Oceaneering Extends AUV Operations to West Africa

Oceaneering Internationa is expanding its presence for autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) survey services to the West African region.

Oceaneering currently serves the U.S Gulf of Mexico with a fleet of commercial AUVs, designed for survey operations in water depths reaching 4,500 meters.

The company is mobilizing one of its 3,000 meter rated AUVs, which is capable of performing deepwater geophysical hazard and pipeline inspection surveys. This advanced AUV provides clients with the necessary deepwater survey capabilities for pipeline surveys, as-built surveys, block surveys, and pipeline inspections.

“Africa is a growing market. By expanding our AUV operations, we will have the opportunity to support new and existing customers more efficiently, and meet the increasing demand for survey services in deepwater blocks of Africa with cost-effective integrated solutions. With our reliable AUV technology, we enable our customers to make informed decisions by providing them with accurate, high resolution information of the seafloor as well as their subsea infrastructure,” said Pat Mannina, vice president, ROV – Americas and Global Survey Services.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
