Message from our MD

I hope that you and those close to you are keeping safe and well during this difficult time.  We are all facing these challenges together, both as a nation and as an industry.

The global pandemic of Covid-19, and another drop in oil price, means our sector is set to be tested.

Since Cortez Subsea was founded in 2011, we knew that working together would be the key to our successes. We are continuing to work with our partners and customers globally, while monitoring government guidance very closely and updating our policies so we can provide this support safely.
