The subsea industry has innovated, developed and matured over the last 30 years. Subsea equipment has been widely field proven although the next decade of field developments are likely to include much tougher conditions - longer tiebacks, deeper water, harsher environments and more remote locations.
Since purchase of VetcoGray in 2007, GE has invested heavily in subsea product development, service capability upgrades and technology migration to allow learnings from the wider GE portfolio to enhance it's already considerable subsea capabilities.
