Wireline to expand activities in Oman
Muscat, March 28, 2011
UK-based Wireline Engineering, a well intervention technology specialist, signed an agency agreement with a local company in Oman to further develop its activities in the Omani market.
The one-year agreement with Oman Oil Industries Supplies and Services Company (OOISS) has options to extend annually and is showing early signs of success with the first rental equipment mobilised for offshore and onshore wells operated by a number of oil and gas companies, a statement said.
Under the agreement, OOISS will provide local support and promote Wireline Engineering’s full product portfolio to oil and gas firms in Oman. High customer demand is expected for its world-leading open and cased hole roller bogie technology as well as specialised gas lift and oriented perforating tools, the statement added.
“Expansion into Oman is another major step for Wireline Engineering to enhance its presence in the Middle East,” said Bill Petrie, managing director of Wireline Engineering.
“There is huge scope for specialist wireline conveyance products in Oman and in particular our Roller Bogie technology, which is widely acknowledged as an effective solution for downhole operations in deviated wells, is already proving popular.”
“OOISS is a highly professional company and an excellent fit for us. The company is a successful and established player in the Omani oil and gas industry with extensive presence and knowledge of the market. It has the contacts and infrastructure to support our needs and we look forward to working with their team over the coming years,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
