Company Strategy


SBM Offshore believes the oceans will provide the world with safe, sustainable and affordable energy for generations to come. We share our experience to make it happen.

To be able to achieve this vision, the development of SBM Offshore’s strategy is based on the analysis of energy supply and demand, feedback from stakeholders, trends in the market, and the Company’s capabilities to perform in its markets.

SBM Offshore aims to grow and create long-term value for its stakeholders. The Company continues to focus on the offshore floating energy production market and adheres to a defined risk appetite framework as it pursues potential projects in its core businesses and prepares for the energy transition.


SBM Offshore’s strategy has been built on three strategic pillars:
