In-Service Inspection

With more than 50 years of experience providing inspection on critical infrastructure, we deliver optimized, project-appropriate solutions that meet inspection criteria and ensure that your assets are fit for service.

Conventional NDT

Preventing failure by identifying and evaluating flaws
Conventional non-destructive testing (NDT) has long served as the starting point in establishing or evaluating an asset’s fitness for service. From construction to decommissioning, NDT can be used to detect anomalies and defects, some of which may require further specialist inspection or remediation.
We deliver a portfolio of conventional NDT solutions tailored to meet diverse needs.

Advanced NDT: Specialist Inspection Services

Complex concerns demand specialist solutions
In the last two decades, the focus of NDT has advanced to address emerging concerns. So have our services. We provide an extensive range of specialist inspection solutions for applications ranging from detecting complex defects arising during manufacture and construction to process-induced integrity issues in upstream, midstream, and downstream assets.

Subsea Inspection

Integrated solutions for your subsea equipment
We offer an integrated approach and call upon our vast portfolio of products and services to meet your subsea inspection requirements.
From remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and vessels to divers and subsea inspection tooling—we have the portfolio and expertise required to provide cost-effective, optimized subsea inspection and integrity management solutions.

Pipeline Construction NDT

Supporting your construction and pipe laying activities
Our track record places us at the forefront of pipeline NDT technology as we meet your inspection requirements within demanding construction cycles.​ We deploy a variety of radiographic and ultrasonic tools to capture the data you need to confirm compliance with pipeline construction standards.

We provide efficient, reliable detection and characterization of flaws during construction. Our systems are independently qualified by DNV-GL and verified by client validation programs.


Our range of two- and four-wheeled drive crawlers use x-ray or gamma radiation and are capable of operating in pipelines with diameters from 3 to 72 inches.

Automated Ultrasonic Testing (AUT)

For more than a decade, our AUT technologies have been deployed globally to inspect pipelines with diameters from 4 to 48 inches.

Vendor Inspection Services

Ensuring quality and on-time delivery
Our vendor inspection services position us as the key interface to verify that the requirements you have outlined and the quality standards you expect are fully satisfied before a product is dispatched. Our highly skilled teams offer comprehensive services to meet your diverse needs, from vendor audits to shipping inspections.  

Crane and Lifting Equipment Testing and Qualification

Comprehensive services for critical equipment
We offer extensive services for inspection, third-party verification, and certification of cranes and lifting equipment. Our offerings include consultancy, design, and manufacturing of specially designed, purpose-built cranes and lifting gear. We also complete compliance evaluations; risk analysis; and failure mode, effects, and criticality analysis (FMECA).

Company page Since our founding in the early 1960s, Oceaneering has expanded and grown globally to service several industries such as the offshore energy industry, defense, entertainment, material handling, aerospace, science, and renewable energy industries. In 1964, Mike Hughes and Johnny Johnson formed a Gulf of Mexico diving company called World Wide Divers. The company grew in response to increasing demand for their services and in 1969 merged with two other diving companies to form Oceaneering International, Inc. To solve the toughest challenges, we do things differently, creatively, and smarter. As your trusted partner, our unmatched experience and truly innovative portfolio of technologies and solutions give us the flexibility to adapt and evolve, regardless of market conditions. Our mission is to solve the unsolvable. We thrive by creating industry-changing technically creative solutions for the most complex operational challenges under water, on land, and in space. Our five core values establish a common culture and demonstrate what is most important for us as a company. Since the beginning, the company has transformed from a small regional diving company into a global provider of engineered products and services. Today, we develop products and services for use throughout the lifecycle of an offshore oilfield, from drilling to decommissioning. We operate the world's premier fleet of work class ROVs. Additionally, we are a leader in offshore oilfield maintenance services, umbilicals, subsea hardware, and tooling. We also serve the aerospace, defense, and theme park industries. Underpinning everything we do, safety is not only the foundation of our core values, but it is vital to our unmatched performance record and company culture. The industries we serve are as diverse as they are complex. Whether we are engineering deepwater umbilicals or developing robotics for aerospace applications, the safety and health of our employees, vendors, and customers is an integral part of our day-to-day business. If we are working, then our responsibility is to be working safely. Since our inception in 1964, we have placed a high value on employee safety—from diving services and subsea inspection to vessel-based installation operations. We have and will continue to evolve not only our health, safety, and environmental (HSE) processes, but those of the industries in which we work. Although we have been fatality-free since 1999, our HSE journey goes beyond statistics. As our portfolio of services has grown, we have continued to prioritize and advance our approach to HSE.
