Oceaneering PortVision 360 Vessel Tracking

In 2006, four major refineries in the Sabine-Neches waterway funded an initiative to use newly mandated automatic identification system (AIS) signals to monitor vessel traffic around their terminals. The goal was to increase efficiency, reduce cost, and improve operations for all stakeholders in the waterway.

In 2007, the Oceaneering® PortVision®
service launched.

Since then, the PortVision service has been the premier AIS-based vessel tracking service in the maritime industry. Our web-based service provides a visual display of real-time vessel activities around the world. You can track your fleet of vessels, set email and text alerts for various vessel activities, filter out unnecessary data, and create custom vessel zones around your marine assets.

Historical Vessel Data

If you are in need of historical AIS information, our PortVision service data warehouse has more than 100 billion vessel event records dating back as far as 2007. You can view a vessel’s trackline on the map, export position and event reports, and use an animated vessel playback to see exactly what occurred during an incident. The PortVision service also offers additional satellite AIS coverage for tracking vessels in the middle of the ocean or in very remote areas.
Thee Oceaneering® PortVision® 360 service was our update to the original system. The PortVision 360 service has all of the same features of the original, plus a new user interface, more powerful alerts, real-time weather filters, redesigned vessel tracks, and more.

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.
