Bluestream Offshore and Sky-Futures have announced a partnership providing a turn key offshore inspection service to the Dutch North sea oil and gas market.
According to the statement by Bluestream, this move further enhances both companies’ positions as leaders in the offshore oil and gas inspection market.
The relationship will provide clients with a total solution utilizing Sky-Futures’ advanced unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) inspection and measurement services, Bluestream explains.
“This combined with Bluestream Offshore’s complementary rope access, diving and ROV inspection, repair and maintenance services will provide a unique advantage for our customers in their maintenance campaigns and projects,” the company said. The inspection service will be delivered out of Bluestream’s Den Helder office.
Bluestream Offshore Managing Director, Rolf de Vries said: “This partnership is a good example of embracing innovations in the inspection market. We recognize the professional attitude of Sky-Futures, with emphasis on safety, knowledge of UAV systems and flare technology. The UAV services can be seen as an extension of our own topside inspection capabilities. Through the partnership we aim to provide a wider range of services to our clients to deliver the most effective solution. The added value that UAV inspections have to offer for clients shows great potential.”
Sky-Futures is a UK-based company providing UAV inspection services to clients globally in the oil and gas sector. Sky-Futures have recently developed proprietary DTL-VU software that is used to measure defects and corrosion.
Chris Blackford, Sky-Futures’ Operations Director: “The partnership will enable us to immediately add value to Bluestreams’ existing clients both offshore and onshore, whilst strengthening the joint proposition for the future.”
