ADES secures new contracts in Egypt and KSA


(London & Dubai, 2 November 2020) ADES International Holding PLC ("ADES" or the "Group"), a leading oil & gas drilling and production services provider in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), provides an update on two contracts in Egypt and KSA.

The Group secured a new two-year early production facility contract in Egypt. Under the agreement, ADES will establish an early production deck floor and top side facilities in addition to a jack-up barge charter, leveraging on the Group's existing assets. The new contract highlights the Group's agility in providing innovative solutions to its clients in the current challenging market conditions, by facilitating early production in a shorter timeframe than it would be possible with a fully-fledged production facility.


In KSA the Group successfully extended the contract for Rig 40 for an additional three months to the end of Q1 2021 following the six months extension earlier this year.



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


"We are extremely pleased to secure an early production facility contract with a top-tier client in Egypt. Our differentiated business model highlights the Group's innovative capabilities and tailored solutions to meet clients' requirements and business needs. By utilizing the Group's existing assets to set up an early production facility, our clients have the opportunity to optimize capex spend by shifting to a more cost-efficient opex-based model and focus on increasing production quicker and at a lower cost. This innovative model further strengthens our position as a market leader in Egypt and coupled with the extension in KSA, offers greater backlog visibility during the current market conditions."
