Deep Casing Tools appointments strengthen Middle East team amid new business win

International casing and completion technology business, Deep Casing Tools, continues to consolidate its Middle East division with two new appointments and an order placed by a large Middle East national operator for 21 motorised reaming tools, valued at US $1.5million.

Aqeel Al Faraj takes up the role of Sales and Operations Manager, while Mahdi Al Shokan has been appointed as Field Engineer.

This expansion of the team follows on rapidly from the appointment of Neil Hathaway as the new Region Manager for the Middle East who is based in the UAE and is leading the Deep Casing Tools' growth strategy in the region.

As Sales and Operations Manager, Aqeel Al Faraj will be responsible for the overall management of the Sales and Operations Department of Deep Casing Tools Saudi Arabia. His role will involve operational, personnel and engineering support for a long-term contract Deep Casing Tools secured earlier in the year with a major national oil company in the Middle East to provide its drillable turbine technology to support their drilling operations.  

Aqeel has 14 years' experience in the industry, initially embarking on a career as an MWD engineer, before moving into directional drilling, and thereafter took up senior management positions with Schlumberger Saudi Arabia.

Mahdi Al Faraj's role as Field Engineer will include assisting in the initial planning phase, and thereafter, will be responsible for the deployment and job close-out of field operations. The role will include providing support across the full suite of tools deployed by Deep Casing Tools in Saudi Arabia.  Mahdi recently completed studying for his degree in the USA.

He combines this knowledge with practical experience, having also worked for a global service provider in the oil and gas sector.

Neil Hathaway, Region Manager, Deep Casing Tools said: “This is a very exciting time for Deep Casing Tools. We have already seen the positive impact of increasing our presence in the Middle East with major contract wins and recently signed agreements with new distribution agents in the UAE and Oman.

“I am delighted to welcome Aqeel and Mahdi to the team as we expand our business in the region. I am certain that their experience and expertise will be key to enhancing our ability to meet the growing demand for our technology, which helps our customers enhance their drilling performance, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.”

Deep Casing Tools offers a range of innovative tools designed to land casing and completions at target depth in oil and gas wells, providing significant cost and time efficiencies, as well as minimising risk.
