A big thanks from Dolphin Geophysical for Trade Ocean’s excellent work. This was one of the smoothest project mobilisations we’ been involved with, and Trade Ocean’s assistance was a major part of this.

It is not very often International Diving Projects gets to work with as great a team as Trade Ocean. We have heard nothing but positive comments not only from our client, but from our own Oceaneering personnel. You have distinguished yourselves as the contractor of choice in Walvis Bay. Thanks again, and look forward to working with you.

On behalf of the whole BP team, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Trade Ocean, without who’s efforts, I doubt very much we would be in the current good shape. They have risen to every challenge willingly, and with a smile.
