Xodus acquires Houston-based Ocean Geo Solutions

5 October 2021

Energy consultancy Xodus has continued its global expansion with the acquisition of Houston-based data interpretation consultancy Ocean Geo Solutions (OGS), adding capabilities in geophysical data processing, interpretation and reporting.

OGS assesses seabed and subsurface conditions for hazards ahead of deep-water drilling operations and the installation of pipelines, cables and structures, providing its specialist services to oil and gas operators and offshore wind developers. OGS is well established in the region; 80% of its work is sourced from Houston-based clients, with approximately half of the total projects being international.
