Cortec Middle East gears up to support drilling firms

The company has boosted its stocking capability at its world-class facilities at Dubai World Central, giving it the agility to support prompt deliveries into the Middle East and Africa

DRILLING companies are in a precarious position right now as they often rely upon antiquated rig stacking procedures to minimise the impact of idle times. During these down times, drilling operators attempt to minimise labour, equipment, and other costs without compromising their “rebound readiness.”  

Cortec Middle East provides state-of-the-art preservation products, processes, and services to meet the often-contradictory demands of rig stacking.

When rigs are stacked (Idled), operators are careful to preserve them effectively to assure their rebound readiness –ability to be quickly mobilised for service with zero loss of capital. This must be done utilizing proven reliable products that are easy to apply without posing any health, safety, or environmental risks. 

Cortec Corporation has organised its global resources to be on stand-by for its client’s needs.  These products and services are available through rig stacking hubs in the UAE, Norway, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Canada, and several locations across the United States.
