Halliburton to build integrated completion center in Louisiana
NEW IBERIA, Lousiana – Halliburton has announced plans for a new Integrated Completion Center located in New Iberia. This new facility will expand the company’s resources and capabilities for deepwater completion tools for its Gulf of Mexico area customers.
The facility, which will house more than 250 employees, will be located on 103 acres on Admiral Doyle Drive. It will include a 219,000-sq-ft climatecontrolled maintenance facility, a 30,000-sq-ft administration building, an operations command center and several learning auditoriums for training.
Halliburton is investing about $45 million in land and building costs. The company broke ground on the facility in spring of 2013, and it is scheduled for occupancy in the fourth quarter of 2014. The company will be consolidating some of its Gulf of Mexico operations from Houma and five locations in New Iberia, Broussard and Lafayette at the new center.
“As deepwater operations grow, our new completion facility will provide increased capability and focus to meet evolving market requirements,” said Charles Kendrick, vice president of Halliburton’s Gulf of Mexico Area.
