MIS enters the Iraqi market



UAE-based MIS Group (Maritime Industrial Services - OSE: MIS), announced the appointment of Chris Parker MBE, as Executive Vice President for MIS Iraq.

Parker will focus on reinforcing MIS’ presence in Iraq’s oil and gas sector.  This decision is in line with MIS’ strategy for renewed growth which will see the company placing additional resources and attention to this growing market, in addition to its existing Sunbelt safety operations in the Kurdish region.

Parker has extensive experience in handling complex and large scale projects in Iraq. His experience is complemented with his knowledge of the Middle East oil and gas sector having headed a leading international seismic data acquisition company for the energy sector and delivered oil and gas related consulting services in some of the world’s most extreme regions.

“Chris’ deep knowledge of this market is already evident as he has already identified several qualified prospects for MIS to partner with in Iraq, thereby leveraging the local market expertise of these partners”, commented Kevin Hudson, MIS Managing Director.

The Group sees opportunities to market all its value streams across the oil and gas sector in Iraq through setting up its business in partnership with established Iraqi companies focused on this sector.

“Iraq’s economy is growing rapidly with a large portion of that growth representing the rebuilding and renewing of the oil and gas infrastructure. With its well established and recognised oilfield excellence in the Gulf region, MIS is well poised to offer its services across Iraq’s oil and gas delivery chain,” said Parker.
