Subsea services and technology products company, Cortez Subsea, has secured a six-figure contract with BHP Billiton Trinidad for inspection services in Trinidad and Tobago.

A dedicated team of eight personnel from the Aberdeen-based company will begin the work in June 2014, using its Structure Commander software to inspect six offshore platforms in the Greater Angostura field, located in the Eastern Venezuela Basin.

The contract win follows several on-going projects involving the company’s range of subsea intervention applications and onshore data processing after a significant investment by Cortez Subsea in new equipment and technologies over the past 12 months.

Managing director, Alasdair Cowie, said: “We are extremely pleased to be awarded this contract with BHP Billiton. By increasing our capabilities across asset inspection software over the past year, we are now reaping the rewards with significant business opportunities.

“Knowing we have won this project based on our software capabilities, as well as providing a reliable and highly-skilled team of professionals to process the data while at the same time maintaining a cost effective solution to clients, demonstrates the level of confidence in our ability to deliver globally. This strongly fits in with our strategy to expand and grow the company both in Europe and across the world.”

Cortez Subsea provides a range of subsea services and products to UK and international clients in the offshore energy industry. Structure Commander is one of a suite of software applications which aid in the planning and managing of structure and pipeline integrity from data acquisition, eventing, digital video, processing, to charting and reporting.
