ADES secures new contract in Egypt and extends contract in Algeria

 

These latest deals reaffirm ADES' strong market positions, its long-standing client relationships and its ability to generate stable cash flows from a well-diversified backlog.

 

(London & Dubai, 24 June 2019) ADES International Holding PLC ("ADES" or the "Company"), a leading oil & gas drilling and production services provider in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) through its subsidiaries, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a new two-year contract for its ADMARINE IV offshore jack-up rig in Egypt and has signed a one-year contract extension for its onshore rig RIG 828 in Algeria.

 

The ADMARINE IV contract was awarded by a leading Egyptian energy company through tendering and has a term of an initial one-year engagement, with an option to extend for another year at the same rates.

 

In Algeria, the existing contract of RIG 828 (recently acquired from Weatherford) was extended for a one-year engagement under the same terms and will run through June 2020.

 

Commenting on the contract awards, Dr. Mohamed Farouk, Chief Executive Officer of ADES International Holding, said: 

 

"Award of a new contract with a leading Egyptian energy company reinforces the strength of ADES' business model that focuses on providing tailored solutions and superior services in a highly competitive market. We are also particularly pleased with the extension for Rig 828 in Algeria which is a strong endorsement of our client's confidence and demonstrates our ability to build value from recent acquisitions. These new agreements further underpin our revenue visibility and are aligned with ADES' focus on delivering organic growth."
