Source: 5/18/2012, Location: Middle East

FTS International (FTSI) announced that it has signed an agreement for its first international joint venture, partnering with Summit Technologies Company Ltd. (Summit), through Summit’s affiliate, Selected Arabia Ltd.

FTSI and Summit will form a joint venture Saudi Arabian company called FTS Arabia Ltd. FTS Arabia will provide well completion products and services for onshore conventional and unconventional oil and gas wells in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and Oman. These services will be provided in a similar fashion to FTSI’s vertically integrated business model in the United States, involving the manufacturing, assembly and servicing of well completion equipment, such as high-pressure hydraulic pumps and mobile pressure pumping units. Other products and services FTS Arabia may provide include the mining, production, sourcing and marketing of raw materials such as proppants and specialized well completion additives.

FTS Arabia will also provide transportation, research and development, and laboratory services in connection with its well completion services. Where feasible, FTS Arabia will seek to source manufacturing, production and other elements of its business locally.
