Cortec partners with Weir Oil & Gas for valve repairs in Middle East

Weir Oil & Gas has signed a contract with Cortec USA to provide authorised repairs for Cortec’s chokes, valves, manifolds and API accessories product range.

Under the Authorised Repair Facility agreement, Cortec’s customers will send products to Weir’s facility in Dubai, UAE to capitalise on the latter’s original equipment manufacturer repair and recertification status.

“Cortec is delighted to partner with Weir Oil & Gas,” said Stephen Corte, vice-president of marketing and business development at Cortec. “We manufacture some of the world’s most advanced valve, choke and manifold solutions, which are used in a diverse range of applications throughout the global market. Our alliance with Weir will leverage their strengths in repairing and manufacturing oilfield equipment and provide our customers with a strategic, seamless aftermarket support option in the Middle Eastern region.”

Through Weir Edge™ Services, customers can expect an engineered approach to repairs and support. Services offered include oilfield drilling equipment repair and certification, operation and maintenance services in oil and gas and power plant, robust asset management programmes, engineered mechanical and rotating equipment repairs and upgrades, rapid prototyping of spare part, and field engineering services from Weir’s plant in Dubai.

“Weir has a strong, recognised reputation in the Middle East as a service solution provider, and we are excited to partner with Cortec to enhance the reach of our services even further,” added Ronan LeGloahec, pressure control president, Eastern Hemisphere at Weir Oil & Gas. “Cortec provides an excellent calibre of products and solutions and we look forward to working with their products to achieve mutual success between Weir and Cortec.”
