GATE’s Newest Business Unit Focuses on Doing More with Less

GATE, Inc in Houston, TX - Gibson Applied Technology and Engineering (dba GATE), a GATE Energy Company, is pleased to announce the launch of their Project Management and Engineering (PM&E) business unit.

The consolidated business unit is focused on executing turnkey project scopes including flowline blockage remediation, infield subsea field development, Inspection Maintenance and Repair (IMR) campaigns, decommissioning and abandonment, well stimulation and subsea tiebacks (using flexibles) in an environment that demands doing more with less.

Employing a unique business model and an innovative approach to project delivery that takes advantage of the current depressed market for vessels and equipment, and the capabilities of recent acquisitions within the GATE Energy group of companies, the PM&E business unit is structured to deliver projects more cost effectively than their competitors.

Chuck Centore, the new Vice President of Project Management and Engineering, said, “The introduction of the PM&E business unit is a response to our Clients growing demands to deliver CAPEX and OPEX projects that focus on capital efficiency and the ability to extract more value per dollar spent. Reducing the cost of project delivery, without sacrificing quality or increasing HSSE risk exposure, has become a strategic imperative for our industry to not only survive this market downturn, but to thrive while in it. ”

Karthik Annadorai, Executive Vice President, said, “GATE has a long-standing history of providing engineering services to offshore operators in all of the world’s key deepwater basins. Today’s market has provided an opportunity to expand these services to enable the delivery of turnkey solutions to our Clients.”

GATE Energy is a family of companies providing project management and engineering, commissioning, field services, and staffing to the energy industry. With a novel ‘systems-approach’ to providing solutions to their Clients, GATE’s ‘Make It Work Right The First Time’ philosophy has created strong partnerships with their Clients and has recently led to GATE being identified as the Zweig Group #1 Hot Firm in North America for the second year in succession.
