Iremis, ISS and Andrews Survey merged to form subsea company Harkand.

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Harkand is the name of a new subsea oil and gas group launched on 6 of February. Chaired by oil and gas industry veteran Tom Ehret, the company's ambition is to grow to a turnover of $1 billion in the next five years.

Following investment by Oaktree Capital Management in Iremis, Integrated Subsea Services (ISS) and their sister company Andrews Survey last year, the three names have merged to form one group focused on the fast-growing subsea inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) market.

The group will combine proven survey, inspection, repair and maintenance services with the Iremis fleet of multi-purpose diving support vessels, ROV and Air Diving support vessels and ISS' fleet of 23 remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and teams of ROV operators, surveyors and divers.

The vessel fleet includes the new diving support vessels, Harkand Atlantis and Harkand Da Vinci.

Nicolas Mouté is the chief executive officer of the Harkand Group.
International operations are headed by Harkand Iremis Managing Director Patrick Chapalain and European Operations are headed by Harkand ISS Managing Director David Kerr.
The group's name, Harkand, comes from mediaeval Arabic literature where it is the name of one of the seven seas.

From its bases in Aberdeen in the UK, Dubai in the Middle-east, Singapore and Perth in Asia Pacific, the group is already carrying out work in the North Sea, Brazil, West Africa, India, Russia and the Caspian, Australia, Vietnam and the Gulf of Mexico.
