DMTI to Offer More Technical Support with New Integrity Management Division
Delta Marine Technologies (DMTI) has entered a new marketplace adding more technical support to the Oil & Gas Industry with its newly formed Integrity Management Division.
DMTI acquired the services of Mr. Les Colter to head-up its newly formed Integrity Management Division located in its corporate offices in Montgomery, TX.
Mr. Colter has more than thirty-five (35) years of hands-on experience examining and solving structure problems. Mr. Colter holds both a B.S. and a M.S. in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Texas at El Paso. He also has been a member of the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) for more than twenty-five (25) years. Combining extensive field experience, strong practical or common sense, and a good academic background gave credence to his assignment as Director of Integrity Management in April, 2011.
In the coming months, DMTI will be completing the necessary equipment purchases and hiring staff, which will be trained and certified to meet current challenges being thrust upon facilities and pipeline operators in the United States. And, if the trend follows previous patterns, DMTI will be solving the same issues worldwide. The move from a "reactive" operator to a "proactive" operator is necessary to meet the proper risk management philosophy in which systems are required to have addressed all possible threats to the structure’s integrity, whether they be above grade facilities, buried or subsea pipelines.
