Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI) has established a specialized Oil & Gas Division within Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America Inc. (MHIA). Located in Houston, Texas, USA, MHI’s Oil & Gas Division will focus on identifying, developing, and leading business opportunities for turbomachinery and engineered solutions including growth areas such as floating production, LNG, plant modularization, CO2 enhanced oil recovery, gas processing, and petrochemicals. According to MHI, the goal is to provide combined functions for various products handled by MHIA, such as compressors and gas turbines, providing one-stop solutions to the upstream, LNG, and downstream markets.
“Many of MHI’s leading technologies trace their origins back to the US,” 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 US from a local base.”
Hiroaki Osaki, president of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation, serves as president of the newly-established division. “I am convinced that the oil, gas and petrochemical industry in the US will continue its robust development,” said Osaki. “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.
