Sparrows said on Tuesday that the approval allowed recently formed local entity Sparrows Saudi Arabia to deliver its full portfolio of services to Saudi Aramco.

Its services include drilling and lifting equipment examination and overhaul, specialist inspection, dropped objects prevention scheme (DROPS) surveys, mechanical handling, and engineering support.

CEO of Sparrows, Stewart Mitchell, said: “Saudi Arabia holds around 18 percent of the world’s proven petroleum reserves and is the largest exporter of hydrocarbons. As the national oil company, Saudi Aramco is vital to our growth in the region and securing vendor approval status is a key milestone for us.

“We are committed to the development and training of Saudi Arabian citizens in support of the In Kingdom Total Value Add (IKTVA) program and have recently hired local personnel to support our operations.

“There is a strong demand for our specialist services to support the high level of activity in Saudi Arabia, and our local business is ideally placed to provide this.”

The company has been active in the region since 2015 and was granted commercial registration to operate in Saudi Arabia in August last year. Since then, Sparrows established offices and workshop facilities in the Kingdom.

As part of the process, its Houston-based manufacturing facility became an approved supplier for offshore pedestal cranes for Saudi Aramco in 2017.
