These last few years are characterized by low oil prices and this fact is having a strong impact on the strategies of Oil & Gas companies.
Oil & Gas companies are also experiencing high costs of off-shore personnel, one of the reasons is the decreased number of skilled personnel available.
As a result of the above, we see a trend within our customers to evaluate how to limit as much as possible the installation and maintenance costs while refurbishing existing off-shore installations or install new platforms.
