OCTOBER 11, 2014 — New Orleans headquartered Harvey Gulf International Marine, LLC has established Harvey Gulf International Marine de Mexico S.A.P.I. de C.V.
"We recognize the growth potential in the Mexican market for our business," says Harvey Gulf CEO Shane Guidry."The establishment of Harvey Gulf International Marine de Mexico will allow us to fully deliver our services direct to our clients in Mexico. Harvey Gulf's professionalism, new generation of assets, superior performance and safer operations will provide our customers value and address their significant needs in Mexico. This is what Harvey Gulf has built its reputation on. We will grow our business by continuing our high standard of operational excellence through incident free operations and with the deployment of assets which will strategically position Harvey Gulf to support Mexican operations. The initial area of operation will primarily be in Ciudad del Carmen, Mexico; however we will be able to operate in any other port facility locations along the Mexican coast to support operations.
"With a presence in Mexico, Harvey Gulf is now able to fully service the needs of its clients currently operating in the offshore oil and gas segment of Mexico, and position itself to fully service the needs of future clients that will enter the market. Recently approved changes in Mexican law allow foreign ownership in hydrocarbons which facilitates this growth."
Harvey Gulf says that establishment of the Mexican company "shows our commitment and continued journey to become the dominant player in our field which specializes in providing offshore supply and multi–purpose support vessels for deepwater operations worldwide."
