Subsea technology

Existing, easy-to-access resources are becoming increasingly scarce, and new discoveries are often more difficult to extract, driving an explosion of developments in subsea production and processing technology.  

Autonomous and robotic technology is providing more cost effective ways to access previously unreachable areas, whilst developments that enable oil and gas firms to scan pipelines and increase capabilities at extreme depths continue to emerge.  

The subsea specialists at HGF combine their strong academic backgrounds and industry experience to enable innovating subsea companies and operators to fully protect their intellectual property. From multinational petroleum companies to research institutions, the team works closely with clients to monetise inventions, retain competitive advantage and ensure freedom to operate in the long-term.
