Conventional Non-Destructive Testing

Your assets are in experienced hands when you trust us to deliver inspection services.

Eliminate the guesswork

From identifying weld defects to evaluating variations in structural properties, we have a solution.
Conventional non-destructive testing (NDT) has long served as the starting point in establishing or evaluating the condition of equipment. Our global reach, including technicians and field-proven solutions, meets your requirements for NDT. We offer solutions for newly-built equipment, existing infrastructure, and decommissioning activities by identifying the appropriate methods for each application.

Our globally-deployable solutions meet your critical and time-sensitive needs for non-destructive testing.

Comprehensive Condition Monitoring Programs

Strategic, interval-based solutions

We enable you to maintain a value-adding, continual view of your assets by deploying advanced condition monitoring technologies. We use data collection on an ongoing basis and at defined intervals to ensure you meet regulatory requirements with the most efficient and safe approach.

  • Reduce safety risk
  • Reduce personnel on board (POB) allocation
  • Deliver improved utilization of inspection resources
  • Provide continuous monitoring of areas of known concern and anomaly locations
  • Monitor and inspect difficult-to-access locations
  • Reduce the cost of repeat inspection

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.
