Deeply Committed to Excellence
For over 20 years, U.S. Underwater Services, LLC has provided commercial diving, inspection, repair, and maintenance services to industry sectors such as oil and gas, shipping, municipal works, power generation, construction, engineering, defense, and marine infrastructure.
From its 50,000 sq. ft facility in Mansfield, Texas, U.S. Underwater Services manages all of its business operations, sales, equipment maintenance, and product fabrication. The facility also boasts a 22,500 gallon multi-level training tank that is used for certifying underwater welders, ROV and non-destructive testing training operations, underwater videography techniques, equipment and product testing, emergency drills, and demonstrations. This training tank has also been utilized by other companies for the purposes of R&D, product demonstration, and to familiarize company representatives on safe diving techniques. Visitors and client representatives have the opportunity to view these activities from several vantage points—via large portholes, live feed video, or from the surface.
Since 1996, U.S. Underwater Services has been an active member of the Association of Diving Contractors International (ADCI), a professional association that promotes best industry practice with respect to the health and safety of commercial divers and underwater operations worldwide.
Additionally, the company is involved in several industry groups that focus on diver safety and training. One example is the U.S. GoM Diving Safety Workgroup, a non-competitive and non-commercial group of oil and gas operators, transmission companies, commercial diving companies, and industry stake holders that promote safe diving practices in the Gulf of Mexico.
U. S. Underwater Services has been audited by several major oil and gas operators as well as drilling contractors, power generation companies, and government entities to ensure that their operations meet the industry’s most stringent safety standards.
For over 15 years, U.S. Underwater Services has been the leader in MODU inspection, repair, and maintenance services in the Gulf of Mexico.
However, some of the other services that they provide include certified underwater welding; platform and pipeline inspection and repair; site surveys; site clearance and debris removal; NDT services; vessel husbandry; diver- supported dredging; and the refurbishment of coastal structures such as docks, piles, and piers.
The company continually invests in its equipment, training, and facilities in order to expand its capabilities and maintain its reputation as a leading and trusted provider of commercial diving services, both inland and offshore. Combining state-of-the-art equipment and extensive industry experience, U.S. Underwater Services has the capability to complete projects of any scale.
