GE and Al Shaheen form strategic partnership

Energy services company Al Shaheen and gas technology producer GE Oil and Gas have signed strategic partnership agreements that will support the continued growth of Qatar’s oil and gas and energy industries.

Under the first agreement, Al Shaheen becomes a 50 per cent strategic JV partner in GE’s PII Pipeline Solutions business.

In addition to providing pipeline inspection and integrity services to its existing customers, PII Pipeline Solutions will establish a dedicated integrity and inspection centre in Qatar to support operators throughout the Middle East.

The partners also signed a 50-50 joint-venture agreement to create the Al Shaheen GE Services Company, which is now formed and operating, to perform aftermarket services for the entire GE Oil and Gas installed fleet in Qatar.

This partnership, which includes GE’s existing Services Center facilities in Qatar, will provide an enlarged range of turbine, compressor and related auxiliary equipment services.
