Additionally, GSI will provide a full-service, third-party iron management programme that helps keep customer-owned asset pumping at peak performance; cementing, coil tubing, HWO and flowback support packages; and spool and gate valves. KES and GSI will also establish workstation hubs across the continent to ensure proactive maintenance of equipment and facilitate technical training.

ā€œWe are excited to partner with a leading USā€“based company with extensive expertise in oil and gas service delivery. This partnership underscores the instrumental role that global collaboration plays in supporting the development of local firms. With the support of GSI, KES is committed to providing cost-effective services to the Namibian and African oil & gas industry. We look forward to working with additional service companies to support our broader ambitions to drive economic growth, create jobs and develop local content in Africa,ā€ states Rae Tanyi, executive director of KES.

Serving as a testament to the value of USā€“Africa collaboration, the partnership will support a wide range of projects from international, national, major and independent energy companies. Through the tools and equipment provided, KES will support oilfield operations in Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, the Republic of Congo, Angola, Namibia, Nigeria and additional markets featuring world-class discoveries and assets.

In addition to supporting the development of billion-barrel finds, the partnership serves to stimulate job creation, local content development and skills transfer across the industry, bringing African indigenous firms to the forefront of the oilfield services industry.
