Achieving the potential of the subsea sector

Backed by a global team of oil and gas experts, we work together with operators, suppliers, governments and industry associates as an independent service provider.

Subsea facilities

Subsea facilities are playing an increasingly important role in the creation of cost-efficient field developments. As a means to tackle both new and existing exploration and production challenges, today's oil and gas projects commonly involve a subsea concept.

Buoyed by developments in technology and technical expertise, subsea concepts have become a safe, mature and increasingly cost-effective option for operators looking to address both existing and new resources. However, for the sector to achieve its full potential, costs, quality and technical demands need to be addressed. 

The leading technical advisor

We work together with operators, suppliers, governments and industry associates as an independent service provider, offering assurance and advisory services for a range of systems and components. Whether subsea systems and components are destined for installation in shallow or deep waters, our expertise covers all phases of the asset lifecycle. Our in-depth knowledge includes that of Xmas trees and wellheads, manifolds and connection systems, risers, flowlines, umbilicals and power cables, subsea processing systems, power and transmission systems; and drilling, well and workover systems.

Assets in focus

With our depth of expertise and experience, we are well placed to understand the complexities of specific subsea system components and how they interact. Working with our customers and partners, we develop robust solutions to continuously develop the sector.
