Conceptual Project Evaluation
Our clients have project needs, and obstacles to overcome. We offer the experience to evaluate those needs, and turn concept into reality.
Founded in 1948 by the Pregeant Family, GIS has evolved in the energy sector in the Gulf of Mexico as one of the most trusted and diversified construction service providers in the region.
Established in 1948 in Grand Isle, Louisiana, GIS began as a modest company serving the commercial fishing industry. It quickly evolved, entering into the emerging Oil & Gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico. Just as its founders, Clyde and Ouida Pregeant, responded to clients’ ever-changing needs, GIS has advanced and diversified to become one of the industry’s most capable and trusted energy partners.
GIS offers clients a single point of contact to utilize our 12 strategically located facilities, 2,000+ employees, and 21 service lines. Serving upstream, midstream, and downstream markets, we align our services with operations from the conceptual stage through construction, commissioning, and asset maintenance.
While our Corporate HSE group focuses on compliance, training, and incident response, the LIFE processes specifically cover Operational Safety, through comprehensive work planning, increasing awareness of work area & task risks, intervention techniques for redirecting at-risk behaviors, embedded field presence, quarterly initiatives focused on observed areas of risk, and visible leadership engagement.

At the heart of our foundation, GIS has provided support to the Gulf of Mexico oil & gas industry for nearly half a century. Providing services from the conceptual project stages, to fabrication & construction, maintenance & turnarounds, and eventual decommissioning, GIS offers the expertise for every stage of our clients' operational needs.
