Advanced Building Services (ABS), OI’s sister Company, has been awarded a new five-year contract to provide custom, skid-mounted crew accommodations and field work quarters for three rigs in the Eagle Ford shale region.
The contract includes ABS’s fabrication, transport, rig-up and rig-down services of its custom designed buildings, which are appointed with quality furnishings and appliances. The buildings feature a heavy-duty, 10-gauge steel frame for safety, custom insulation and 3-ton air conditioning units to comfortably accommodate crew members during the scorching summer heat.
“The Eagle Ford shale play is a resource-rich field that is attracting great interest from world-class operators like our client,” said Thomas “Bo” Godfrey, president of Advanced Building Services. “This contract underscores the confidence they place in us to quickly manufacture custom buildings, and provide turnkey logistics, power-ups and 24/7 servicing. Our customers appreciate our ability to handle all the details of logistics and maintenance so they can focus on their own core competencies.”
Advanced Building Services, which manufactures buildings at its Vidalia, Louisiana fabrication plant, will supply Company Rep, Living Quarter and Safety Buildings, as well as delivery of the buildings on its dedicated 18-wheel trucks, and complete set-up and maintenance by certified technicians.
“We do our work so they can do theirs,” Godfrey said. “We take great pride in knowing that the hundreds of new workers coming to this area can be focused on their jobs because we are focused on their safety and comfort.”
ABS continues to expand its footprint across the U.S. in order to consistently improve levels of service. The newest location will open mid-January in Tilden, Texas, offering support for the fulfillment of this new contract as well as servicing other clients. The Tilden service center will be the company’s second location in the Eagle Ford region, with the first being in Victoria.
