HOUSTON,  Feb. 7, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Oceaneering International, Inc.

Company Limited (BP), a subsidiary of BP plc (NYSE:BP), to supply umbilicals for
BP's Quad 204 field development west of Shetland, United Kingdom.  This order
adds over $45 million to Oceaneering's Subsea Products backlog.

The order is for two riser and five infield umbilicals totaling approximately 19

is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2013 and the third phase is
anticipated to be completed in the second quarter of 2015.   

This order is the first issued by BP under a ten-year term Global Subsea
Hardware Umbilical Agreement executed between BP and Oceaneering during the
third quarter of 2012.  Under the agreement, Oceaneering has committed to supply
umbilicals and ancillary equipment and services to BP at mutually agreeable
order specifications and terms.
