Singapore: Halliburton opened its newly constructed Completion Technology and Manufacturing Center in Singapore yesterday, significantly expanding the company’s completion tools technology and manufacturing capacity. Completion Tools, a product service line in Halliburton’s Completion and Production division, enables customers to complete their wells by providing the design, selection and provision of equipment and services to optimize well production.
“Halliburton is the leading supplier of completion products and services globally, and the Singapore facility is a flagship for our Completion Tools manufacturing in the Eastern Hemisphere,” said Dave Lesar, Halliburton chairman, president and ceo. “Investment in this technology and manufacturing facility is a demonstration of Halliburton’s commitment to strengthen our position in international markets where we are seeing expanding opportunities in deep water, mature assets and unconventional resources development.”
The new state-of-the-art facility is located on about 43 acres in Jurong Industrial Park and includes more than 500,000 sq ft of manufacturing and administrative space. The facility includes technology laboratories and test facilities, which house complex processes such as high-alloy material precision machining, electrode discharge machines, small deep-hole gun drilling and fully automated high-pressure testing.
A second phase of development is underway which includes the construction of the technology administration building, workshops, deep-well simulators, high-pressure/high-temperature testing facilities and the completion of a deep horizontal well enabling all aspects of engineering testing and simulated systems integration testing.
The Completion Tools leadership team and global headquarters relocated from Houston, Texas, to Singapore in 2011.
“We welcome Halliburton’s investment in this new manufacturing and technology centre in Singapore, which will cover the entire value chain of activities from headquarters to manufacturing and technology,” said Singapore’s deputy prime minister Teo Chee Hean, who opened and toured the facility yesterday. “With this investment, Singaporeans can look forward to diverse roles and exciting career pathways, including managers, engineers, technicians and skilled production craftsmen.” [19/03/13]
