Industry Highlights 

Meeting the Deepwater Challenge

As the worldwide search for hydrocarbons moves into ultra‑deep waters, the technical challenges multiply and the scale of the investment required to safely deliver these projects continues to escalate. Two companies that have been at the forefront of meeting this challenge for many years through both leadership and technical innovation in the Gulf of Mexico, West Africa and other deepwater locations are INTEC Engineering and WorleyParsons Sea.

Our acquisition of INTEC has allowed us to forge the capabilities of these two industry leading companies into a single entity known as INTECSEA, thus providing customers with a fully integrated deepwater, subsea, pipelines and floating production capability.

INTECSEA incorporates all the capabilities within INTEC, WorleyParsons Sea and the WorleyParsons floating systems, offshore pipelines and subsea teams. This allows us to offer customers a full service solution in a range of specialty areas, including subsea production, offshore pipelines, marine production risers, flow assurance and floating production systems including all types of deepwater hulls, tendon and mooring systems.

When harnessed with our established capability in the design of offshore facilities ranging from the simplest of unmanned platforms through to complex floatover topsides weighing up to 30,000 tonnes, the WorleyParsons Group is now able to offer customers a single integrated project delivery service from “wellhead to the market” for their most challenging deepwater developments.

INTECSEA will provide our deepwater customers with a shorter project delivery cycle, advanced technologies to enhance project economics, reduced interface management requirements and, most importantly, a level of project delivery certainty that only comes from a highly experienced and unified team operating under a single leadership structure.
