OSSO, the specialist fluid temperature control and separation solutions provider, has seen its Middle East revenue double following a significant investment into its Middle Eastern mud cooling offering
This has seen the company expand its fleet size by 150% and add a full turnkey service offering.
Following growing customer demand in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), OSSO invested significantly to enhance its offering and add industrial land chillers to its mud cooling fleet. This has enabled the business to provide Middle Eastern operators with a full turnkey mud cooling service, removing the need for multiple partners on projects.
The higher temperature and deeper gas wells in the Middle East mean effective mud cooling is essential to commercially viable drilling in the region. By using land chillers in tandem with mud coolers, drilling operators can ensure drilling fluids remain within an optimal temperature range, enabling better performance, improved drilling efficiency, and enhanced wellbore stability. Furthermore, the effective use of chilling can greatly reduce the water requirements of projects.
Through this investment OSSO will provide an additional 14,000 manhours of employment locally in the region. The additional equipment added to the fleet has also been constructed in the Middle East.
James Scullion, CEO, OSSO, said, “The Middle East is a key region for OSSO as we execute our global growth and geographic expansion strategy. The region is going through a hugely exciting time with significant investments leading to an increase in domestic energy demand, and there are also significant opportunities in growing exports of LNG.
“We view the Middle East as being one of our key revenue driving geographies and have already seen a strong reaction from the market in response to our investment, opening a series of new key accounts and adding a seven-figure value to our revenue in the region.”
