Supply of Subsea Engineers
“ I need a subsea engineer in West Africa next week - can you help?”
We hold one of the most extensive databases of skilled energy sector workers in the UK and benefit from Subsea personnel who have organised crews to undertake work globally over the past 25 years. The answer is therefore “no problem!”
We understand that supplying the right individual to match our clients’ requirements is crucial.
Our core process is therefore knowing the engineers, finding the right person and making sure they are available. Each individual has differing competence, qualifications, experience and behavioural skills which we log, analyse and seek regular feedback from clients on.
Our solution is therefore comprehensive and up to date. We can accurately select suitable engineers from our intuitive database quickly, check availability and organise mobilisation to meet the most demanding of deadlines.
For example, we regularly support our clients during shipyard activity and between well maintenance when subsea crews are experiencing heavy workloads and generally time to monitor all activity is difficult.
It is therefore no surprise that some of the leading drilling companies rely on the Subsea Masters Team to support their operations when their subsea engineering resource is unavailable or stretched.
“Are your younger engineers struggling to gain experience?”
A key client requirement is sourcing Professional Subsea Engineers with 20+ years' experience, who are able (and willing) to spend dedicated time with less experienced engineers, mentoring them, identifying strengths and weaknesses and developing a knowledge transfer plan.
We find that the majority of our clients do not have the personnel resource available to divert away from ongoing operations leaving a skills gap amongst newly appointed or less experienced engineers.
The mentoring service bridges this gap without affecting operations and ensures that the next generation of engineers has available, expert support to ensure that the right decisions are made.
This will allow your senior supervisors to concentrate on ongoing issues and planning whilst the mentoring is on his doorstep.
“We struggle to secure reliable vendors and don’t have the resources available to ensure procedures are being followed.”
We know that critical assets often require overhaul or inspection and that this can tie up key personnel in the verification of vendor performance.
Subsea Masters can confidently supply time served professionals to monitor vendor performance and ensure that vendors meet the quality and productivity deliverables you set.
This monitoring will include comprehensive reporting to the customer on all aspects of the surveillance, whether new OEM equipment ready for delivery or refurbished equipment at the OEM or customer designated facilities.
Our professionals come with subsea and comprehensive maritime backgrounds backed up with qualifications.
Our aim is to provide clients with the peace of mind that key assets have been afforded the correct level of attention, by qualified personnel and in line with company procedures. We can also then recommend long-term preservation solutions (uniquely available within our Group of Companies), that are being used by the World’s leading energy companies to guarantee asset integrity while in storage.
