As three quarters of the worlds deepwater developments will take place in the "Golden Triangle" of West Africa, Gulf of Mexico and Brazil and with many West African projects controlled in Houston there has been an increasing demand for us to expand our presence in Houston to take advantage of the huge opportunity these regions hold for us over the next few years.

We recently signed a joint working partnership with C & C Technologies in Brazil to promote our technology to the Brazilian market and with Randy joining the team we are further strengthening our capability to support that relationship and build on the other regions in the Americas."
