    SPECIALIST SERVICES FOR OPERATORS

    OCS provides operators the ability to review and assess their installation options, marine construction budgets and negotiate technical details with potential contractors.

    OCS has experienced personnel who can develop project contracting strategies, prepare marine construction RFQs, ITBs, perform vessel inspections and conduct detailed technical discussions with contractors based on a given scope of work. OCS can both plan the execution and supervise the implementation of a project.

    Engaging OCS at the early stages of a project allows operators to minimize costly scope of work errors, adopt the contracting strategy most suited to the work at hand, identify contractors with the equipment and expertise required for their project, avoid delays due to poor planning or timing and provide operators the resources to manage interfaces in any offshore project.

    Utilizing OCS allows operators to perform owner managed installations using drilling rigs or other equipment taking maximum advantage of field development equipment synergies. OCS can provide the construction experience and know-how for different methodologies and manage the work on behalf of the operator as required.

    SPECIALIST SERVICES FOR CONTRACTORS

    OCS provides marine contractors with key offshore construction management and execution expertise during the project tendering, planning and execution phases of a project.

    OCS has experienced personnel who can assist with tender preparation and technical contract reviews and/or negotiations.

    During the planning and execution phases OCS specialist personnel can perform the detailed planning including preparation of installation procedures and subcontract packages. OCS can also assist with vessel and equipment mobilization and supervision of offshore installation activities.

    OCS has the personnel to relieve contractors of the high cost of increasing their baseline, permanent employee levels in order to deal with one off projects. With the high cost of construction spreads and a competitive contracting environment, good planning and well thought out execution strategies can make the difference between success and failure. OCS helps contractors make that difference..
