Oceaneering International has agreed to acquire US-based offshore mapping services provider C & C Technologies (C&C) for around $230m.
Louisiana-based C&C provides a range of survey and mapping services for the land and offshore oil and gas industry, including ocean-bottom mapping services in deepwater using autonomous underwater vehicles and marine construction surveys for both surface and subsea assets.
C&C also provides satellite-based positioning services for drilling rigs and seismic and construction vessels.
The company offers land and near-shore survey services along the US Gulf Coast and in Mexico, and undertakes shallow water conventional geophysical surveys in the US Gulf of Mexico.
The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to be completed in early April.
C&C will retain its name and continue to be headquartered in Lafayette, Louisiana.
