Forum Energy Technologies has entered into a partnership with Deepsea Technologies Equipamentos Industriais Ltda (Deepsea Technologies) on March 17 to represent its operations in Brazil as part of the business’ long-term growth strategy in South America.
Deepsea Technologies provides engineered products and services to the oil and gas industry globally. It has a key focus in delivering solutions for subsea and topside production systems and subsea intervention systems.
The partnership will see Deepsea Technologies provide business development and engineering support on behalf of FET in Brazil. It will also deliver full servicing, repair, calibration, upgrades and modifications for FET remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and associated tooling. Deepsea Technologies will also have responsibility for the repair and calibration of FET torque machines.
“We continue to see strong demand for our products in Brazil and recognize the need to appoint a local partner to increase our in-country presence and support our ambitious strategy,” Kevin Taylor, FET’s, vice president of subsea vehicles, said. “It’s important that we work with partners who can deliver the high quality of service FET is known for. Deepsea Technologies is a well-respected business and the team provides us with a strong channel to complement our existing framework across the academic, survey and energy markets.
The system provides equipment health, operational and production insights.
Skandi Niteroi will operate mostly in shallow water, while Skandi Vitória will work in shallow and deep water. Both vessels will perform decommissioning and subsea installation work.
