WRITTEN IN PARTNERSHIP WITH P3 GLOBAL
P3 Global Personnel is a new name in the oil and gas industry with a global influence dating back nearly 20 years. The Houma-based company started as Alford Services providing quality experts, knowledgeable personnel, various rental equipment and hot work safety solutions.
“We still have an excellent customer base, old and new, who are familiar with the variety of services we provide, so we like to say that we’re a new, old company,” says Jacob LeCompte, P3 president and CEO.
Under the original Alford Services name, P3 Global Personnel established its roots in 1998 as an inspection company. Throughout the years, Alford filled industry demands through expansion that added more services including HSE personnel, medical personnel and equipment, gas meter rentals, compliance, welding habitat services and safety training. Alford’s expansion continued until the company was sold to a training provider in 2008. In early 2015, Alford’s original management group was approached to purchase back the offshore division, including all personnel and equipment rental services. In May of the same year, P3 Global Personnel was established and rebranded to better define the company’s global expansion offering an impressive lineup of support services to companies in the oil and gas industry, both domestically and internationally. P3’s personnel are well prepared for any offshore or industrial projects.
P3 continues to provide a wide range of safety services such as Confined Space Rescue, Fall Protection support and a wide range of air monitoring solutions. The company’s HSE personnel have obtained the highest caliber of skills, training and qualifications. Additionally, P3 personnel are qualified to identify hazards and risk management processes, conduct workplace inspections, and effectively represent employees on safety, health and environmental issues, among other certifications.
Besides HSE personnel and medical support, P3 also offers Firewatch and HLO officers/logistics personnel. P3 recently partnered with Safehouse systems who is a global leader in the design and development of safe welding enclosures.
“With safety being our priority, the P3 Global Personnel and Safehouse partnership will provide safe welding enclosures to all areas of the oil and gas industry and petrochemical industry on live platforms and process equipment,” according to a recent press releases.
“We feel as though customers come to us and use us based on our customer service,” LeCompte says. “Also, one of our key assets is our personnel, which we’ve always invested in. They sell the company for us. With our background and history, we’ve gained a pretty good overall knowledge of our customers’ needs and how we can meet them.”
Based in Houma, the P3 team has developed decades of experience and trust working with businesses in the local oil and gas industry. This deep-rooted connection to the community allows P3 to place continued emphasis on its most valued service — customer service.
“By maintaining a local focus, safety personnel assist in guiding your company through the labyrinth of federal, state and local regulations,” says Kelly Hebert, P3 vice president and director of operations. “From accident prevention and intervention to education, rest assured that you are in professional hands.”
P3’s knowledge and experience gained from their history and well-trained personnel in the field have helped the company rapidly expand over the past few years. The UK isn’t the only place P3’s global footprint has reached. The company has worked in or supplied personnel to industry hubs like Trinidad, Brazil, Colombia, Africa, Mexico and Australia.
