GE Oil and Gas Blowout Preventer Shop
Broussard, Louisiana

Client: Hydril Pressure Control, a GE Oil & Gas Business
Project Size: 24,180 SF

Contracted by Hydrill USA, a GE Oil & Gas company, this design-build project involves both new construction and renovation, repurposing and addition to existing facilities. Located off Highway 90 in St. Martin Parish, scope includes renovation of 12,524 square feet of existing office areas. A 19,591 square foot repurpose project is also converting existing metal building space for new Disassembly and Inspection.

An addition of approximately 1,000 square feet of new first floor office space to the existing building will allow for the Client's ever-expanding needs. Additionally, an 81,968 square foot new metal building for Welding, Machining, Assembly & Test and Warehouse space is being constructed adjacent to the existing facility.

This renewed and largely repurposed facility will now facilitate maintenance and new manufacturing of both standard and Deepwater offshore drilling blowout preventers (BOP) to higher standards which were mandated and implemented as the direct result of the Deepwater Horizon Event. As such, this facility will play an important role in securing the overall safety and reliability of the Drilling Industry.
