Mr. Smith said the office will handle sales of Clean Sweep oilspill cleanup devices, corrosion protection system sales for the Gulf of Mexico, and a new engineering support service for U.S.

customers of the safety/reliability/ technical audit engineering service that has been well received on U.K. and Southeast Asia projects.
