Oilfield Instrumentation USA, along with its sister company, Advanced Building Services, Opens Service Facility in Bakersfield
BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA (May 5, 2011) – Oilfield Instrumentation USA (OI USA), which provides real-time drilling instrumentation and engineering laboratories to the oil and gas community, and sister company Advanced Building Services (ABS), announced the opening of its new Bakersfield service center to provide Baker Hughes the benefits of its complete engineering lab outsourcing services.
ABS and OI USA owner and CEO Allen Stuart commented on the opening:
“The opening of this facility in California signifies our confidence in the future of oil and gas production in that area, and commitment to respond to higher demands for fuels and increase supply for California consumers in an environmentally responsible manner,” Stuart said. “This facility expands the availability of Oilfield Instrumentation and ABS to exploration and production companies across the continental United States and has the effect of growing our business by geographic expansion.”
Oilfield Instrumentation and ABS are making a substantial investment in the outfitting of its new Bakersfield facility and the equipment that will be needed to service the drilling sites. The facility will service several rigs in the area and is facilitating Baker Hughes’ environmentally friendly drilling techniques that can locate on one acre and drill beneath ground in a 10-acre radius. The investments also will create 6-8 new jobs in an area that has some of the highest unemployment rates in the United States.
“We want the people of Bakersfield to know that Oilfield Instrumentation USA and Advanced Building Services are community-oriented employers,” Stuart said. “We have made outright purchases of real estate, equipment inventory and housing in the area in line with our commitment to be a best-in-class organization dedicated to high standards of operation. We create permanent jobs that benefit the communities we locate near and we stay committed.”
