DeepOcean was awarded a contract from Statoil for survey and light construction services in 2017.

Offshore work will be undertaken in 2017 with a vessel from DeepOcean’s in-house fleet.
The Superior ROV has been developed to be able to increase productivity of mapping of seabed conditions and existing pipeline infrastructure through increased speed of the ROV and at the same time improve the quality of the data collected.
“We have invested heavily in technology that supports the industries need for increased productivity, lowering the cost base. This award comes in the form of an extension of the work conducted for Statoil in 2016 where we proved significant cost savings for Statoil gaining several weeks of operational time,” DeepOcean Chief Commercial Officer, Ottar Mæland, said.
In 2016 the first commercial project proving the Superior’s benefits was conducted for Statoil under the same frame work agreement as the recent award.
