Give us an idea of your clientele. Also mention some of your recent oil and gas projects.

We work in partnership with all of our global customers to reduce expenditure and minimise liabilities through the safe and effective delivery of solutions designed to meet each individual project’s needs.

We were recently recognised at the ADNOC HSE Awards for our partnership with Abu Dhabi-based petroleum services company ESNAAD-PJS. We were awarded the Company & Contractor Partnership Award in recognition of our integrated drilling waste management services on all four of the ZADCO artificial islands. The aim of this project was to commission and operate an advanced solids control and fluid recovery system to handle and treat drill cuttings.

What are the main products that you are looking to showcase at ADIPEC?

At ADIPEC we will be showcasing our range of engineered solutions in the onshore, offshore, decommissioning, slops and environmental markets. Our exhibition stand will feature an innovative augmented reality wall to bring our technology to life and show visitors the full process for each solution across multiple assets, including offshore rigs, land rigs and onshore processing facilities.

We will also have a model of our TCC RotoMill® which will be animated through augmented reality to demonstrate how drill cuttings travel through the system, before being separated into their three constituent parts of oil, water and solids for recycling and reuse. Our solutions are proven to deliver value and allow our customers to deliver projects at a lower cost point.

What are your objectives for ADIPEC this year?

ADIPEC provides an excellent opportunity for us to build and maintain important relationships in the Middle East. We always look forward to meeting with new and existing customers and will be using this opportunity to demonstrate our range of safe and reliable solutions.

How successful do you think ADIPEC will be this year, bearing in mind the current market circumstances caused by low oil prices?

Current market conditions are still challenging across the globe, but these times can also create excellent opportunities. Businesses are very aware of the requirement to maximise value within operations and ADIPEC is a great platform to allow us to share our solutions with the wider industry.

Considering the fact that we are approaching the end of 2016, how has business for your company been this year? What are your plans and goals for 2017?

(The year) 2016 has been a challenging year for the industry as a whole, but as a group we have sustained a good level of business, which is due largely to our innovative solutions that support our customers’ project goals. As we look toward next year, we are focused on maintaining our excellent customer service levels, in the Middle East and beyond, and will continue to deliver innovative solutions aimed at supporting our customers’ needs, to ensure we all enjoy further growth and long-term success.
