The package includes all technical electronic documents utilized by Gulfex as well as electronic records of completed jobs since 2003; Codeware Compress calculations; AutoCAD drawings; data books; QA/QC manuals; welding procedures; inspection procedures; document-control procedures and forms; and estimating forms.

In addition, sale partner AuctionSection.com is offering three former Gulfex real estate parcels/facilities in South Houston—two on Louisiana Street and one on State Street—in online-only events on January 25.
