ABS recognizes that our customer base in the offshore industry demands on-site support with best-in-class services,” says ABS Chairman Christopher J. Wiernicki. “ABS made the strategic decision to provide greater access to our offshore clients by locating ABS’ industry-focused resources in a dedicated facility in one of the world’s most important energy centers. This move reinforces our commitment to support Houston’s leading energy industry.

In addition to class services, ABS’ West Houston facility will offer education and training seminar rooms for local industry to use on demand. The objective is to provide a forum with access to in-house resources that fosters knowledge-based partnerships and information sharing among operators, service providers, academia and regulatory bodies.

The facility is scheduled to open in the first quarter 2014.
