Deep Casing Tools, a well technology business, announced a key appointment for its Middle East operations even as it wins a long-term contract award from Saudi Aramco.

Ahmad Al Faraj is the newly appointed Sales Manager for Deep Casing Tools Middle East.

Ahmad will be responsible for supporting existing and growing new business in Saudi Arabia, delivering on client expectations, developing and managing key client relationships and ensuring the commercial metrics of the company are met.

Deep Casing Tools won a 5-year contract to supply Saudi Aramco with its motorised reaming tools, TurbocaserTM and the TurborunnerTM, a high-speed reaming system that enables drilling teams to land casings and intermediate liners at target depth.

Al Faraj brings with him over 20 years of downhole experience, majority of which have been spent in Saudi Arabia. His appointment was timely and in line with the company’s Middle East growth strategy ensuring the company is well placed to service the recent contract and order awards.

Neil Hathaway, region manager for Deep Casing Tools said: “A truly significant milestone achieved here by all involved and recent exciting times simply continue for us, as we build on previous awards and increasing our presence in the Middle East with footprint and key personnel. It will always remain a key region for the company, and we’re extremely happy to have been awarded this contract with Saudi Aramco.

Additionally, Ahmad’s addition to the team serves as yet another example of our commitment to the cause for our Saudi Arabia operations so I am delighted to welcome Ahmad to the team as we expand our business in Saudi Arabia. I am certain that his 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

We will continue to drive forward, ensuring we provide a reliable and trusted service to the operator with integrity at the forefront of everything we stand for.”
