As a part of its commercialisation strategy for the Extender non-metallic tubular product line, Marwell AS has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with EnTech in Saudi Arabia. This agreement allows EnTech to engage with clients in the region to support us in delivering ground-breaking composite technology. EnTech is one of the fastest growing companies in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia providing engineering services dedicated to the upstream oil and gas sector. The EnTech team has detailed market knowledge and a close working relationship with the end user which will allow Marwell to provide value to several projects in the region.

Extender AS produces lightweight and corrosion-resistant tubulars made of carbon fibre composite material. The inherent low weight extends the length of wells and can replace costly corrosion resistant material for geothermal, CCUS, and oil and gas applications.

Extender is working with partners H.P. Well Screen in Abu Dhabi and the expansion into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with EnTech is a further example of our commitment to the region.

Geirmund Sætre, Group Technology Manager for Extender, comments, “We are excited about the role that composites will play in the Middle East over the coming years and we are fully focused on delivering the Extender technology which will add value for operators in the region. The markets reception of our technology has been extremely encouraging and we look forward to working closely with the EnTech team in Saudi Arabia.”
