Washington, D.C. – The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) today named Oceaneering International, Inc. as the recipient of the 2016 Safety-in-Seas (SIS) Safety Practice Award.  Kevin McEvoy, CEO of Oceaneering International, accepted the award at the NOIA annual meeting in Washington, DC.

“We are very pleased to be selected for this prestigious recognition. Through rigorous risk analysis with our customer, we developed multiple redundant, fail-safe systems to safely conduct these complex subsea operations in deep water,” said Kevin McEvoy, CEO of Oceaneering International, Inc.

Oceaneering was recognized for the innovative and incident-free completion of a subsea well stimulation campaign, using a multipurpose service vessel instead of a work-over rig.

NOIA President Randall Luthi said, “The offshore industry serves a vital role in meeting the nation’s energy needs.  Oceaneering’s innovative and incident-free achievement demonstrates their continued commitment to performing essential services while delivering an unparalleled record of safety and operational competency. I congratulate Oceaneering on this achievement and for their valuable contribution to the safety enhancement of the offshore service industry.”

Oceaneering’s award-winning entry was selected by an independent panel of judges from the U.S. Coast Guard, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, the National Academy of Sciences Transportation Review Board, and an industry safety consultant.

Since 1978, NOIA has held the SIS awards competition to recognize those who have contributed to improving the safety of life in the offshore energy industry. The Culture of Safety Award was added to the competition in 2014 to honor overall organizational immersion in and commitment to safety, which has resulted in remarkable, measurable, and sustained safety performance over a prolonged period of time.
