ABERDEEN, UK – Wellbore clean and abandonment service specialist Coretrax has expanded its Middle East presence, relocating its Saudi Arabian operations into a custom-built 130,000-sq ft (12,077-sq m) premises in Dammam.

This includes office space to accommodate 150 personnel and a warehouse/training complex.

Initially a 50-strong team will work from the base, with the company targeting a further 45 recruits over the next 12 months.

Kenny Murray, director and founder of Coretrax, said: “Having a strong base in Saudi Arabia is key to ensuring that we continue to meet the growing needs of our customers in the area.

“As well as our team, we feel it important to acknowledge our local partner, i-Energy, who has been of huge support to us throughout our time in Saudi Arabia…this strategic affiliation will continue to be invaluable to our operations.”
