Diversified services backed by an extensive fleet

Our services include saturation, surface and mixed gas diving, enabling us to provide a full complement of diving in water depths of up to 1,000 feet. We provide saturation diving services in water depths of 200 to 1,000 feet through our fleet of saturation diving vessels and portable saturation diving systems – possibly the largest such fleet in the world. Cal Dive provides surface and mixed gas diving services in water depths typically less than 300 feet through surface diving vessels.

Our fleet of diving support vessels is among the most technically advanced in the industry with features such as dynamic positioning (DP), hyperbaric rescue chambers, multi-chamber systems for split-level operations and moon-pool deployment.

Additional vessels are dedicated exclusively to pipelay and pipe burial services in water depths of up to approximately 700 feet. Pipelay and pipe burial operations typically require extensive use of our diving services; therefore, we consider these services to be complementary.

Additionally we own derrick barges and a combination derrick/pipelay barge.

Scheduling flexibility

Our large fleet, a wide range of capabilities and the advanced technical skills of our personnel enable us to manage turnkey projects while assuring our customers of on time performance.
