“We have been proactive in increasing our workforce in advance of increased activity to ensure our new recruits are suitably trained and ready to contribute to the success of AlMansoori, our clients and the industry within the Middle East,” he added.
The firm has also invested in technologies which will allow it to add drill stem testing and open hole logging to its list of capabilities.
Al Alalawi added: “The addition of new staff and services will help cement our position as the leading oil and gas service provider in the Mena region. We anticipate significant growth within the region and expect the offshore market to double within the next three years.
