FoundOcean, the largest dedicated offshore construction grouting company in the world, today announced the opening of its newest office in Houston, Texas to support its expansion overseas.

FoundOcean managing director Jim Bell said: "Houston is recognised as the energy capital of the world, with almost half of its economic activity driven by the energy industry, particularly oil and gas. It provides a perfect base for FoundOcean to continue with its growing activities in the Americas."

FoundOcean has completed more than 100 offshore projects in US and Canadian waters for world-class installation contractors including McDermott, CalDive, Heerema, Saipem, SubSea7, and Technip. These range from compliant tower foundation grouting to record-breaking deep water fabric formwork deployments for pipeline repair installations.

The DNV-accredited company has invested heavily in its grout mixing technology to ensure fast, efficient and safe offshore operations.

International business development manager Amir R Mirza will be based at the Houston site, supporting the organisation’s clients in the region and developing business opportunities in the North, Central and South American oil and gas markets.

FoundOcean is attending the Offshore Europe Conference and Exhibition. If you would like to talk to us in person about our expansion into Houston, then visit us on stand #5A24 where a FoundOcean team member will be available to answer any questions you may have.
