Marine and offshore construction covers a wide range of structures and facilities, from wharfs and piers, to shipbuilding, to offshore platforms and pipelines. These structures are built either onshore off the water, onshore at a fabrication yard and transported offshore, or at a location away from the shore. The purpose of these projects is to provide the infrastructure for the offshore transportation of goods and services, and the production of valuable resources such as oil and gas.
Marine contractors are typically dependent on the price of oil and gas, and there is an influx in the marketplace of new contractors that do not understand the challenges and risks in the industry. There are different laws and regulatory requirements associated with offshore work, and the projects are more complex and require expensive equipment. Marine and offshore work is one of the most hazardous work environments; working on and near the water creates a challenging work environment that is highly dependent on the weather.
Marine Worldwide has substantial EPC experience built on our broad background from engineering and construction to claims and litigation spanning the upstream oil and gas industry. Specializing in this industry, we are knowledgeable of the inherent difficulties of these types of projects, as well as the associated commercial, technical, and legal aspects.
Marine Worldwide understands the unique challenges on marine and offshore projects that can lead to substantial schedule and cost overruns and impact productivity. Our team of construction specialists tailors its services to suit the specific needs of each individual client. We assist industry owner and contractor clients with claims and litigation by evaluating these issues and risks and providing expert opinions and testimony, when necessary.

The search for new subsea oil and gas fields, particularly in deep water, will continue to grow as older and more mature land-based and shallow-water fields diminish. It is critical that the offshore oil and gas industry maintains energy independence and develops new sources of fuel vital to the global economy. However, the industry faces increased challenges due to expanding frontiers and adjustments to advancing technology in the construction and installation of subsea pipelines; platforms (fixed platforms, SPARS, tension leg platforms, and semi-submersibles); rigs (jack-up and drill ships); and other drilling production equipment.
Marine Worldwide has experience working throughout the world with oil and gas owners and operators, marine and drilling contractors, and oil field service and equipment companies on offshore projects in various stages of dispute, from claims to litigation. Clients rely on Marine Worldwide to resolve construction claims, schedule delays, and cost overruns, among other complex issues.
