Iran becomes hub for repair of drilling rigs in the Persian Gulf



Iran became hub for repair of drilling rigs in the Persian Gulf in light of self-sufficiency for maintenance of drilling rigs, Director for Offshore section of Iran Shipbuilding and Offshore Industries Complex Company Babak Abbaspour said on Sunday.

Babak Abbaspour made the remarks in a press conference on the sidelines of the 21st International Oil Industry Exhibition in Tehran.
In the past, Iran had to get the drilling rigs for oil and gas fields repaired in the United Arab Emirates which was expensive, but, Iran has become self-sufficient in maintenance of the drilling rigs.
He said that several drilling rigs have been repaired in Iran and now foreign companies active in Iranian oil projects are demanding Iran to undertake repair of the oil rigs.
He said that the company is currently got involved in construction of two platforms at Hengam joint oilfield.
Abbaspour said that after completion of the two platforms they will be installed in Hengam oil field, which is common between Iran and Oman.
The 21st International Oil, Gas, Refinery and Petrochemical Exhibition by participation of 1900 domestic and foreign companies kicked off in Tehran on May 5 and wrapped up on May 8, 2016.
