About

For over 21 years Aqueos has continued to serve the oil and gas, civil and military markets, and while we remain committed to providing the same level of service to these industries, our experience has given us the opportunity to respond to the growing needs of the offshore Renewable Energy Sector – and are proud to be at the forefront of this industry in America.

Aqueos has operational facilities in Houston, TX, Lafayette, LA, and Ventura and Santa Barbara, CA, with a planned location in the Northeast to lead operations throughout North America and select international locations.

Mission Values

Aqueos is committed to being a World Class Subsea Service Provider with a focus on: excellence, professionalism, and safety.

Excellence

Since our inception, “Excellence” has been our standard. For Aqueos, Excellence is defined by being the absolute best at what we do and applies for all personnel and teams at Aqueos. “Excellence” has helped us earn the reputation as a value-added solution provider, which translates into:

  • long-term business relationships with our business partners
  • a blue-chip client list
  • the ability to attract the best talent
  • sustainability within our industry 

Professionalism

Part of the value that Aqueos provides to our clients are top tier professionals contributing to solve problems in an efficient, effective, and safe manner. Aqueos’ management encourages continuing professional development as witnessed by the numerous accreditations, advanced degrees, and certifications held by our employees at every level. Aside from these “validations”, Aqueos’ culture encourages:

  • dedication to the task at hand
  • thinking outside the box regarding providing solutions
  • leveraging technology to mitigate risks
  • creating an actively caring team environment 

Safety

The biggest value that Aqueos can provide to our clients, as well to ourselves, is to make sure that everyone completes every task safely – every time. With rigorous training, continuous reinforcement, our robust HSEQ Management System supports an Environment of Active Caring and Incident Free Operations. Aqueos’ exemplary safety performance validates this Culture of Safety. Many processes are considered the “Gold Standard” in the industry. EHS Today Magazine recently recognized Aqueos as one of America’s Safest Companies. Further, the Aqueos HSEQ Management System is continually recognized as “best in class” by many of our blue-chip clients.    

History

In June of 2000, Aqueos Corporation (then Divecon Services) began operation through the acquisition of the former West Coast offices of Stolt Comex Seaway Inc. and Oceaneering International, Inc. This combination has proven to cultivate a highly experienced underwater and marine construction company with an extensive track record and history. Aqueos gained assets from both firms including vessels, remotely operated vehicles (ROV), diving and marine construction equipment, and continues to employ highly experienced management and field staffs of both former West Coast companies.

In 2005, Aqueos expanded operations into the Gulf of Mexico as a result of severe offshore oil and gas infrastructure damage caused by hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Since this time, Aqueos has gained a considerable amount of additional GOM clientele as well as a stellar reputation. Our innovative solutions and rapid response capabilities have made us the first choice for our client’s underwater needs.

Executive Team

The Aqueos team is committed to meeting the specific needs of each of our customers with excellence- every time. In short, we set the standard for premier subsea services.
