IRM Systems Opens New Base in Houston

IRM Systems, the independent authority on emergency pipeline repairs, announced that it has opened a new base of operations in Houston, Texas.

Improving efficiencies in hydrocarbon recovery has meant the production cost per barrel using older, existing assets has dropped significantly. 

“The implications of this development are tremendous, bringing with them the need for a new perspective on pipeline inspection, repair and maintenance, which is where IRM Systems comes in,” said Rutger Schouten, General Manager of IRM Systems.

“By having a permanent presence in Houston, we are in a much stronger position to provide customers with cost-effective, hands-on IRM engineering solutions; ones that will help to ensure that once accessed, these resources can be delivered efficiently at the lowest cost,” he added.

Assessing Integrity, Mitigating Risks

Given the reduced cost and efficiencies offered by IRM Systems, it is experiencing increased demand for its integrity assessment, mitigation, inspection, repair and maintenance services. Already, the company is working on behalf of operators in South America and the Caribbean. It will support customers throughout The Americas, as far north as the Arctic. One of the primary aims of its Houston enterprise is to further develop its risk management services, particularly its integrity assessment and mitigation capabilities for pipelines, steel catenary risers, and fixed risers.

The new Houston base supports the expansion of IRM Systems’ project management engineering services, further complementing those supplied by the company from its headquarters in The Netherlands.  

“I look forward to offering the innovative, hands-on approach of IRM Systems to the Houston market,” said Danny Ling, recently appointed General Manager – The Americas for IRM Systems. 

“The company’s track record showcases its ability to adapt and develop workable solutions quickly, using a systematic approach. As a result, production downtime is significantly reduced and environmental impact minimized,” he added.

The new IRM Systems office is located in northwest Houston just off the Highway 8.

Experienced Engineers Wanted

IRM Systems is confident that having a presence in Houston will dramatically improve customer support to those in the region. To achieve this, the company will be recruiting staff, particularly those with hands-on engineering experience.
