IEV will leverage its extensive presence in the region to provide sales, marketing, logistics, support, local third-party supplies and project management for WWCS’ operations in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar, India, Philippines, Papua & New Guinea, Australia, Taiwan, China, Singapore, East Timor, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and other Middle Eastern countries.
“Asia and Australia have the second highest concentration of offshore structures in the world only behind the Gulf of Mexico, so this strategic partnership to offer rigless well control services in the region is a perfect fit with our plans for international growth,” says WWCS president David Wright.
“With IEV’s help, we are excited to now offer clients substantial day-rate savings over conventional rig-based methods in this dynamic offshore market.”
“Our new alliance with Wright’s Well Control Services is a natural extension of our commitment to provide clients with best-in-class technologies for all their needs offshore,” says IEV founder and Group CEO, Christopher Do. “Oil and gas operators throughout Asia and Australia will be quick to embrace WWCS’ rigless services once we demonstrate the dramatic favorable impact to the bottom line these techniques offer.”

The company excels in applying advanced technologies to replace conventional work methods thus helping clients to reduce costs and achieve desired results within schedule. IEV, along with its strategic alliance partners, has carved a niche as a leading integrated engineering solutions provider in the East Asian region.
