Project Assurance offshore

Offshore project assurance

Ensuring safety, quality and cost efficiency are top priorities for the managers and operators of offshore projects. Bureau Veritas Solutions Marine & Offshore provides project assurance via on-site, second-party representation as a supplement to our clients’ in-house teams. Our experts ensure that all units undergo proper construction, conversion, or repair work while complying with a full range of relevant QHSE standards.

Offshore projects are complex procedures, with units subject to stringent QHSE standards and regulatory frameworks. To ensure project compliance, operators require the on-site presence of a range of experts to supervise all project aspects. Operators may also need guidance for developing manuals and procedures detailing the safe and efficient operation of units, as well as assistance with the interpretation of classification, statutory and industry standards.

  • Our extensive work with offshore operators demonstrates the high quality of our project management services
  • Our experienced team of engineers and naval architects ensure your project conforms to specification and QHSE requirements
  • Our expertise in QHSE auditing for onshore and offshore oil and gas projects provides unrivaled industry insight
  • Our worldwide presence ensures our teams are easily accessible, even in remote areas
