable vessel-free inspections by deploying remotely operated assets that live subsea in the field. Piloted over a 4G/LTE connection, data is gathered and assessed remotely, enabling rapid evaluation of assets without deployed personnel or vessels.

Monopile Inspections

For 10 years, robotic crawlers have performed monopile surface inspections, cleaning operations, and ultrasonic weld inspections. Our multi-purpose, crawler system removes the need for people to be in enclosed, confined, and hazardous spaces, and operates in up to 328 ft (100 m).

Marine Growth Removal

Marine growth hinders the performance of dynamic cable applications. Our marine growth removal tools are ROV-deployed and traverse along the cable following the dynamic catenary, removing marine growth and restoring system performance for floating wind, wave, and tidal applications.

Company page 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.
