Bureau Veritas Strengthens US O&G Position by Acquiring DTI

Bureau Veritas has acquired DTI DiversiTech, Inc., a US company specialized in inspection and audit services for the oil and gas sector.

Founded in 1989 and based in Texas, DTI is the US leader in inspection of offshore subsea and completion equipment used in drilling operations, a market estimated at USD 150 million. The company employs more than 85 people and generated revenue of approximately EUR 15 million (USD 20.3 million) in the year ended August 31, 2013.

DTI will allow Bureau Veritas to strengthen its presence in the oil and gas market in the United States, particularly in the Gulf of Mexico. This region offers significant growth prospects that are driving investment in new drilling and production infrastructure.

Didier Michaud-Daniel, Bureau Veritas’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “The oil and gas industry is increasingly using our services amidst growing technological challenges in offshore exploration and production, in a more stringent regulatory environment. The integration of DTI strengthens our expertise and reinforces the Group’s technical capabilities and position in the United States.”

Gerald Falls, DTI’s President and Chief Executive Officer, added: “We are delighted to become a part of Bureau Veritas. Our complementary activities will enable us to offer additional services to our clients and to accelerate DTI’s expansion.”

Bureau Veritas’ workforce in North America now reaches more than 6,000.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
