An Aberdeen-headquartered well technology firm said a new multimillion-pound order showed the decision to target the Middle East market was paying dividends.
Deep Casing Tools (DCT) said today that it had clinched a £2.4 million contract to supply an unspecified operator in the region with 27 “motorised reaming tools”.
DCT’s TurbocaserTM equipment helps drilling teams land casings and liners at the right depth.
The same operator placed a £790,000 order for 16 tools less than a year ago.
Last June, DCT hired Neil Hathaway as its Middle East region manager to spearhead its expansion there.
At the end of 2018, DCT beefed up its Middle East team with the appointments of Aqeel
Al Faraj as sales and operations manager and Mahdi Al Shokan as field engineer.
Mr Hathaway said: “This is a very exciting time for us, as we build on the already positive impact of increasing our presence in the Middle East.
“It is a key region for the company, and we’re delighted to add this award to the impressive order book built up in recent years with this important operator.
“We continue to gain traction in the UAE and Kuwait, consolidating our position in the Middle East and validating our leading-edge technology.”
DCT, which is backed by EV Private Equity, designs and manufactures a range of innovative products for well construction, well completion, and casing recovery.
