OPC, the subsurface engineering, petrophysical and geoscience specialist, has signed a collaboration agreement with AlMansoori to work with them to provide integrated oilfield services in Abu Dhabi. The agreement is a reflection of the synergies between OPC’s subsurface and well test interpretation expertise and AlMansoori’s oilfield services strengths and their leading position in the Abu Dhabi market.
AlMansoori Specialized Engineering is the leading provider of oilfield services in the Middle East. Founded in Abu Dhabi in 1977, the company has grown to employ a workforce of more than 2,000 across 24 countries throughout the world.
Piers Johnson, OPC Managing Director commented: “AlMansoori is a company that I have been aware of for many years going back to the 1980’s soon after AlMansoori started as a company and were a competitor to Schlumberger, for whom I was working at that time. I reviewed various options, and asked a number of our clients for their views on a local partner for OPC and AlMansoori became the obvious choice.”
Barry Shaw, COO of OPC commented “As part of our international expansion plans, we are constantly looking for proactive businesses to represent us in regions such as the UAE where we have limited exposure. AlMansoori has a significant market presence and a wide portfolio of oilfield services, to which OPC’s subsurface expertise can provide a valuable extension.”
Fawaz Al-Amodi, AlMansoori Marketing Manager added “A key part of the AlMansoori strategy is to offer more integrated solutions to our clients, the addition of OPC subsurface expertise with our existing well services is important part of the plan. OPC have significant experience and an excellent reputation for providing expert services in the subsurface disciplines. When we met the OPC senior management team, we immediately realised that there was an excellent fit for us and OPC were a company that we would be delighted to represent.”
The partnership is already looking at an opportunity to supply training courses in reservoir engineering and well testing to an E & P business based in Abu Dhabi.
