Despite that construction had been under way since the spring, in mid-November Halliburton declined ABiz’s requests for comment on its 103-acre New Iberia facility (“Halliburton Builds Super Campus in Iberia Parish,” Nov. 19). This week, however, the company finally confirmed details about the project, which it calls an “Integrated Completion Center.” The price tag for the land and facility costs is $45 million, the company says.

The new Admiral Doyle Drive facility, which will house more than 250 employees, expands the company’s resources and capabilities for deepwater completion tools and will focus on service alignment, equipment maintenance, preparation and job execution for its Gulf of Mexico Area customers.
The project includes a 219,000-square-foot climate-controlled maintenance facility, a 30,000-square-foot administration building, an operations command center and several learning auditoriums for training.
Halliburton is scheduled to move in late this year, consolidating some of its Gulf of Mexico operations from Houma and five locations in New Iberia, Broussard and Lafayette at the new center. The company's new manufacturing facility on Pont des Mouton Road will not be affected by the consolidation. "The plans announced were specific to Halliburton’s Completion Tools business line and related services," company public relations rep Chevalier Mayes tells ABiz.
No other details about the consolidations were released.
“As deep water operations grow, our new completion facility will provide increased capability and focus to meet evolving market requirements,” Charles Kendrick, vice president of Halliburton’s Gulf of Mexico Area, said in a prepared statement. “Providing our employees with the support, facilities and tools to deliver in the market is essential to our success.”
