About Intertek Westport Technology Center: Westport was acquired by Intertek Caleb Brett in October 2005, and operates with the same experienced Westport managment and technical staff as before. Westport plays a lead technical service role in Intertek's global network of petroleum laboratories and service locations.
Westport was originally established as an E&P technology support center by British Petroleum in 1988. Westport was sold to IITRI in 1993 and became an independent technical services company. Acquired by Dresser Industries, Inc. in 1997, Westport became an independent division of the Petroleum Products and Services Group. Dresser merged with Halliburton in 1998 to become the largest oilfield service company in the world. Westport remained a Halliburton affiliate until the acquisition by Intertek Caleb Brett in 2005.
