In which Mid­dle East­ern coun­tries are you most ac­tive? Who are your clients?

Why did you de­cide to par­tic­i­pate in ADIPEC this year?

WOM ME/MTC has been ex­hibit­ing at ADIPEC since 2012. We use it to in­tro­duce new and in­no­va­tive prod­ucts to ex­ist­ing and po­ten­tial clients. It al­lows us to show­case our ca­pa­bil­i­ties and reach a grow­ing mar­ket within the MENA re­gion where we op­er­ate.

WOM ME/MTC will show­case a com­plete blowout preven­ter stack, emer­gency shut down con­trol panel, dual choke con­trol panel, de­bris catcher, and triplex pump skid.

How has dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion im­pacted your busi­ness?

Dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion has kept us in­formed with mar­ket trends in terms of tech­nol­ogy, busi­ness strat­egy and in­tel­li­gence gath­er­ing in or­der to main­tain a strong pres­ence in our com­pet­i­tive mar­ket.

It has also al­lowed us to have a more ef­fi­cient ap­proach to­wards our cus­tomer ser­vice.

How has the shift­ing oil and gas mar­ket af­fected your busi­ness?

There have been many chal­lenges in the down­turn mar­ket which has af­fected the way we do busi­ness. We have a strong port­fo­lio of prod­ucts, but re­main­ing flex­i­ble and will­ing to cus­tomise our prod­ucts per our cus­tomer re­quire­ments is what has helped us stay strong in this com­pet­i­tive mar­ket. We have de­signed and tweaked our prod­uct port­fo­lio to be more com­pact and cost ef­fi­cient while in­creas­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity.

What are your goals for 2019?

With a re­newed em­pha­sis by pro­duc­ers to prospect for more oil and gas, and new mar­kets open­ing in the MENA re­gion, WOM ME/MTC is poised to cap­ture the grow­ing de­mand for equip­ment and ser­vices in the re­gion.
