Cortez Subsea provides a range of subsea services and products in installation, inspection, intervention and decommissioning to UK and international clients in the offshore energy industry.
The company works in collaboration with DeepTech Oil Services, Offshore Technology Solution Ltd (Trinidad), and MCS (Egypt) to provide a broad range of specialties to its clients.
Mr Cowie said, “More than 40% of UK production is now via subsea systems. To ensure the North Sea remains a buoyant and competitive region for operators in a competitive, global market, we believe collaboration is essential. The application of new technology in subsea projects can enable the UK’s oil and gas reserves to be extracted more cost effectively.
“We have a network of collaboration partners which forms an important element of our integrated service and product capability. Our combined team provides a unique blend of sector experience and expertise.
“2013 looks to be an exciting year with significant investment in powered reel drive systems for installing flexible flowlines, umbilicals and power cable and ROV technology. The future is bright for subsea in the North Sea and we hope Cortez Subsea will be at the helm of this surge in activity. Pamela, Anthony and Charlie join at the perfect time to drive our growth and ensure our customers benefit from the specialist services and technology required in today’s market.”
