SGC Metering Secures Libyan Oilfield Project

SGC Metering (SGC), specialists in the design and manufacture of flow computer metering systems for the oil & gas industry and part of Petrofac Offshore Projects & Operations (OPO), today announces that it has secured a contract with Zeit Libya Oil Technical Services (Zeit).  SGC will replace an existing metering control system on the Sarir oilfield in south east Libya for Zeit, a contractor working on behalf of the Arabian Gulf Oil Company (Agoco).

The project, worth in excess of £300,000, will be completed on a fast track basis within 14 weeks.   SGC will supply a new metering control system and provide the manpower to install and commission the flow computer.   Additionally, SGC will provide onsite training for Agoco employees on how to use the new system.  Service engineers from SGC, based in Grangemouth, UK, will travel to Libya to conduct the work.

Paul McIntosh, general manager, SGC Metering said: “As part of OPO’s wider strategy, we are working to expand our geographic footprint, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa region.  This new project with Zeit in Libya is an important milestone for SGC and the wider Petrofac business.”

Khaled Taher, general manager at Zeit Libya said:  “Our selection of SGC for this project was ideal as the team at SGC worked closely with us to satisfy the needs of Agoco and provide a solution that met our requirements.  Though our businesses are geographically distant, SGC was able to demonstrate its understanding of the market in which we are operating which was greatly appreciated and very important to us.  We look forward to developing this relationship in the future.”
