Permasense targets Middle East for expansion

PermasenseET210sensorsoncoatedpipePermasense sees good opportunities for its continuous pipe-wall thickness sensors in the Middle EastPermasense, the leading provider of corrosion and erosion monitoring solutions to the global energy industry, has appointed STARC (Saudi Trading And Research Company Ltd) as its exclusive representative in Saudi Arabia, to support its strategic expansion in the Middle East

STARC, an oil and gas, petrochemical, energy and water desalination solutions provider, has delivered pipeline and corrosion services in Saudi Arabia for over a decade.

“This move is the first step on our mission to break into the biggest oil and gas market in the world – the Middle East,” said Kevin Clarke, chief revenue officer at Permasense. “It is estimated that 70 per cent of the fixed platforms and bridges in the region are more than 25 years old, while some exceed 40 years. These ageing assets mean that there is a clear opportunity for Permasense’s continuous pipe-wall thickness sensors.”

Nadim Borini, MENA regional sales manager at Permasense, added, “The partnership with STARC will put us on the doorstep of key customers, give clients access to an in time-zone team, and provide us with crucial local insight.”

Permasense has opened three offices since the start of 2015, and currently has four global offices in Aberdeen, Houston, Horsham and Kuala Lumpur.
