National Petroleum Services awards Aubin with $9 million chemical supply contract

Aubin Group, a leading developer and distributer of chemical solutions based in the UK, UAE and USA is celebrating the award of a valuable contract whilst in the process of fulfilling an ambitious growth strategy. Aubin has been selected as the single (preferred) supplier of speciality chemicals for National Petroleum Services’s (NPS) global operations.


Ray Stirton, Director MENA at Aubin responded to the award and said “we are delighted to have secured the opportunity to become sole supplier of speciality chemicals to NPS. The award of this contract is a testament to Aubin’s commitment to delivering reliable high quality chemical solutions and customer service to our clients.”


The value of the contract is likely to exceed $9 million a year, as NPS’s business, operations and requirement for chemicals is increasing in the Middle East, North Africa and Far East Asia. Aubin’s customer service and reliable development, testing and supply of cement, acidizing, fracturing and production enhancement chemicals to the oil and gas industry are the defining features that have won the company business around the world. 


As the largest regionally-owned oil, gas and petrochemical services provider in the region, NPS deliver drilling, customized well services and support to customers in the Middle East, North Africa and Far East Asia.


Adnan Ghabris, NPS Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director remarks “NPS strives, as always, to work with credible suppliers who provide best in class materials and chemicals. Our relationship with Aubin goes back for many years and they have always provided us with reliable services. NPS and Aubin technical teams are constantly on the lookout for and developing new products that will meet our clients’ needs in the region.” 


Aubin’s close relationship with NPS was strengthened at the end of 2014 through the signing of a technical service agreement to provide technical advice and support, as well as to develop new chemical solutions for specific NPS operations.


Since the beginning of 2015 Aubin has embarked on an ambitious growth strategy and is seeking to continue improving customer service and product availability globally, with growth plans underway in the Middle East, USA and the UK. Over the last twelve months in the Middle East alone, Aubin has opened a Dubai office, formed a partnership with a distributor in Saudi Arabia, increased manufacturing and stocking capabilities in Abu Dhabi and opened a subsidiary company in Houston to support new U.S. based customers with services in pipelines, cementing and buoyancy products as part of the continuing growth strategy.


Paddy Collins, Chief Executive Officer at Aubin comments “I am very pleased that our commitment to delivering quality chemicals to customers over the years has been rewarded. This stands as an example of Aubin’s dedication to satisfying the chemical requirements of all our clients. Aubin will continue to commit to serving each of our clients this way.”
