The offshore oil and gas industry has grown exponentially in the last few decades and despite encountering some difficultly, the industry is now showing signs of recovery with a positive outlook for the coming years. Rig utilisation remains at significantly lower levels than when compared to a few years ago, but is slowly recovering. Utilisation of offshore vessels has been lower in recent years, with high levels of inactivity and periods of lay-up.
Offshore oil and gas units are highly-complex assets and cover various stages of the oil exploration process, including jack up rigs, drill ships, fixed platforms, semi-submersibles and well intervention vessels. In addition, there is an army of supporting vessels such as OSV's, PSV's and Anchor Handlers. Each of these vessels are uniquely different and requires a deep understanding of the sector and of the complexities of each of the assets which support this area of industry.
At Idwal we have the experience and the inspection methodologies in place to support our clients who are exposed to the offshore oil and gas sector. We have inspected all types of offshore assets and have developed an individual inspection framework for each segment along with a pool of highly experienced and dedicated surveyors positioned where they need to be, and who have the necessary skills and experience to deliver a critical assessment of any asset type.
Our offshore surveyors are located in key locations such as: Aberdeen (UK), Gulf of Mexico (USA), West Africa, Ciudad del Carmen (Mexico), Macau (Brazil) and many more.
As always we will dispatch the most appropriate surveyor based upon the specific skill sets, background and location, ensuring always that we deliver a first class inspection and an objective, accurate and easy-to-understand report.
