Expansion

Larger Capacity, Increased Efficiency

SEC is committed to providing a breadth of top-quality services to all segments of the oil and gas industry.

 

To accommodate the growth in business, SEC Energy has significantly expanded operations by doubling its natural gas compression manufacturing capabilities and its workforce. In addition, SEC has broadened its range of products and services as well as its engineering and technical service units to accommodate its expanded network of satellite warehouse operations located in the most active natural gas producing basins throughout the United States. Warehouses are currently operating in California, Colorado, and Texas, with plans to open future field offices to serve the prolific Bakken, Marcellus and Permian production areas.

 

The expansion of the Houston headquarters tripled the facility's square footage, enabling SEC Energy to now provide up to 500,000 horsepower of compression per year in the new 46-acre complex. The new facility features five new buildings, which brings the total square footage of building space to 350,000, equivalent to more than six football fields, of which 212,000 square feet is new construction.

Specs:

  • 63,000-square-foot assembly shop with 12 bays suited to accommodate building larger equipment
  • 53,000-square-foot skid and vessel fabrication shop enabling construction of the full range of vessels from the small to the very large
  • 40,000-square-foot revamp shop featuring a DL6K Dynamometer to test engines prior to sending them into the field to help customers avoid costly delays and downtimes
  • Continued expansion of satellite warehouse operations providing express delivery of parts and materials from major manufacturers to remote oil and gas basins
