Swire Oilfield Services Expands in North America

(Press Release)
Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Swire Oilfield Services (Swire), has reinforced its commitment to growth with a significant investment in its North American operations, as part of the company’s global  $150 million investment this year.

 

The company entered the Gulf of Mexico in 2007 with the establishment of an operations headquarters in Houma, Louisiana. Since then it has expanded with nine new facilities across the Gulf coast and North America, including Port Fourchon, Morgan City and Lafayette in Louisiana; Galveston, Three Rivers, Carrizo Springs and Midland/Odessa in Texas; Kenai, Alaska; Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago and a new corporate office in The Woodlands, Texas.

Swire, which has a global fleet of 60,000 units, has now significantly increased its local fleet across North America with more than 5,000 units to support its existing offshore business. In addition to its full range of equipment, Swire will also continue with its investment in sustainability and the environment through its total water management services, which is associated with the hydraulic fracturing market in the non-conventional shale plays across North America.

Swire’s North American operations also continue to support the growing demand for improving standards in the Gulf of Mexico. Swire operates the largest rental fleet of DNV 2.7-1 certified containers and baskets in the world. This standard is recognized at a global level as having the highest regard to safety, quality and traceability.

Steve Hardwick, president of North America, said: “The underlying principals of exceptional performance in HSEQ, and delivering the highest levels of customer service continue to be the foundation on which our growth is built. There is currently a high demand for safe, reliable, high quality, and internationally approved offshore cargo carrying units around the world.

“Our Gulf of Mexico fleet exceeds any lifting policies, guidelines or recommendations set forth by operators, governing bodies or affiliated organizations. As the largest global provider of these units and associated services, Swire has the resources and commitment to invest in growth and to assist both the onshore and offshore industry in achieving its safety, quality and productivity targets while conserving our environment. We are proud to accommodate the needs of both operators and service providers in the Gulf of Mexico.”
