Subsea Vessel Ops Predicted to Grow Over Coming Years

well as IRM-related vessel spending. The majority of pipeline related projects are expected to occur in Iran and Kuwait. Field development-related vessel expenditure contributes marginally to the region’s spending over 2015-2019 with the exception of deepwater offshore gas field developments in Noble Energy’s Leviathan field. North America North America is a large, mature subsea market with deepwater developments predominantly in the US Gulf of Mexico.  Over the next five years, there will be an increased portion of subsea developments in water depths beyond 1,500m.
