  1. SGO puts tracked armored vehicle to use in Kurdistan to support oil and natural gas exploration

    Sterling Global Operations (SGO) is operating the first Micro MineWolf (MW50) anti-mine armored tracked vehicle - designed for use in mountainous and other hard-to-access locations - in Kurdistan as part of SGO's work supporting oil and natural gas exploration, demining projects, and other services. The first Micro MineWolf was sent to Kurdistan to support SGO's growing operations in the region.  In March, SGO expanded its Kurdistan operations center and opened a new 200,000 square-foot logistics hub from which the Micro MineWolf operates. SGO has conducted, or is conducting, demining and unexploded ordnance detection and removal in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the world. In February, Sterling Global Operations completed a project for Terraseis, a seismic survey contractor, to clear mines and other unexploded ordnances from areas within a 400-square-kilometer section of Iraqi Kurdistan in preparation for oil and gas exploration. The move followed the company's expansion to support of the international oil and gas industry . In Kurdistan, SGO is carrying out surveys; risk assessment; demining; battle area clearance and removal of explosive remnants of war. SGO's demining and unexploded ordnance (UXO) work includes military force protection; safeguarding civilian populations; ensuring land is safe for agricultural and residential development; and clearing areas identified for oil and natural gas exploration and extractives industry mining operations. Alan Weakley, SGO president and COO, said the Micro MineWolf got its first use on company projects in Kurdistan in support of oil and natural gas companies. The Micro MineWolf was field-tested in 2013 in Bosnia and Herzegovenia. A tracked vehicle, the remote-controlled Micro MineWolf uses a front-positioned "tiller" with flails and cutters that revolve around a circular drum to smash down upon buried mines and other explosive devices.  About the size of a small sport utility vehicle, the Micro MineWolf costs between $250,000-$500,000.
