Oil and Gas

We deliver integrated solutions across the life of field to provide greater value and a lower total cost of ownership.

Using integrated tools, services, innovative technology, and manpower, we increase oil and gas project quality and reliability while minimizing risk on a global scale.

Planning and Pre-Drilling

During the earliest stages of field development, we provide front end engineering design (FEED), early-phase, and conceptual studies as well as engineering, surveying, lifecycle integrity, and total cost of ownership planning services.

Drilling and Completions

We provide a wide range of drilling and completions support services from aboard vessels and operational bases around the world. Our portfolio, experience, and footprint enable us to provide customized services rapidly and cost effectively.
We meet operational needs with services, including: remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and tooling, dredging, BOP intervention and control systems, communication solutions, subsea valves, and on-site machining and cutting.

Installation and Construction

We offer the world’s largest fleet of installation, workover, and control systems (IWOCS) in addition to providing fully integrated project management and engineering solutions.
Our solutions cover your operations throughout the project lifecycle, with expertise in flow assurance, vessel services, subsea connections, communications solutions, umbilicals, diving, pipeline repair, and ROV services and tooling.

Production and Maintenance

To enable you to gain the greatest return on your investments, we provide a range of services targeted at increasing production and maintaining critical assets. To date, we have helped increase customer production by 15 million bbl.
To this end, we provide services related to ROVs and tooling, engineering, flow assurance, IWOCS, pipeline repair, asset integrity, diving, communications solutions, asset tracking, dredging, umbilicals, cutting, and inspection, maintenance, and repair.


We plan and execute cost-effective solutions that enable the safe and efficient removal of infrastructure such as platforms, conductors, subsea hardware, and wells. From first cut to removal, we help streamline your entire decommissioning process.
To decrease risk in decommissioning oil and gas assets, we deploy ROV services and tooling, vessels, cutting and dredging tools, diving services, and communications solutions.


Our risk-based assessment and inspection approach has evolved to meet the changing demands of the oil and gas market. We provide inspection services and integrity management solutions tailored to meet your needs.
Our lifecycle integrity, non-destructive testing, crane and lifting, on-site machining and cutting, and composite repair services enable you to achieve your onshore objectives faster and more reliably.

Industry Recognition and Awards

As a leader in oilfield products and services, we have been recognized throughout the years for our technological innovation and commitment to excellence.

In EnergyPoint Research's annual Oilfield Products & Services Customer Satisfaction Survey, we have consistently ranked first across the Oilfield Products market. Our performance as of the group's 2016 survey is as follows.

  • First in "ROVs" for nine surveys (since 2006)
  • First in "performance and reliability" and "subsea equipment" for seven surveys
  • First in "deepwater applications" for six surveys
  • First in "offshore applications" for two surveys
  • First in "harsh environment wells," "ultra-deepwater applications," and "post-sale support" for one survey

We have also been recognized for introducing industry-changing technologies in the offshore oil and gas arena by the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC). Below are our past OTC Spotlight on New Technology Award wins.

  • Remote piloting and control technology (RPACT), 2016
  • Deepwater pile dredge, 2015
  • MagnaScan™ subsea inspection system, 2015
Our safety performance in offshore environments has also been commended. We received the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) Safety in Seas "Safety Practice Award" in 2016.

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.
