We are Offshore Independents

About us

Working with a group of 30 engineers who are all specialised in different fields, as well as a clear vision for the future, we can manage oil and gas projects all around the world as well as provide our advice, knowledge and support.

We are independent

In the offshore industry, reliable, independent technical advice is of great importance. We can guarantee this independent advice, because we do not own any assets and because we do not have links with contractors, owners or banks. Since the beginning of our enterprise, this has been our trademark. Our services cover complex engineering analyses, procurement & tendering support and project management & consultancy. We have a loyal and valued customer base consisting of operators, contractors, engineering companies, asset owners, law firms, government and lenders. Together with our sister company ARC-ses we deliver quality engineering support both to the offshore oil and gas as to the renewable industry.

This is our reputation

Safety is the most important factor in any project. But besides safety there are other factors that determine a project’s success. It is our art form to discover what these factors are for each project, and how we can best guarantee a quick and safe operation time.

This practical mind set has allowed us to manage oil and gas projects for over a hundred clients for more than 10 years now. In addition to employees, we have also collected a network of specialists who support us in projects both big and small.
