Increasing value with world class operations and services

AKOFS Offshore is a provider of vessel-based subsea well construction and intervention services to the oil and gas industry.

With a highly competent and diverse organization we cover all phases from conceptual development to project execution and offshore operations. The company operates three state-of-the-art vessels, the AKOFS Seafarer, the AKOFS Santos and the Aker Wayfarer. Our vessels are designed to perform operations in up to 3,000 meters (9,800 feet) of water.

Our main markets are in Brazil, North Sea, West Africa, and the Gulf of Mexico.

With new technology, world class equipment and an experienced team we provide superior deepwater oilfield services to leading oil and gas producers and subsea service providers around the globe. The company is positioned to benefit from growth in the well intervention market and increased demand for efficient installation of production equipment as oil and gas producers venture into increasingly deep waters.

Strong and experienced owners

In September 2016 AKOFS Offshore (“AKOFS”) and Akastor ASA (“Akastor”) entered a strategic partnership with the leading Japanese investment company Mitsui & Co Ltd ("Mitsui") and its shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd ("MOL") to jointly own the SESV vessel Skandi Santos. Following this, Akastor entered into a Share Purchase Agreement in June 2018, where each of Mitsui and MOL purchased 25% of the shares in AKOFS from Akastor forming a Joint Venture ownership of AKOFS Offshore.

The remaining 50% will continue to be owned by Akastor. Through this transaction, Mitsui and MOL will, as a long-term business partner, together with Akastor, assume an active role in the further support and development of AKOFS Offshore.  AKOFS Offshore is dedicated to developing long term value for our stakeholders. At the same time our owners play an important role with experience, dedication and strong financial positions. This will in the coming years enable us to develop services for demanding customers around the world.
