One of the leading exhibitors in the Russian delegation with activities spread across the Gulf region, United Metallurgical Company (UMC), which manufacture pipes for the oil and gas industry received two orders for 1100 tonnes of pipes from two UAE-based companies. The order is estimated to be worth Dh1.8 million.
"The first two days at OGS registered an estimated two thousand five hundred visitors from all across the Middle East, Iran, the Indian sub-continent and even as far as Europe," said Anselm Godinho, managing director, IC&E, the organisers of the show.
"Our effort has been to bring together a spectrum of products and services targeted at the oil and gas industry, to provide a premier forum to industry professionals, seeking to analyse the potential of new technologies that are launched into the market. The success of this forum has been underscored by the phenomenal amount of business conducted on the very first day of the show," he said.
"This is the first time that UMC is participating in the Arab Oil and Gas Show and we are overwhelmed with the scale and professionalism of the organisers as well the participating companies. We expected our first show to be an exploratory visit to help us understand and meet the needs of the oil and gas industry in the region," said Daniel Garduz, marketing director, UMC.
"However, we have received a very positive response from the industry professionals visiting the show, as is evidenced by the two orders we have already received on the first day itself. We have also been negotiating with more than 30 companies from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, India and Malaysia, and we expect to strike some major deals within the remaining three days of the show," he added.
