    August 18, 2009 – Houston, Texas – Oceaneering International, Inc. (NYSE:OII) announced that it secured in June a contract from Esso Exploration Angola (Block 15) Limited, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, to supply umbilicals for the Kizomba Satellites development located in Block 15 offshore Angola, West Africa.
