Safar Oilfield Services partners with Eaton to open hose centre in Iraq

Health & Safety

Safar Oilfield Services has partnered with Ireland-based Eaton to open a new hose centre within its existing 2,200 metres facility in Erbil, Iraq

The new partnership will enable Safar Oilfield Services to provide customised Eaton’s hose solutions to drilling companies throughout the region, the company said in a statement.

According to William Devoto, senior director at Safar Oilfield Services, the quality and reliability of oilfield equipment are the top priorities for workers in the oil and gas industry. If they are not optimal, it may cause unforeseen safety risks, he added.

“In a region such as northern Iraq, these challenges are further complicated by the harsh environmental conditions in which oil companies operate — specifically with high dust levels and extreme temperature ranges,” the senior director noted.

Eaton’s high pressure hoses will ensure improved working temperatures and better abrasion resistance, which will lead to longer hose life in applications, said Hasan Shahid, sales manager of Eaton.

“These properties make this range ideal for northern Iraq’s tough environmental conditions,” Shahid added.

Safar Oilfield Services offers products such as valves, oilfield tools, drilling industry supplies, personal protective equipment and environmental safety products to oil and gas industries within Middle East, Central Asia and Africa.
