Our advisory services build on the insights from our best-in-class product suite, years of industry experience and a broad industry network as a result of providing advisory to the leading players in the subsea industry. Key to this service is the ability to understand all the moving parts, such as E&P project portfolios and sensitivity, technology trends, capacity in the supply chain, cost structure and development, and more. We work with oil companies, suppliers, investors and organizations to help them assess business plans, build strategies for the long term, act on opportunities and outperform peers.
