Subsea technology company Optime Subsea Services has announced its plans to merge with engineering firm Telemark Technologies to speed-up cost-saving subsea installation solutions for the global oil and gas market. 

Optime Subsea Services aims to save 80% on subsea tree installations and more than 60% on plug and abandonment operations using its rig-less and modular multiCompletionSystem (mCS).

Along with this merger, Norwegian industrial investment company Holta Invest will become a significant shareholder in Optime Subsea Services. 

Holta Invest owner and chairman Kjetil Holta said: “Optime Subsea Services’ solutions primarily consist of leveraging existing technology and integrating this into a new system, based on cost-effective and standardised components. In addition to being more cost-efficient, the solutions provide far more robust and secure operations.

"In addition to being more cost-efficient, the solutions provide far more robust and secure operations."

“We strongly believe in this and that operators are ready for the company’s modular system, which meets the need for cost savings in all phases of a field's lifecycle.”

The merged company will be called Optime Subsea Services and all its co-founders will continue in their individual senior management roles.
