Industrial Fabricators

For Both Land & Sea

Founded in 2002, Bagwell Energy Services (Bagwell) began as a mechanical contractor specializing in the repair and maintenance of natural gas engines, generators, and compressors.

Privately held and locally owned and operated, we are now one of the premier land and offshore construction fabrication companies, serving the oil and gas industries with the manufacture of fabrication modules, production equipment, piping, skids, vessels, tanks, platforms, jackets and more for offshore oil and gas exploration and production.


Building on History

With the origins of the company tracing back nearly 40 years, Bagwell initially built its fabrication business at a Louisiana Highway 14 location, then expanded in the mid-1990s as a Iberia Parish tenant with new manufacturing space and a slip terminal at the Twin Parish Port in Delcambre Louisiana, on Bayou Carlin. This allowed the company to support offshore oil and gas production with easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico.

After selling its assets to the Shaw Group 20 years ago, and later reemerging as Bagwell, the Delcambre, LA company further reinvented itself in 2014 with new management and the sole purpose of becoming one of the premier land and offshore construction and fabrication companies servicing the oil and gas industry. Original owners Coleman and Rodger Bagwell led a buyout of the Twin Parish Port location from Shaw Group successor Chicago Bridge and Iron Works (CBI), returning to their original port location and bringing the company full circle with an innovative, experienced, hands-on leadership team.

Today, Bagwell understands the critical needs of the oil and gas industry, aided by experienced personnel in all aspects of production. Expanding its services as industrial fabricators to the chemical manufacturing and liquefied natural gas processing industries, as well as serving its offshore and onshore oil and gas customers in Texas, Louisiana and upper Midwest states, Bagwell has built a reputation for diverse capabilities without compromising the integrity of its services.

“With this area’s experienced energy-related workforce, our waterfront facility and the investment into technical equipment, we have the competitive edge to succeed.”

Diverse Solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry

After making a $2.5 million capital investment at its Twin Parish Port fabrication center in Iberia Parish and reinforcing a commitment to creating new jobs in the area, Bagwell added precision fabrication equipment for process industry piping and vessels, as well as the installation of new , construction of a 15,000-square-foot addition to its fabrication center and a -square-foot addition to its painting-and-blasting facility.

Bagwell owns over 60 acres, including additional acreage for future expansion in the Twin Parish Port District. Housing its fabrication and office facilities, BES also leases additional space for its hydrostatic, Blasting and coating operations, as well as developing the marine terminal slip in conjunction with the port in order to expand its production capabilities.

Bagwell has invested in high tech vessels and pipe profilers along with high tech welding equipment to handle large spool and vessel projects. This high tech equipment enables us to deliver on time projects at a significant reduction in costs to our clients. Our company thrives on being challenged to provide solutions to any construction needs. In addition to our onshore facilities and offshore construction capabilities, our water access slip allows us to build large packages and ship anywhere in the world.
