On an annual basis, Aqueos routinely completes several hundred miles of subsea external pipeline inspections utilizing in-house owned & operated Remote Operated Vehicles (ROV) as well as diver assisted inspections. These projects are completed in accordance with the Technical Guidelines mandated by the Mineral Management Service (MMS). Aqueos’ Diving & ROV Personnel are trained for all tasks in accordance with the Operator Qualification (OQ Rule) as mandated by the Department of Transportation (DOT) Pipeline water depths for projects completed to date range from 40 to 1200 feet. At the completion of each project formal reports are compiled documenting the findings of each inspection.

During our history, Aqueos has completed numerous pipeline repairs in different water depths utilizing manned & unmanned diving techniques on the West Coast; offshore California and Central America, as well as in the Gulf of Mexico. Pipelines have ranges in size from 6-inch to 24-inch in diameter. These repairs have been completed using pipeline end connectors and split clamps manufactured by Quality Connectors Systems (QCS), Oil States, PLIDCO and others.


On an annual basis, Aqueos routinely completes in-water subsea platform inspections in accordance with API RP2A guidelines. These in-water “jacket” inspection projects are completed to either a Level II or Level III/IV specification dependent on the date of the last inspection. Aqueos inspector divers are well trained and meet the requirements set forth by ASNT to complete VT/UT and MPI Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) type inspections. At the completion of each project formal reports are compiled documenting the findings of each inspection.


Aqueos has identified the demand to expand its operating lines to now include civil projects as well as Military contracts and the offshore Renewable Sector. To this end, the Company’s Management has invested in additional personnel and resources dedicated to this expanded market. Project Management, Logistics and Estimating support are strong on both coasts. We can provide surface, Nitrox, mixed-gas and saturation diving in water depths to 1,000’. Our marine fleet includes diving support vessels and ROV’s. We are classified as a ‘small business’ for federal projects.
