HOUSTON, Jan. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Oceaneering International, Inc. (NYSE:OII) announces that its Subsea Robotics segment won multiple contracts during the fourth quarter of 2020, with anticipated aggregate revenue in excess of $225 million. These contracts are with international oil and gas operators and marine construction companies, and range in duration from several months to five years. The work scopes are primarily for remotely operated vehicle (ROV) services delivered from floating drilling rigs and multi-service, subsea intervention, and construction vessels. Also included among the contracted scopes are ROV tooling, survey, positioning, and autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) services.
The contract awards reinforce Oceaneering's standing as a premier ROV operator for the offshore oil and gas industry, as many of these projects are in traditional energy developments.

The addition of several long-term contracts reinforces our belief that operators continue to view offshore developments as key portfolio investments. Our offshore robotics resources, coupled with an increasing capacity to work remotely with less on-site intervention, enhance job safety, reduce environmental impacts, and bring cost efficiencies to our customers.
