UK oil & gas specialist names Saudi agent
Riyadh, June 17, 2014
UK-based specialist oil & gas firm AnTech has appointed a new agent for Saudi Arabia and also opened its new office in Al-Khobar.
Having secured significant investment from Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures and Calculus Capital last year, the company has appointed The Al-Shuwayer Group as an agent for both Saudi and Bahrain.
This follows on from AnTech’s expansion in the US, with the launch of its Houston office last year to build on the firm’s global growth strategy.
Founded in 1992, AnTech operates across three divisions, providing innovative product technologies besides directional coiled tubing drilling (DCTD) services and specialist training for the global upstream oil and gas industry.
Its coiled tubing drilling service division delivers cost effective directional drilling services to customers, utilising AnTech’s proprietary drilling tools, teams and systems, whilst the products division is heavily focussed on design innovation and custom solutions to meet clients’ individual needs.
The training is provided through the AnTech Academy, which provides specialist training in Coiled Tubing Drilling as well as training for its own range of products for the industry. AnTech plans to reveal roll out plans for its Academy in the near future.
Toni Miszewski, the managing director, AnTech said "It is an exciting time of growth for AnTech and we are pleased to announce our partnership with The Al-Shuwayer Group. It is increasingly important that we are able to offer the best possible service to our clients in the Middle East, hence our strategic expansion within the region."
"AnTech has been focussing on growth within the Americas and Middle East, as well as Europe. Its staff numbers have doubled in the last year and demand for its patented products, wellhead equipment and state-of-the-art DCTD equipment continues to increase in new regions," he added.
According to Tony, the group's managing director Anas Al-Shuwayer has over 18 years of oilfield experience and has been crucial in advancing new projects for leading companies in the oil and gas industry.
"Combined with AnTech’s in-house R&D team, our new Al-Khobar base will provide specialist DCTD Services which can bring significant benefits to operators The Kingdom," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
