Hermes Datacomms, a leading global provider of managed networks for the upstream oil and gas industry, part of the SpeedCast Group, today announced the opening of its newest office in Erbil, Iraq.
The new facility is in direct response to increasing demand for services from the oil and gas sector in Iraq and will enable the SpeedCast Group to deliver a higher level of service and support in this rapidly growing market.
Osama Oulabi, Business Unit Manager, Middle East, said:
“Iraq has been a strategic market for Hermes for the past 3 years. With the opening of the company’s newest office in Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan region of Northern Iraq, we are well-positioned for growth in the region.”
“This augments our existing presence in the Middle East, with our two other offices, in Dubai and in Basra, Southern Iraq. We are keen to expand our resources within Iraq and wanted to demonstrate our commitment to our customers in the region, to support them on a local level, with local engineers on hand and 24/7 service and support.”
Hermes Datacomms currently provides communications to 16 sites, supporting major operators and service companies in the region.
