GE Oil & Gas to Open New Service Center
To further increase its local support for the region’s gas industry, GE Oil & Gas announced it is building a new facility in Ras Laffan Industrial City that will represent a significant GE footprint for the Middle East and act as a service technology hub for customers. Site construction has already begun and a ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for April 2008. The GE Oil & Gas Qatar Service Center and Repair Workshop will expand GE’s local service capabilities, strengthening local technical support and reducing turn-around times for projects throughout the region.
The complex will include a repair shop, offices and auxiliary facilities. Total plant area will encompass more than 36 000 square meters with the covered area including more than 3000 square meters. As many as 60 people are expected to work in the center over the next several years, including engineers, project managers, technicians, technical advisors, supervisors, and commercial and finance managers.
