Saudi Aramco visits Al-Khobar facility

A technical delegation from Saudi Aramco visited Welltec’s local manufacturing center in Al-Khobar on Tuesday (June 29), as key stakeholders engaged in an informal visit to familiarize themselves with the facility, and enhance product knowledge.  

As well as viewing inventory and equipment earmarked for Trial Test Request (TTR), the delegation was given a demonstration of the WMIT2 tool, which has been utilized as primary and contingency setting mechanism for Saudi Aramco completions on multiple occasions. 

The day also included a presentation of previously deployed products – namely the Welltec® Annular Barrier (WAB®) – to essentially give the delegation the opportunity to get a closer look at the technology, and discuss with personnel.

Continued development and collaboration
Welltec first began installing WAB metal expandable packers for Saudi Aramco in 2014, before going on to establish the Al-Khobar Manufacturing & Maintenance center in June 2019.  Since then, the two parties have collaborated to deliver more than 60 WAB installations in Saudi Aramco projects. 

In April this year, Welltec officially announce the agreement of a Long-Form Contract (LFC) between the two parties, the highest level of contract in the Saudi Aramco procurement processes, building on our contribution to the In Kingdom Total Value Add (IKTVA) program.
