Middle east investments
An Aberdeen-based oil and gas service company has announced investment in growing its Middle East presence.
Centrifuges Un-Limited, which is exhibiting at ADIPEC this week, has announced that it has invested in the region of £300,000 in the creation of its Dubai office and the recruitment of key personnel to head up operations.
Nick Slater has been appointed to the role of general manager, while Gary Macdonald has been named as business development manager. It is anticipated that the local headcount will increase further in the near future.
Centrifuges Un-Limited, which recently completed a management buyout, specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of a range of equipment, including fuel/oily water separators and mud coolers for high pressure high temperature (HPHT) fluid management.
Key markets include America, Norway, Egypt, Brazil, the Middle East and North Africa as well as the UK, and clients include major operators, drilling contractors and waste management companies.
Commenting on the news, Centrifuges Un-Limited business development director Gordon Milne, pictured, said: “The Middle East is a very important region for our business and this is demonstrated by our desire to attend key industry events such as ADIPEC, but also to take this a large step further by creating a permanent presence there.
“The recent opening of our office in Dubai is a significant milestone in the evolution of our company and will play an important role in correctly positioning us close to the marketplace. This is already paying dividends and we are delighted that our strategy has helped us to win some significant pieces of work already.”
