Tarpon Systems International LLC Announces Acquisition of Tarpon System From Acergy Group

HOUSTON, May 6, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) — Tarpon Systems International LLC today announced the acquisition of Tarpon System from the Acergy Group, including all patents, rights, and licenses, for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition, effective May 1, 2008, will broaden Tarpon’s asset base and allow for a wider range of solutions to include design and engineering, fabrication, installation management, and contracting.

In conjunction with JAB Energy Solutions, LLC, based out of Houston, Texas, and Allison Marine Contractors Inc., the acquisition will also allow for handling of larger scopes in a customer-focused environment.

”We are excited about the acquisition and believe this design was underutilized in the past due to previous marketing and promotional limitations,” said Steve Orlando, Owner of Tarpon Systems International LLC. “We believe the patented design of the Tarpon system is the most efficient, reliable, marginal field development structure available on the market today.”

Tarpon Systems’ marginal field development structure has proven to be commercially attractive due to its low capital investment, early production availability, residual value of reusable components, and single focal point coordination. Currently, there are over fifty installations worldwide with plans to expand an offshore presence through enhanced marketing strategies.
