Oceaneering International, a sub-sea engineering and applied technology company based in Houston, Texas, was granted the asset integrity contract from a major operator based in Dubai.
The services include Non-destructive testing (NDT) which involves the testing of a material or a component without causing damage to it and fabric maintenance inspection which assure the integrity and assure extended asset life.
The extended contract which spans over 3 years includes 85 offshore platforms that are spread across five producing fields, onshore inspection, and management and NDT work for one of the operator’s gas plants, gas control station and onshore supply base. This is a result of extensive research performed at the company in improving its services in the areas of non-destructive testing and trained its workers and technicians on IRATA’s rope access system. They have remained credible sources of service providers, continually improving in their niche fields.
Gregory Boyle who is the asset regional manager at Oceaneering International based out of Middle East in an interview sounded optimistic about the deal, adding that they were looking forward in continuing the relationship with the operator and would continue to work on new technologies, improve safety conditions and provide extensive support as they had been in the previous contract which had a staff of about 40 which has now grown to a 100. There is substantial growth in the company and its services, which help them stand out amongst others.
