Oil States Industries, Inc.
In virtually any oil field on the planet, you’ll find Oil States Industries technology. A subsidiary of Oil States International, Inc., Oil States, with headquarters in Arlington, Texas, began as a maker of rubber components for general industry and with the rise of the oil and gas industry grew to become the global leader in deep-water technology—from floating production facilities and subsea pipelines to floating drilling rigs.

Oil States always has been about discovery—inventing solutions that are now industry mainstays, from simple on-shore systems to a revolutionary offshore flexible joint. Today, Oil States’ engineering is more sophisticated than ever, but the principles never change. Oil States is proud to be part of the Houston community and is proud of its role in the industry that put Houston on the world map.

Beyond Houston
Oil States’ Houston locations are part of a larger global network that generates our three groups: Elastomers, Offshore Construction and Marine Pipelines. These groups serve four primary markets:
  • Offshore: Oil States is known worldwide for innovative designs and for manufacturing flexible elements and advanced connectors for offshore facilities and subsea pipelines. Oil States designs, manufactures and provides services for offshore cranes and mooring systems and offers custom fabrication of complex pipeline equipment and subsea structures. It also provides exotic welding services and compact valves for a variety of applications.
  • Onshore: Oil States manufactures downhole products for drilling, well servicing and production with products that include elastomeric components, packer elements, pipeline spheres, clutches and brakes.
  • Defense: Oil States’ defense division is the world’s foremost manufacturer of submarine noise-reduction components, actively involved in the engineering of U.S. Naval submarines for more than 25 years.
  • General Industry: Oil States is a leading manufacturer of highly durable clutches and brakes for the mining, paper, logging and marine industries.

Oil States maintains manufacturing, service and sales locations in 12 countries and employ more than 2,600 professionals around the globe, 600 here in the greater Houston area.

Oil States in the City
Oil States operates from multiple locations across the greater Houston area and is an active participant in community and business life in this remarkable city.

Oil States’ machining, fabrication and administration facility is located on 25 acres near Hobby Airport. Oil States’ Houston Ship Channel location encompasses 22 acres with waterfront access for heavy-lift manufacturing with direct barge load out capabilities. At the Northwest Houston location, Oil States specializes in advanced welding technologies for deepwater applications.

Oil States and its employees are dedicated to enhancing and supporting the communities in which they work and live. From its participation in the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo every year to supporting riders in the BP MS150 each spring, the company commits resources and energy to a wide variety of social, educational and community related causes in Houston. From collecting toys and food for Houstonians in need to giving blood for the MD Anderson Blood Bank, Oil States employees and their families are as generous and dedicated as they come.

Innovation, ingenuity and excellence—Oil States has stood for those qualities for decades, providing technologies and services that enable its customers to safely and successfully enter new frontiers and new markets, and it will continue to do just that for years to come.
