Bechtel and Gulf Island Fabrication to collaborate

Bechtel and Gulf Island Fabrication, Inc. will collaborate in the offshore market in the Gulf of Mexico and around the world. The combination of Bechtel’s engineering, procurement, and direct-hire construction capabilities and Gulf Island’s fabrication experience, available infrastructure, and skilled craft workforce provides customers a comprehensive resource to build offshore facilities or expand existing ones. “With increased demand for energy around the world, oil companies continue to expand and develop more complex offshore projects and will need reliable contractors to deliver them,” said Joe Gebara, general manager of Bechtel’s Offshore business. “The agreement between Bechtel and Gulf Island Fabrication creates a world-class team to meet that need,” he said. “Gulf Island’s record of fabricating some of the most challenging offshore structures makes the company a strong partner for Bechtel, and we look forward to working together to successfully deliver for our customers.” The Bechtel-Gulf Island team will serve the Gulf of Mexico and other markets from their offices in Houston. Gulf Island is a leading fabricator of drilling and production platforms, hull and deck sections of floating production platforms, and specialized structures. ”Gulf Island is excited about the cooperation with Bechtel, which combines our fabrication expertise and specialized capabilities with one of the most respected engineering, procurement, and construction companies in the world,” said Kirk Meche, President and CEO of Gulf Island. “Together we offer a new approach to deliver offshore projects which incorporates innovative solutions and flexibility to meet and exceed client expectations and requirements.”
