Subsea Projects

We contract, manage, engineer, and execute projects using our global vessel fleet, advanced technologies, and highly skilled personnel.

Our integrated teams of project managers, engineers, and technicians collaborate to meet the requirements of your scope of work.

We deliver project-specific, integrated solutions to meet your requirements.

  • Cost efficiency
  • Risk reduction
  • Flexibility in scheduling
  • Streamlined vendor management
  • Application of advanced technologies
  • Regulatory compliance

From Engineering Design to Decommissioning

Focusing on deepwater subsea installations and field developments, we deliver tailored solutions—from the routine to the extreme. We provide fit-for-purpose engineering design through the entire asset lifecycle, including decommissioning.

Our broad capabilities include a wide portfolio of integrated subsea project solutions.

  • Project management and engineering services
  • Inspection, maintenance, repair (IMR), and refurbishment of subsea facilities
  • Deepwater subsea tie-back installation and intervention
  • Subsea inspection and integrity management
  • Design, fabrication, and installation of I- and J-tube clamp systems
  • Procurement and installation of subsea coiled tubing flowlines, flexible flowlines, umbilicals, flying leads, jumpers, pipeline end terminations (PLETs), and subsea structures
  • Flowline pigging and testing programs
  • Deepwater pipeline hot taps and pipeline remediation projects
  • Plug and abandonment (P&A) of subsea trees and infrastructure
  • Manned saturation diving services
  • Subsea development surveys, salvage operations, long baseline (LBL) arrays, ultrashort baseline (USBL) arrays
  • Strake installation to tension leg platforms (TLPs)
  • Hydrotesting and commissioning of subsea field developments
  • Steel catenary riser (SCR) tie-ins
  • Choke and pod change-outs
  • Mattress installations
Project scopes are supported by our fleet of multi-service vessels (MSVs), diving support vessels (DSVs), and research vessels.

We increase safety and efficiency during installation, operation, and recovery.

Our engineers use the latest technology and advanced processes to ensure that your high-value and project-critical flexible and rigid products can be safely installed and retrieved.

We determine the safe envelope by running simulations of minimum, maximum, and nominal offsets for current and wave conditions. We also model initiation, abandonment, and recovery with sophisticated software based on finite element analysis (FEA).

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.
