Working with Baker Hughes, a General Electric company, the contract includes the supply of all equipment, material, personnel and services. It comprises of gas lift valves, spare parts and services on a call out basis to Occidental Petroleum in Oman, in their concessions in northwestern Oman in blocks 9, 27 and 62.
Preparations are also underway for work to begin with Garlock Pipeline Technologies (GPT) on a contract to supply various sizes of insulation gaskets to Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), working in collaboration with Oman Oil Industry Supplies and Services. Edgo and GPT have been supplying PDO for over 20 years and have earned top tier supplier status.
