Omnix/AVEVA partnership to focus on Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar

LouisKhouryLouis Khoury, SVP Operations, Middle East & Africa, AVEVA.Omnix International, the provider of technology enabled solutions to the Middle East and AVEVA, the world’s leading engineering software provider, have entered into a formal business partnership specifically to address the increasingly complex needs of the oil and gas industry in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar

Under the agreement, Omnix, which has over 25 years’ experience of working in this region, will be positioned to offer AVEVA’s software solutions to its customers. AVEVA’s design and engineering tools assist engineering companies and owner operators to increase the speed and efficiency of project execution and enhance operations reliability. Omnix is building a dedicated team of AVEVA specialists who will combine local knowledge and AVEVA certified technical expertise.

“Energy demand in the Middle East and North African region is growing at more than three times the global average and—despite the oil price pressures—our region’s oil and gas sector still has active projects totalling approximately half a trillion dollars,” said Jayant Deshpande, director, Omnix.

“Despite this positive outlook, there is significant pressure on the sector to improve performance as projects increase in complexity. Technology has a critical role to play in improving performance, and this prompted us to evaluate our portfolio to ensure we continued to offer the world-class solutions for which Omnix is known in the region. Having reviewed the market carefully, it became clear that AVEVA’s solutions for the oil and gas sector would help our customers become more agile, efficient and effective amid such turbulence. More importantly, having met with the executive team at AVEVA, we discovered a partner with whom we can truly collaborate effectively, becoming an extension of the AVEVA business.”

Louis Khoury, SVP of Operations, Middle East & Africa, AVEVA said, “AVEVA has considerable success in UAE and Oman where we have direct relationships with end users. However, we also recognise that the markets in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait deserve specialist support and infrastructure. It is vital to have a strong local presence of highly skilled, highly experienced technical resources to provide the maximum level of direct customer assistance. Omnix has an impeccable track record of expertise and excellence across the region as a whole, and so we are honoured that it has chosen to partner with AVEVA and to add AVEVA technology into its portfolio. We can now provide EPCs and Owner Operators with direct expertise and access to a wide range of AVEVA products and services.”
