National Petroleum Services

National Petroleum Services (NPS) was established after the successful merger of two family-owned oil and gas service businesses in 2004.

Today, NPS is one of the largest regionally owned oilfield service companies, with approximately 1,300 employees operating in key MENA and ASEAN markets, including Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia and North Africa.

NPS’s current service offering includes: well services (i.e. coiled tubing, cementing, stimulation and nitrogen), drilling and workover services, well testing and wireline logging services. The company is recognised for both product quality and service deliverability, and is widely engaged by leading national and international oil companies such as Saudi Aramco, Qatar Petroleum, ADNOC, Maersk Oil, Ras Gas, Shell, Total, ConocoPhillips, and Occidental, among others.
