US energy giant Halliburton Company announced that it won a major contract to provide production chemicals and associated services for a large international oil company (IOC) in Oman.
Under the seven-year contract, Halliburton will supply a full suite of customised products along with specialised services to support the in-field chemical treatments, the company said in a statement recently posted on its website.
The statement, however, did not mention the name of the international oil company which has awarded the contract to Halliburton in the sultanate.
“We are excited to provide our production chemical expertise and management services to help our customer maximise their asset value in Oman,” said Miguel Gonzalez, vice president of Halliburton Multi-Chem.
“This collaboration aims to improve operational efficiencies and reliability by applying tailored solutions and close alignment between parties,” he added.
The company said that Halliburton’s facilities in Oman will support the project. Additionally, it will manufacture key raw materials for the contract’s portfolio at the new Halliburton Saudi Chemical Reaction Plant. Opening at the end of 2021, the facility increases Halliburton’s capabilities to support Oman and the region.
Halliburton also expects to hire and develop local personnel to deliver the contract’s scope of work, the statement said.
The plant, it said, will have capabilities to manufacture a broad slate of chemicals for stimulation, production, midstream, and downstream engineered treatment programs.
‘Halliburton’s global laboratory and team in Dhahran Techno Valley and local manufacturing uniquely position the company to accelerate the production of next generation speciality chemical solutions while developing local employees and capabilities,’ the company said.
Halliburton is one of the world’s largest providers of products and services to the energy industry.
