PetroHab, LLC is a Houston based company that domestically manufactures its entire range of Hot Work Safety Enclosures ("HWSE") products and provides unparalleled customer service when it comes to either selling or leasing any of those products. It is a world leader in providing innovative and cost-effective HWSE solutions and is proud of the fact that all of its products are manufactured in the U.S.A. PetroHab's products and services not only allow customers to carry out Hot Work safely and efficiently, but some of its HWSEs also serve to provide personnel who are conducting Hot Work with non-pressurized shelters that shield the operators from the elements, helping ensure that jobs are carried out safely and on time.
Previously, all habitat manufacturers had stuck to a "lease only" model, which, during these times of depressed oil prices, continues to prove too expensive for many end users. As such, PetroHab has switched its marketing efforts to a primarily "sale only" model where it sells the products to the end user and provides the requisite training and certification to that user on the assembly, disassembly, and maintenance of its entire product range, including its customized automatic shut down systems. Such traning and certification can take place either at PetroHab's headquarters in Houston or anywhere in the world, depending on the client's preference.
The fabric that PetroHab uses to makes the panels of PetroHab’s various product offerings is certified to exacting ANSI/FM 4950 standards. In fact, PetroHab is among the few manufacturers in the whole world, if not the only one, that insists on strictly using ANSI/FM 4950 certified materials, that boast a temperature resistance of 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, to make its products. Moreover, Petrohab is the only provider of its patented panel interlocking technology that does away with the customary cumbersome and trouble prone zippers and allows for far faster assembly and disassembly times of its habitats and for increased durability and strength of the attachment mechanism.
PetroHab has performed work for many companies both domestically and internationally, which include, but are not limited to:
MODEC and Saipem in Brazil
Chevron and Dynamic Industries in Angola
Conoco Phillips in Indonesia
Shell, Hermann Cross, Alcon, and ACM in Nigeria
BP, EMAS, Acute Technological Services (subsidiary of Oilstates), and Offshore Joint Services (subsidiary of RAE Energy) in Texas and the Gulf of Mexico
Los Alamos National Laboratories in New Mexico
Star Petroleum in Thailand
Quattro Group in Malaysia.

In all cases, all work was delivered timely and,to date, PetroHab’s safety record is completely unblemished.
Charles W Waldron, Contracts Manager, Dynamic Angola LLC
“In the second half of 2012, after touring the manufacturing and training facilities of PetroHab, LLC in Houston, Texas, Dynamic Industries, Inc. awarded PetroHab a competitively bid order to manufacture approximately 3,000 Petro-Habitat™ Hot-work Safety Enclosures panels and multiple Automatic Safety Shutdown Systems and a subcontract to supply certified welding habitat technicians for offshore rotational construction support work. In early 2013, Dynamic shipped PetroHab’s products to Angola for use on a large project Dynamic had contracted with Chevron to perform on certain offshore platforms in that country. Since the commencement of the offshore segment of the project, Dynamic has had PetroHab personnel working 24/7 on various platforms offshore Cabinda, assembling habitats wherever needed by the construction crews. To date, PetroHab personnel on the project have built, disassembled, and maintained hundreds of habitats, to Dynamic’s and Chevron’s satisfaction.”

“ACM of Nigeria is a 50 year old company that places safety as its number one priority. Among the most recent services provided by ACM to augment its aggressive growth strategies in the areas of offshore fabrication and deep offshore support services, are the sales and leasing of PetroHab Pressurized Welding Enclosures (PWE), also known as "Habitats", and ancillary Automatic Safety Shutdown Systems (SSS). Among ACM's high profile clients are Total, Shell, Agip (ENIgroup)and most recently, ACM provided both PetroHab PWE and SSS to Addax Petroleum in Nigeria to very high acclaim from Addax.”
Satya M. Santoso, Managing Director, Sarku Enjinering Utama
“PT Sarku Enjinering Utama was established in 1996 as a major maintenance, hook-up, commissioning and construction contractor for oil and gas offshore installations in Indonesia and around the globe. Our core business is offshore construction, maintenance, hook-up and commissioning of greenfield as well as brownfield platforms. Our clients range from multinational Oil & Gas companies acting as operators in Indonesia, such as ConocoPhillips Indonesia, Maxus (now CNOOC), Unocal/Chevron, Gulf, as well as major EPC contractor companies, such as Hyundai Heavy Industries and Technip.
We began our working relationship with PetroHab, LLC in 2012, with the aim of setting ourselves apart from the competition by enhancing the safety of our hot-work operations by providing unparalleled Pressurized Welding Enclosures (PWE) to be used when such operations are conducted in the vicinity of potential flammables. Most recently, we supplied PetroHab PWE to ConocoPhillips, which enabled us to safely conduct our hot-work operations in a potentially explosive atmosphere to ConocoPhillips’ extreme satisfaction.”
