Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. has established a specialized Oil & Gas Division within Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America Inc.
Now, the Houston-based U.S. subsidiary can provide one-stop shop solutions to upstream and downstream liquefied natural gas markets.
“Many of MHI’s leading technologies trace their origins back to the U.S.” said MHI President and CEO Shunichi Miyanaga “We are pleased to be able to offer the technologies we have honed in Japan to customers in the U.S. from a local base.”
Hiroaki Osaki, president of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation, now serves as president of the newly-established division.
“I am convinced that the oil, gas and petrochemical industry in the U.S. will continue its robust development in the long run,” Osaki stated. “It is my responsibility to create synergies across MHI’s product lines and utilize our vast R&D network to seek out new technologies, innovations, and services that will drive value for customers and broaden the MHI Oil & Gas portfolio.”
The new division, which has an office in downtown Houston, will identify and develop turbomachinery and engineered solutions including floating production, LNG, plant modularization, CO2 –EOR, gas processing and petrochemicals.
MHI now has 7,300 employees in over 100 offices and factories in 30 U.S. states. The head office and factory of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor International Corporation and a service base of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Ltd. are also located in Houston.
