The office puts SGS in a prime position to address the need for rapid-response, underwater maintenance, inspection and repair services, for oil & gas as well as shipping clients in the Houston/Galveston area.
Subsea Global Solutions (SGS), the premier underwater repair, maintenance and marine solutions provider for the global marine industry, today announced that the company has opened a new office in Texas to address growing demand for SGS services in the U.S. Gulf Coast oil, gas and commercial shipping industries.
The office, in Webster, Texas, near Houston, puts SGS in a prime position to support its expanding rapid-response maintenance, inspection and repair program to meet the needs of clients on the Gulf Coast, and in the Houston and Galveston areas. SGS will have highly trained personnel and specialized equipment to deliver cost-effective maintenance and repair solutions with state-of-the-art technology and processes.
"2016 will be a pivotal growth year for SGS as we continue to expand our services in the oil and gas industry, as well as the commercial shipping industry, in the U.S. and globally. In addition to our new office in Webster, Texas, we also expect to add more locations in North America in 2016, as well as additional international locations," said Paul Peters, Chief Executive Officer at SGS.
SGS companies have been servicing the marine community for over 60 years. The company offers the industry's most sophisticated processes and repair techniques, many of which are unique to SGS.
SGS continues to expand its service portfolio in port areas throughout the world. For instance, SGS's innovation in underwater wet welding has allowed it to capture strategic projects with oil majors globally. The company has recently achieved further class recognition of its underwater wet welding program by achieving "A" class metallurgical results on test plates groove welded on metals with considerably high carbon content. Achieving "A" class metallurgical results on steel of this type has never been achieved before and is a further validation of SGS's sophistication on the delivery of unique services.
SGS has a history of service excellence and innovation. For example, SGS was the first company to develop a procedure for, and execute, the underwater removal of a complete stabilizer fin unit of a cruise ship following her normal schedule. SGS also received the international recognition for their development of flexible hyperbaric cofferdams for the underwater exchange of propeller shaft seals. SGS has also initiated new development projects in underwater equipment development for hull and paint maintenance that has been recognized by port authorities globally.
