Milestones and Achievements

Aquaterra Energy has come a long way since its inception. With a series of ground-breaking projects and technological advancements, the company has set new industry standards. Their Sea Swift platform, for instance, has revolutionised offshore installations, making them more efficient and cost-effective, with the team pioneering a fully renewably powered platform, for a Denovo in Trinidad and Tobago.

More recently, Aquaterra has secured a multi-million-pound contract for the decommissioning of eight offshore wells in Abu Dhabi. The contract is in partnership with TPMC and aims to complete the project by 2028. Aquaterra will provide offshore riser equipment and services as part of an end-to-end managed service. The project is expected to create local employment opportunities and contribute to carbon savings by minimising transportation and travel costs.

Environmental Initiatives to support industry decarbonisation


Sustainability is more than just a buzzword for Aquaterra Energy; it's a core value. The company is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and has invested heavily in expanding their renewables portfolio.

Aquaterra Energy is making significant strides in its commitment to environmental initiatives and industry decarbonisation. As the global energy landscape undergoes a seismic shift towards cleaner and more sustainable sources, Aquaterra Energy is positioning itself as a responsible industry leader, keen on reducing its carbon footprint and supporting clients to reduce their operating emissions via in-house carbon calculators for all projects.

One of the most notable aspects of Aquaterra Energy’s sustainability efforts is its focus on minimising transportation and travel costs to reduce carbon emissions. The company collaborates closely with local partners to manufacture and transport project equipment, thereby not only boosting local employment but also cutting down on the environmental impact of long-haul shipping and travel. This localised approach to business operations is a win-win, offering economic benefits while also contributing to carbon savings.

In addition to operational efficiencies, Aquaterra Energy is also investing in technology and engineering solutions that are inherently more sustainable. For instance, their offshore riser systems and equipment are designed to be highly efficient, reducing the need for frequent replacements and thereby decreasing waste and minimising rig time.

Moreover, Aquaterra Energy has identified the Middle East as a key geography to support its global growth plan, and it is here that the company is building on its regional footprint to deliver intelligent engineering solutions that are both economically viable and environmentally responsible. By sharing knowledge and upskilling local personnel, Aquaterra Energy is not just contributing to local economies but is also fostering a culture of sustainability.

James Larnder, Managing Director at Aquaterra Energy, has expressed the company's delight in expanding its decommissioning and riser expertise in the Middle East, a region that has seen significant growth for the company. Aquaterra aims to continue this momentum, focusing on both increasing its presence and revenue in the region and globally, while also spearheading environmental initiatives.
