Peterson Maritime Services Open Office In Houston

Harold Pecunia, president of Peterson Maritime Services, Incorporated, has announced that the New Orleans, La.-based corporation has opened an office in Houston, Texas, to provide marine services comparable to their operations in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, La., and Mobile, Ala.

The company is engaged primarily in ship cleaning, oil and chemical spill pickup and air services for the purpose of assisting crews in picking up spills, transporting representatives between ship-and-shore and to transport crews to the site of a critical spill as rapidly as possible.

The Houston office will open initially as a sales office for products such as 3-M sorbents, Oil Snare, Sorbent C, Uniroyal Oil Containment Booms, Slurp Oil Skimmers and American Marine Oil Containment Booms. Services, equal to those in New Orleans, but servicing the Texas Gulf area, will be established shortly.

Peterson Maritime Services has been in the ship cleaning business for over 20 years, and its people are well acquainted with the requirements of the marine industry.

The auxiliary services which they now offer have been developed as the result of a need by industry for rapid and efficient cleanup of both the vessel and its environment.

Peterson's Houston office is located at 4400 South Wayside Drive, Suite 102, Houston, Texas.
