The exploitation of offshore oil and gas fields has become a global industry in which success depends on technological innovation and the quality of project management. These areas have been at the heart of the Heerema Group ever since we were established. Our activities are as diverse and dynamic as our industry.

We design, construct, transport and install equipment for the exploitation of oil and gas at sea. We serve the world’s leading energy firms from the North Sea to West Africa, from the Gulf of Mexico to Brazil and from South East Asia to Australia. We have grown worldwide on the back of technical innovations and professional execution of projects.

We continue to increase the quality of our equipment, which means projects at sea are finalized faster, within budget and in compliance with HSE guidelines. We are proud of our engineering feats. We hold world records for size and weight of integrated platforms, as well as the installation of facilities at depths exceeding 2,500 meters.

The Group comprises Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) and Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG). Individually, these companies work at the forefront of their industries, helping their clients to safely operate at greater depths and in tougher environments. Together, they exchange expertise and talent, and co-operate on complex projects.

We operate around the world and employ more than 2,000 people. We deliberately choose to operate in niches in which we successfully strive to be the best. Read more about our the history in the Company History section.
