COMPANY NEWS: KBC expands its Mena business [Oil & Gas News]
(Oil & Gas News Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) KBC Advanced Technologies is pleased to announce an immediate expansion of its Middle East and North Africa (Mena) business, where it has been assisting major national and international oil and gas companies with Operational Excellence through its expert consultants and process simulation software for many decades.
The company is particularly known for Profit Improvement Programmes (PIPs), adding tens of millions of dollars to customers' bottom lines, for assistance with Organisational and People Development, and for the advanced proprietary process simulation technologies such as Petro-SIM and Multiflash. The chairman of KBC, Ian Godden, has relocated to Abu Dhabi, UAE, to oversee this major growth programme building on its existing base in Bahrain.
A new Partner, Andy Sakka, has joined the Company to build a much stronger consulting and software presence in Mena, starting with the creation of a joint venture with a world-leading Middle East company in upstream, investment in the UAE, continuation of its strong business in Oman, appointment of agents in Kuwait, increased resources for Qatar and a further focus on business in Iraq and Libya as conditions allow.
Furthermore, some of KBC's oil and gas leaders are being transferred to the region, such as Mark Avis, a senior professional in KBC's Mergers, Acquisitions and Commercial Practice in London.
Ian Godden said, "I am delighted personally to be triggering the expansion of our existing Consulting and Technology services in this region. Our ability to improve the quality of our clients' assets, both capital and human, is industry-leading. We are focused on achieving tangible improvements for our clients, an order of magnitude greater than many of our competitors."
Andy Sakka added, "Our clients already include most of the major national oil and gas companies in Mena, but a significant increase in high quality specialists in this region, both locally and internationally trained, will allow us to grow substantially. "
