Subsea

Subsea oil and gas production is a technology- oriented business, and specialist subsea consulting firms are focused on “hard” technologies. They lack expertise in the so-called “soft” areas that are so important to managing assets, whether above or under the water. Without best-practice asset management, the technical advantages of expensive, exotic hardware are unlikely to make the contribution to the bottom line that you were promised - having a detrimental effect to your offshore production.

New Build and Construction Subsea Services

At Lloyd's Register we provide design appraisal, fabrication and construction, installation and commissioning, and the ongoing operational monitoring and equipment inspections of subsea installations such as FPSOs, offshore platforms, semi-submersibles and subsea installations. We also supply independent compliance services that allow our clients to meet national and international codes and standards and/or their own specifications requirements.
