A Guide to Subsea Project Management and the Standard Procedures of Ocean Observing Neworks

by Karen Page Freelance Web Developer

Subsea engineering companies offer, via the use of subsea system procurement, the benefit of offering their clients telecommunications systems. These undersea cables also provide means of deep sea observation, enabling labs to undergo scientific and environmental research projects. Some of these companies specialize in the planning and development of subsea ocean observing networks, supporting oceanographic research, environmental baselines, and long-term monitoring.


As oceanographic technology advances through empirical research, the ocean observing market develops and grows into a key source of information for the science and energy industries. If you are considering investing in a project undersea, you might consider research companies which specialize in planning, engineering, implementation and operations.


The best company to choose would in theory be one which cares about project success. By mitigating the significant risks inherent in a subsea network development project, a company demonstrates reliability with subsea project management. Any undersea undertaking must address both ocean research and societal needs. In the case of ocean observation, the call of environmental responsibility rings especially clearly. The company you choose to invest in should possess a wish to foster and facilitate international collaboration for collective benefit, building and maintaining collaborative teams of global experts with diverse expertise and building ocean observing community capacity by supporting regional to global systems.


The Nuts and Bolts of Maintaining an Ocean Observing Network

In order to maintain a network which observes the ocean, you are going to need a diligent team. You run into difficulties during ocean observation from a number of causes, including faulty equipment, strong currents or the earth’s crust shaking undersea. Therefore, the business which you choose will have a reliable integrated observation system. This system should in some capacity measure ocean physics, biogeochemistry, and ocean biology and ecosystems. By addressing the variables which need to be measured, their approach to measuring them, and how their data and products will be managed and made widely available, companies such as these model a sense of scientific and environmental responsibility.


Oceanographers have established a ‘framework’ of sorts: a means of coordinating observation processes by organizing them around “essential ocean variables (EOVs)” rather than by specific observing systems platforms, programs, or regions. These ocean observing networks thrive on a consistent, unchanging set of observational variables.

The team you are using for ocean observation should be able to secure documentation and sharing of best practices, assessment of readiness levels, development of implementation strategies and coordination of activities across local, national, regional and international communities.


This team will assess the fitness-of-purpose of data and information streams resulting from observations to improve their recommendations. Subsea procurement teams are the core of the observing system. They will support specific activities articulated by the other operational teams and be the core drivers of community commitment and contributions to the environment surrounding your project.


What You Should Look For in Subsea Project Management

In terms of project management, you should make sure your team offers a skill base and knowledge of the undersea environment, and what best practices can maintain this environment.  Furthermore, this team will manage all project phases for operations, including complex well intervention and unconventional well abandonment projects.


With ocean network observation, subsea project management, and subsea system procurement, you are dealing with a scientifically capable field of researchers. However, having a responsible set of professionals, even among a field of accomplished scientists, sets a company apart.
