- PRESS RELEASE
Amarinth, a leading company specialising in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to Oil & Gas, petrochemical, chemical and industrial markets, has won its first order in Iraq to supply 12 API 610 OH2 A-Series pumps for the Zubair Initial Production Facility and has appointed Horizon Development International (Basra) as its agent for Iraq.
Last year, US giant oil services company Weatherford International won the oil field facilities contract that will boost oil production from Iraq's Zubair oil field by some 300,000 bpd. Weatherford awarded Global Process Systems the contract to supply the produced water treatment package and within one month Global Process Systems placed the order with Amarinth for the pumps following the development of a close and successful working relationship on previous projects. The bespoke pumps are required on a tight 24 week delivery, lead times that Amarinth has proven on previous projects in the Middle East it can meet.
Whilst at ADIPEC 2012, Amarinth also finalised the appointment of Horizon Development International (Basra) as its agent for Iraq, further extending its footprint in the Middle East and giving the company direct access to the country's rapidly expanding oil and gas market.
Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, commented: "We are delighted to have secured our first order in Iraq with the help of our new agent Horizon Development International. We see this as a significant growth region for the next 3-5 years and so it's especially pleasing to have our first reference there. It is also extremely pleasing to be working with GPS again. We have built up a very good working relationship in the past and we are currently working on other live jobs with GPS for Iraq which we are also hopeful of converting to orders."
