SPE Gulf Coast Section would like to extend a hearty thank you to the following sponsors. With your financial support, our section is able to enhance technical knowledge among our members through local events, promote camaraderie and networking in our industry, educate and serve the community, and provide scholarships to students entering the oil and gas industry.

We would not be successful without your generous support we receive each year!

Gate Energy

GATE Energy is a family of companies that provide scalable, bespoke services for the energy sector including project management, engineering, commissioning, field services, operations and staffing services. Our expertise and knowledge is supported by subject matter experts, proprietary equipment and software across all of the GATE Energy service lines. We want your project to work right the first time. Small projects. Large projects. Complex projects. Every Project. Every Time.

Why worry about delivering projects right the first time?

Oil and gas fuels everyday life as we know it. The success of our projects impacts our society and we owe it to society to deliver energy efficiently. 

Oil and gas projects are large and complex. Interfaces are numerous and coordination may now be the most important factor for successful delivery. Yet, too often we are left with installations that are designed in isolation that then require much time, effort and money for us to figure out how to operate them.

Is this the definition of success? We don’t think so. 

As a uniquely positioned family of companies, we integrate our energy expertise with our Client's desired outcome for safe and effective project delivery. We understand that every project brings a new suite of challenges throughout its lifecycle. By considering the "big picture", we are able to provide fit-for-purpose solutions to specific projects or problems. We work hard to make projects work right because we want our Clients to succeed.

It’s time we work together to break down the silos, share lessons learned and see the big picture. Because together, we can make it work right the first time. www.gate.energy
