Remotely operated vehicle (ROV) services provider ROVOP said it has expanded in the Middle East, opening a new base in the region.

Two senior staff members, operations director Doug Middleton and business development consultant Michael O’Donnell, will relocate to the region to staff the new Middle East operation.

The Middle East will now have the largest independent ROV operator providing the highest quality services to clients across the Drill Support, IRM, and Construction markets within the oil and gas sector, underpinned by operational excellence and a diverse fleet of ROVs, all managed and operated in-country.

Middleton said the new hub will provide a quality of ROV service that was not widely available there previously.

“ROVOP already has equipment on the ground in the region, and so is ready to fulfill our customers needs immediately in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar,” he added.

The company is currently expanding, having added 19 ROVS to its fleet last month, bringing ROVOP’s total operational fleet to 51.
