National Energy Services Reunited (NESR), an international, industry-leading provider of integrated energy services in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, has been awarded a long-term contract for Directional Drilling services in Saudi Arabia, for up to four years.

The multi-year contract covers Directional Drilling (DD), Measurement While Drilling (MWD), Performance Drilling, Well Engineering and Logging While Drilling (LWD) services. This award reflects the culmination of several years of research and development investment in several field trials to demonstrate NESR’s ability to drill and deliver vertical and directional wellbores in record times with leading-edge technologies.

Over the last year, NESR’s successful partnership with Phoenix Technology Services (PHX) has led to several DD records across several fields which have saved significant drilling time for customers. This award also provides NESR the platform for the introduction of next-generation technologies in the drilling and measurement spheres which the Company anticipates introducing over the course of this contract.
