Marketing - Wednesday, 14 November 2018

Versalis, the Eni chemical company, Petrochem, a Mazrui Energy Services company, and Mazrui Energy Services, a Mazrui International company, have signed an agreement to establish Versalis Petrochem Mazrui (VPM), a joint venture for the commercialization of innovative chemicals for the Oil&Gas industry in the Middle East.

The new company, launched at Adipec 2018, (Abu Dhabi, November 12-15) will mainly use locally manufactured oilfield chemicals to ensure prompt product availability and competitive advantages in terms of logistics, reliability and customer assistance, within a highly demanding and specialist market such as the Middle East.

Versalis Petrochem Mazrui is already well positioned to offer a broad portfolio of high value added oilfield chemicals under the brand Versalis e, designed to meet the specific needs of the Oil&Gas sector, improving the quality, quantity, reliability, and sustainability of production.

The new joint venture draws on Versalis’ expertise and long-standing experience in industrial production and, in particular, will look to leverage its research and development capabilities to guarantee flexible, responsive, and personalized services to the end customer. The partnership with Mazrui will enable greater proximity to customers and the ability to compete against major players in the market. The partnership will enable Versalis to extend its oilfield chemicals business to the Middle East, (Gulf Cooperation Council countries -  Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar - Yemen and Iraq), following its recent access to the US market, which is an important springboard for the Gulf of Mexico area and the Americas. Versalis already operates in Africa through commercial companies in Ghana and Congo, and in Italy with activities throughout the whole country.
