An emerging sweet spot for the oil and gas industry, Africa is accelerating exploration and production developments in both its onshore and offshore sectors. National oil corporations are partnering with industry heavyweights from around the globe to rebuild infrastructure in the world's second largest continent. Vast oil and gas reserves are harnessed within Africa's respective countries, as well as the surrounding waters of the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Suez Canal and Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast and the Atlantic Sea to the west.
Installation engineers oversee the critical phase of installing offshore structures, most of which carry a substantial cost and have taken many years to design and construct. They carry out modeling and analysis for installation while looking at different transportation options, site conditions, and available assets. The goal of an installation engineer is to optimize cost, mitigate risks, and ensure safety through precise engineering of the installation process.
