REGENCY PARK, SOUTH AUSTRALIA, Dec. 29, 2014 - Halliburton officially opened a new base at Regency
Park, South Australia, to service its customers in the state's growing energy sector.
"Halliburton's investment in our new facility enables us to provide a wide range of services and
support to our operations in Australia and specifically serve our customers working in the Cooper
Basin," said Michael Segura, Vice President of Halliburton Australasia. "We see the great
potential of the region."
The Honourable Jay Weatherill, Premier of South Australia, and the Honourable Tom Koutsantonis, State
Treasurer and Mineral Resources and Energy Minister, officiated at a celebration to open the new facility.
Speaking to Halliburton staff and guests, the Premier emphasised the importance of the gas industry to the
growth of South Australia's economy.
"Halliburton has been active in South Australia for 50 years, and its operations here have more than
doubled in the last three years, growing from an employment base of 178 in October 2011 to 378 in October
this year," said Weatherill. "This new facility is an important milestone for one of the
world's largest and most-established providers of products and services to the energy industry."
"Various sources estimate there is between 100 trillion and 300 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas
in South Australia. That is centuries of gas which could be unleashed as technological advances drive down
costs," Koutsantonis said.
Halliburton's new facility at Regency Park will provide management, engineering and operations support
for multiple Halliburton departments across Australasia.
The site will provide comprehensive maintenance support for South Australian-based equipment, as a fully
equipped mechanical workshop is installed at the site.
The new facility also has warehousing to supply products, materials and parts to Halliburton's
operations. Other functions at the site include logistics for the Cooper Basin and interstate sites,
multiple procurement functions, a training facility and quality assurance functions.
