Eaton and Safar Oilfield Services have partnered to open a new hose centre within Safar's 2,200-metre facility in Erbil, Iraq
The new partnership has enabled Safar Oilfield Services to provide customised Eaton’s hose solutions to drilling companies throughout the Middle East.
William Devoto, senior director at Safar Oilfield Services, remarked, “In a region such as northern Iraq, these challenges are further complicated by the harsh environmental conditions in which oil companies operate — specifically with high dust levels and extreme temperature ranges.”
Hasan Shahid, sales manager at Eaton, said the company's high pressure hoses ensured improved working temperatures and better abrasion resistance, which will lead to longer hose life in applications.
“These properties make this range ideal for northern Iraq’s tough environmental conditions,” said Shahid.
Safar Oilfield Services offers valves, oilfield tools, drilling industry supplies, personal protective equipment and environmental safety products to oil and gas firms within the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa.
