GATE Energy, a global leader in providing engineering, commissioning, and specialty field services to the energy sector, announced this Thursday it has expanded into the Latin-American market and opened an office in Mexico City.
Firstly, the office will call itself GATE Mexico S.de R.L. de CV. The office will allow GATE Energy to provide clients with a seamless commissioning experience for US; Mexico, and Latin American projects.
Moreover, the new office will also allow their subsidiary, Viking Engineering, to offer integrated engineering services to Mexico; and the Latin American region. According to Grant Gibson, CEO of GATE Energy, the purpose of the new offices in Mexico is to replicate and continue the company has achieved in the US Gulf of Mexico Region.
In addition, GATE’s offices in Singapore and South Korea continue to serve as key locations for the commissioning; and construction of floating production platforms; engineering, consulting, and field services that offer rig inspections and marine risk management delivery.
Consequently, the new offices in Mexico intend to duplicate the strategy of success the company has experienced in other markets. Gibson said about the matter. “The strategy of duplicating the success and experience in delivering deepwater commissioning projects with operators in the US Gulf of Mexico positions GATE as the ‘Partner of Choice’ to clients with similar future projects in Mexico waters.”

He also remarked. “The Mexican energy sector, including the national oil company, Pemex, and other private oil companies, will also bring excellent opportunities for GATE’s engineering subsidiary, Viking Engineering.”
In fact, the creation of a Mexican unit of the company provides a path towards Viking’s local registration; as a well engineering services provider qualified to national CNH and ASEA requirements, making Viking a preferred provider of downhole engineering and process consulting services for both the onshore and the growing offshore market.
About the matter, Jorge L. Garduño, President of Viking Engineering, said. “Viking already has an established presence in Mexico, providing engineering and quality assurance services to both shelf and deepwater developments.”
Finally, he also remarked. “However, we believe this is the right time to develop a closer working relationship with our customers in the country. This office will also serve as a springboard to provide our integrated service offerings to the rest of the Latin American region.”
