Our North and Latin America business is focused on a small number of core markets comprising; Brazil, Gulf of Mexico, Canada and United States plus an expanding presence in Mexico.
Our Brazil business has been built on a long-term relationship with the local NOC to which we have been supplying services on a continuous basis since 1992. This business has historically been comprised mainly of offshore well testing services, but has recently expanded to include offshore well intervention and wireless well contracts. Our work on wireless well technologies in Brazil, for deepwater advanced reservoir testing, provides an example of the potential customer benefits that some of our new technologies can deliver.
Our Gulf of Mexico business is predominantly deepwater and comprises a mixture of subsea landing string, well testing and intervention contracts with IOC and U.S. independent exploration and production companies. The North America land business is currently being driven by onshore unconventional activity, such as shale gas and tight oil, for which we provide a range of well clean-up, PowerChokes and well testing services.
We also conduct some offshore sales of early production facilities into Venezuela.
