Pipeline firm STATS Group partner with Saudi Arabia’s Safari Oil & Gas

steelpipes JWPhotowerksPipeline technology specialist STATS Group has signed an exclusive partnership with Safari Oil & Gas (SOG)

The partnership will promote STATS’ range of pipeline isolation and intervention technologies.

The agreement follows on from a successful isolation workscope conducted on behalf of Saudi Aramco and which utilised STATS’ hot tap installed double block and bleed BISEP tools.

STATS will supply equipment, services and personnel from its base in Abu Dhabi with a longer-term strategy of opening a permanent base in Saudi Arabia.

Angus Bowie, STATS Group’s regional director for the Middle East and the Asia Pacific, said, “Forming this strategic partnership with SOG underlines our commitment to growing our business in the country. Safari is very well respected, has many years of experience, an excellent track record in pipeline maintenance and repair, and represents an ideal synergy with STATS and the technologies and services we offer the market.”

Angus Bowie added, “STATS Group has successfully delivered pilot isolation workscopes for both hot tap installed and launcher installed product ranges on behalf of Saudi Aramco and are working closely with major EPC contractors to offer safe solutions on a number of projects.”

SOG is a diversified supplier of products and services to the oil and gas, water, and petrochemical industries in Saudi Arabia. Set up in 2007, SOG is a member of the Safari Group which employs more than 13,000 staff and is one of the country’s top 50 listed companies.

Mohammed Al-Ghosain, Safari Oil and Gas CEO, said, “Partnering with STATS is a major step towards growing the company strategically and to bring into the country an international entity with superior technology that adds value to the kingdom, the industry, creates jobs and is in line with the Kingdom’s Saudi Vision 2030.
