October 20, 2020
MUSCAT,October 20, 2020– National Energy Services Reunited Corp. (“NESR” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: NESR) (NASDAQ: NESRW), a national, industry-leading provider of integrated energy services in the Middle East and North Africa (“MENA”) and Asia Pacific regions, today reported multiple extensions and awards to Gulf Energy SAOC (“GES”) in the Sultanate of Oman by Petroleum Development of Oman (“PDO”) valued at over $1 billion. With these awards, NESR has cemented its position in Oman for the foreseeable future and has opened new growth avenues to expand its product lines over the next decade in the Sultanate of Oman and in the MENA region.
These contract extensions include Cementing, Coil Tubing and Stimulation, Fishing and Milling, and Downhole Tools contracts for a period up to nine years, including a main term of five years with two possible extensions of two years each, with contracts expiring between 2030 and 2032. In addition, a new contract for Directional Drilling and Turbine Drilling was also awarded for a term of up to six years.
Raoul Restucci, Managing Director, PDO, commented: “I am pleased to see local companies, such as Gulf Energy, come of age supported by PDO's localization efforts and In-Country Value Strategy, which while delivering world class technology development for the upstream sector also ensures creation of jobs, training and learning opportunities for Omanis and enhancements in the domestic supply chain and manufacturing. Companies such as Gulf Energy are leading the change in transforming the upstream sector in Oman as well as the region, and I wish them the best for the future.”
Salman Al Maimani, PDO Wells Contract Manager, commented “PDO has always encouraged and supported local companies to take on ever larger work scopes and expects market leading delivery and technologies within a competitive framework. We also believe that to create a successful business we need to provide the local companies enough runway so that they can build a sustainable enterprise around a stable framework. Hence, we are very pleased to see the progress GES has made up to this point, and these contract extensions and awards are in line with our strategy to reward the best performers who show the potential to further contribute to PDO’s In-Country Value objectives. I wish GES the best for the future and hope they continue to contribute to PDO’s and Oman’s success in the coming years.”
Mr. Sultan Al-Ghafri, Gulf Energy Vice President commented: “We would like to thank the Ministry of Energy & Minerals and PDO for their continued faith and confidence in our capabilities as well as the differentiated level of service which GES has delivered over the years. The last fifteen years have seen GES, a local Omani company, grow from a startup to one of the largest oilfield service providers in Oman and the region. These awards and extensions allow GES to further grow and contribute to the Oman E&P Industry and get to the next level. GES has invested heavily in both building manufacturing and operating facilities and these awards allow us to build on this base to bring cutting edge technologies for the benefit of our customers in Oman and train and deploy Omani Nationals as we have done in the past.”
“We are very pleased to further consolidate our presence in the Sultanate of Oman, one of our key foundational countries and where NESR has longstanding history and deep roots. I am deeply thankful to the Ministry of Energy & Minerals and PDO as these awards validate and recognize the alignment and understanding we have had with the larger goals of In-Country Value creation in Oman. Beyond the monetary value, which is significant for these awards, the almost decade-long scope provides the business with the stability that allows us to invest heavily in recruiting and training Omani engineers and field personnel. The Omani talent has provided support to all our operations across the globe, and with this award we are able to intensify our efforts to place more Omani internationally. This is NESR’s ESG strategy in action, with direct bearing on the sustainability of our business as well as social contributions to the countries where we operate,” said Sherif Foda, Chairman of the Board and CEO of NESR. Mr. Foda added, “Additionally, the new drilling scope gives us a very good platform to build on for the next phase of growth and increase the technology intensity in our portfolio, and we look forward to delivering top quality service to PDO and our other customers in Oman.”
