i-Tech said on Monday that, in order to meet client demand for its range of life-of-field services, the Gulf of Mexico team grew by more than 25%.

Recent contracts included vessel charter renewals and the provision of custom engineering solutions for subsea flow assurance and inspection, repair, and maintenance (IRM) workscopes.

Edward Galloway, regional director for the Gulf of Mexico at i-Tech Services, said: “Despite the challenging market conditions, we enjoyed a really successful year in 2018 and expect to build on this success based on our growing capabilities and strong track record in the region.

“Key to winning these awards was i-Tech Services’ ability to provide clients with a complete turnkey solution that protects the integrity and optimizes the performance of subsea infrastructure throughout the life of a field.

“To position ourselves for the future and help manage the increasing demand for our services, we have invested in growing the team and the development of new technology solutions to ensure we remain the go-to provider for all our clients’ life of field challenges.”
