American Gilsonite continues expanding customer base in the Middle East at ADIPEC 2019
December 20, 2019
American Gilsonite once again had a presence at one of the world’s largest and most influential oil and gas conferences – the 2019 Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC). This year’s four-day event, held in November 2019, had a record-breaking attendance of more than 155,000 industry professionals from around the globe.
Alongside other companies that help shape the future of oil and gas landscape, American Gilsonite leveraged the opportunity at the conference to showcase the superior advantages of true Gilsonite® and provide information on the strength, flexibility, extreme light weight and environmental safety of Gilsonite® uintaite.
In addition to participating in the conference, the AGC Eastern Hemisphere Marketing and Sales Team hosted an ADIPEC After Party at the prestigious Azura Lounge at The St. Regis in the Abu Dhabi Corniche district. Attendees enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and had the opportunity to learn more about the unmatched benefits of Gilsonite® in cementing and drilling fluids in virtually any downhole environment worldwide, as well as discuss their specific product and business needs with the AGC team.
Craig Mueller – VP and Chief Commercial Officer; Ghery Sotomayor – Senior Account Manager, Drilling Fluids; Ashley Barnes – Senior Marketing & Sales Analyst; and Rozalina Bojey – Marketing Coordinator for the Middle East and Far East markets represented American Gilsonite at the conference and after party. The AGC team was impressed with attendance at both events and appreciated the meaningful interactions with regional customers and potential business partners.
“This year’s participation at ADIPEC, and the customer social event we had the pleasure to host, were invigorating. As AGC moves closer to our goal of becoming a major local player in the Middle East, we continue to be amazed by the level of engagement and energy we see from the industry in this part of the world,” said Craig Mueller, VP and Chief Commercial Officer.
