As part of its continuing efforts to address the growing needs and demands of the Middle East region’s Oil & Gas segment and general pipeline industries, Jotun Powder Coatings, has revealed a strategic move to expand its current pipeline coatings portfolio. To bolster this move, the company has combined its powder and liquid coatings to create and develop a new extensive range of pipeline coating solutions; providing transmission pipelines with the required protection, both inside and out. The move complements Jotun's efforts to increase its regional market share over the next three years. The move also aims to create a one-stop-shop for Jotun's customers and provide a single point of contact to meet the unique pipeline coating needs of oil and gas companies and pipeline applicators, making the entire process smoother, more efficient, quicker and more economical. To date, Jotun currently holds a 30 percent market share of the Middle East pipeline coatings market and plans to increase its presence over the next three years. Jotun is widely recognized as a leading pipeline coating solutions provider; protecting more than 100,000 km of pipelines over the last 30 years. The expansion move will be accompanied with a 'Tough Outside. Tough Inside' theme and focus. Some of the company's key regional customers include Saudi Aramco, Gasco, Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority, Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company, Kuwait Oil Company, and Sonatrach; while its global list of customers include leading names like Gazprom, ExxonMobil, BP, Shell, Statoil, Saipem, Petronas, British Gas, Gaz de France, ENI and Total among others.
