Sterling Expands Kurdistan Offices to Support Growing Business

Source: 3/26/2014, Location: Middle East

Sterling Global Operations (SGO), a global stability operations company, has expanded its Kurdistan operations center to support the company’s oil and gas industry projects, demining activities, and other work in Kurdistan and Iraq.

SGO also has established a 200,000 square-foot regional logistics hub near Erbil for equipment storage, vehicle maintenance and employee training.

Both formally opened on March 27, with visits from commercial oil and gas industry leaders; local and regional government officials; U.S. State Department staff members and other guests.

“In the last year SGO has had 13 contracts for humanitarian demining work in Kurdistan as well as with international oil and gas companies to ensure prospective exploration areas were cleared of unexploded ordnance,” said Alan Weakley, SGO president and chief operating officer. “We see that growth continuing.

“We’ve forward-based these important functions to ensure we have the administrative and logistical infrastructure in place to react quickly and effectively to meet the requirements – which are sometimes fast-developing – of our government and private sector clients,” Weakley added.

Erbil is the capital of Iraq’s Kurdish region and seat of the Kurdish Regional Government.

SGO’s offices are located in an area of Erbil called English Village. The two adjoining offices comprise 1,500 square feet. One office is responsible for administrative and financial support for SGO’s Iraq projects; the other provides the same function for regional contracts.

The offices are staffed by 11 SGO employees. Another nine serve at the logistics hub.

Sterling Global Operations is an employee-owned stability operations company employing approximately 3,500 professionals worldwide. The company serves customers with munitions response; intelligence support; logistics; security operations and other services in some of the world’s most austere and hostile environments.
