About Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc.
Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc. operates as an offshore energy company. It provides reservoir development solutions and other contracting services to the energy market, as well as to its own oil and gas properties. The company's primary operations are located in the Gulf of Mexico, North Sea, the Asia Pacific, and West Africa regions.
The company conducts its operations through two segments: Contracting Services; and Oil and Gas and Production Facilities.
CONTRACTING SERVICES OPERATIONS
This segment provides a range of contracting services primarily in the Gulf of Mexico, North Sea, the Asia Pacific, and West Africa regions primarily in deepwater.
Development: Development services include: installation of subsea pipelines, flowlines, control umbilicals, manifold assemblies, risers; pipelay and burial; installation and tie-in of riser and manifold assembly; commissioning, testing and inspection; and cable and umbilical lay and connection.
Production: Production services include: inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) of production structures, risers, pipelines and subsea equipment; well intervention; life of field support; and intervention engineering.
Decommissioning: Decommissioning services include: decommissioning and remediation services; plugging and abandonment services; platform salvage and removal services; pipeline abandonment services; and site inspections.
The company provides offshore services and methodologies that the company believes are critical to finding and developing offshore reservoirs and maximizing production economics. These life of field services are represented by three disciplines: construction, well operations, and production facilities.
Construction services include the use of umbilical lay and pipelay vessels and ROVs. The company owns three subsea umbilical lay and pipelay vessels. The Intrepid is a 381-foot DP-2 vessel capable of laying rigid and flexible pipe (up to 8 inches in diameter) and umbilicals. The Express is a 502-foot DP-2 vessel also capable of laying rigid and flexible pipe (up to 14 inches in diameter) and umbilicals. The Caesar is 485 feet long and has a state-of-the-art DP-2 system. In January 2010, the Caesar arrived in the Gulf of Mexico after its conversion into a subsea pipelay asset capable of laying rigid pipe up to 36 inches in diameter.
The company also periodically provides construction services from its well intervention vessels, Seawell, Q4000 and the newly completed Well Enhancer, which was placed in service in October 2009.
The company operates ROVs, trenchers and ROVDrills designed for offshore construction. The companys vessels add value by supporting deployment of its ROVs. The company provides its customers with vessel availability and schedule flexibility in the Gulf of Mexico and internationally. The companys 39 ROVs and five trencher systems operate in three regions: the Americas, Europe/West Africa, and the Asia Pacific.
The company engineers, manages, and conducts well construction, intervention, drilling, and decommissioning operations in water depths ranging from 200 to 10,000 feet. Three of the company's vessels serve as work platforms for well operations services at costs significantly less than drilling rigs. In the Gulf of Mexico, its multi-service semi-submersible vessel, the Q4000, has set a series of well operations firsts in increasingly deeper water without the use of a traditional drilling rig. In the North Sea, the Seawell has provided intervention and abandonment services for approximately 700 North Sea subsea wells.
In February 2010, the company announced the formation of a joint venture with Australian-based engineering and construction company Clough Limited, to provide a range of subsea services to offshore operators in the Asia Pacific region. Services provided by the joint venture, named Clough Helix Pty Ltd, include subsea well intervention and well abandonment, SURF (subsea infrastructure, umbilical, riser and flowline installation), saturation and air diving and subsea inspection, repair, and maintenance services.
The company owns interests in certain production facilities in hub locations where there is potential for significant subsea tieback activity. The company owns a 50% interest in Deepwater Gateway, which owns the Marco Polo TLP, located in 4,300 feet of water in the Gulf of Mexico. The company also owns a 20% interest in Independence Hub, which owns the Independence Hub platform, a 105-foot deep draft, semi-submersible platform located in a water depth of 8,000 feet that serves as a regional hub for up to one billion cubic feet of natural gas production per day from multiple ultra-deepwater fields in the previously untapped eastern Gulf of Mexico.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
