DEEPOCEAN ACQUIRES DELTA SUBSEA

DeepOcean has acquired Delta SubSea LLC and expanded its presence into the US Gulf of Mexico.

Delta SubSea is an agile and cost effective provider of Inspection Maintenance and Repair (IMR) and light construction services with a strong focus on the US Gulf of Mexico (GOM) and US based customers with international operations such as West Africa, Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana. The company owns and operates ten Schilling manufactured Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs) from its operating base in Montgomery, Texas. Delta SubSea has a proven track record of delivering IMR and construction support services to a variety of international oil companies in its core markets. The entire ROV fleet is currently mobilized on a fleet of six state-of-the-art subsea construction vessels of which four are Jones Act complaint. Delta SubSea has an engineering and consulting division and an in-house subsea tooling solutions division that supports customers with innovative and fit for purpose tooling solutions.

The GOM is a key region for DeepOcean and owning and expanding a platform for the provision of life-of-field subsea services to our customers is one of our main strategic objectives. This acquisition will allow DeepOcean to expand its current operations in the Mexican segment of the GOM into the US segment of the GOM. Delta SubSea will also be DeepOcean’s vehicle for offshore renewables projects in US waters. “We are excited that Delta SubSea’s President Scott Dingman and the Delta organisation have decided to join DeepOcean. Scott will play a key role in DeepOcean’s GOM activities”, said Ottar K. Mæland, DeepOcean’s interim CEO.  

Scott Dingman, President of Delta SubSea stated, “I view this as a great opportunity to continue to build on the successes of Delta SubSea and DeepOcean. Going forward we will be able to offer our clients a broader set of comprehensive engineering and subsea services in a significantly broader geographic context. Delta SubSea’s track record and experience will be complemented by DeepOcean’s experience in SURF, trenching and power cable installation, larger scale projects, project management and engineering capabilities. It is a very exciting time at Delta for all of us and we are looking forward to the expanded services that this acquisition allows Delta SubSea to offer to our clients”.
