Airborne Oil & Gas Secures € 23 Million Funding

Source: 10/11/2016, Location: Europe

Airborne Oil & Gas, the world’s leading manufacturer of Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) for oil & gas applications, has raised € 23 million in a series C investment round from both new and existing shareholders.

Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures (SAEV) joins the shareholder base with an investment of € 10 million. SAEV is the corporate venturing arm of Saudi Arabian Oil Company, the world’s largest oil company that accounts for approximately 12% of global oil production.

The funds raised will enable Airborne Oil & Gas to further focus on growing the business, including product development, qualification, expanding its manufacturing capacity and increasing its sales force.

For its product design and manufacturing, Airborne Oil & Gas has obtained a number of DNVGL qualifications, as well as product qualifications from several leading operators such as Chevron, Petronas and Shell. The significant cost-saving benefits of its products and the company’s field proven track record and blue chip client base which includes Statoil, Saipem, OneSubsea and Total, provide the conditions for strong growth going forward.

Eric van der Meer, CEO Airborne Oil & Gas “We are very pleased to have secured this latest funding. We feel strongly supported by our shareholders and see the current investment as further evidence that our products and capabilities can make a large contribution to the industry’s need to structurally reduce costs. We are happy to welcome SAEV as a new shareholder. Their specific needs offer us an opportunity to further expand our product offering and grow business volume. Airborne Oil & Gas is seen as a game changer, significantly reducing capex and operational expenditure, while enhancing reliability. Even in the current low oil price environment with its rather challenging market conditions our strong business potential is recognised, as emphasised by our ability to raise significant funds under current circumstances.”

“We are delighted with the investment opportunity into Airborne Oil & Gas. Corrosion in midstream infrastructure is a global problem; Airborne Oil & Gas’ product offering is highly compelling to the oil and gas industry and to Saudi Aramco. We look forward to working with the AOG team to further develop the company’s already unique offerings and to growing the business.” says Majid Mufti, CEO of SAEV.

Following the transaction, the shareholder base of AOG includes HPE Growth Capital, Shell, Chevron Technology Ventures, Evonik, Saudi Aramco, Adveq, founders and management.
