OIL & GAS Sector

Riyada Oil & Gas Division – Positioned among the Middle East most competitive global energy companies. Headquartered in The Kingdom Of Bahrain and active worldwide, it is engaged in every aspect of the oil and gas industry, including exploration and production; refining, marketing and logistics; chemical manufacturing and sales; power generation , plus a specialized department in Construction Equipment ,Materials and technology.

Through our global strategic alliances and partnership we represent more than 20 major manufacturers in energy and petrochemicals, Riyada Oil & Gas Division is still keen to increase the number of added value partners in these sectors.

The Drilling and Formation Evaluation segment is primarily involved in drilling and evaluating the formations related to borehole construction and initial oil and gas formation evaluation. The products and services in this segment incorporate integrated technologies, which offer synergies related to drilling activities and data gathering.

OILTECH Specialized Oil Recovery Division

Our divisions main recovery system uses powder pressure generators and special chemical compositions as an integral part of its technology to treat near bottom formation zones (NBFZ) which have low permeability including wells complicated with salt, and paraffin.

The processing technique is based on creating a series of cracks in the NBFZ with the help of small sized powder pressure generators mixed with highly specialized chemical components comprised of mostly acids, surface active substances, and solvents.  The advantages of this technique are mostly evident when treating interlayer and formation intervals when traditional methods are not economically feasible. This technique is compatible with operations aimed at regulating injective profiles in injection wells, insulation of water influx in producing wells and additional perforation with small sized perforators.  These operations can be executed using standard production equipment.  The results are dramatic.

A couple of examples are one well was not producing and when we introduced our technique of hydraulic washout the daily production rate increased to 200 cubic meters per day.

Another well went from 300 cubic meters to 987 per day using our hexane, clay and acid treatment. We also specialize in oil well rehabilitation using some the same techniques described above with a remarkable high return in production and profitability.


Riyada Drilling Company – Drilling Division of GAZPROM

Riyada Group is the exclusive partner of Gazprom in the Middle East and Northern Africa region regarding  drilling and oil production.

Our drilling division employs practically the whole spectrum of  technologies used for oil and gas well drilling in all types of climates and geological conditions.  The drilling division performs the construction of vertical, horizontal and slant directional wells through the use of rotary, turbine-rotary and turbine motor drilling.

Our specialists have a vast experience drilling wells under high formation pressure, reaching depths of more than 8,000 meters.  We are very experienced when it comes to planning and prospecting for new oil and gas exploration having pioneered new oil and gas fields in the regions of Middle East, Russia and Central Asia under the harshest conditions.

Our state of the art process control and well logging stations provide our division with the geological and geophysical information critical for the successful completion and production of the wells.  One of our main specialties is in the well work over field.

Additives and Petrochemical products

This division of Riyada works in the field of oil refining, petrochemicals and the production of additives dating back to 1995.

Our group focuses on the research of hydrocarbon materials and the development and introduction of progressive technologies for reprocessing within the GCC. Second, the selection and implementation of technological equipment and technologies. Third, the development of formulas and technologies for producing additives as per their optimal concentrations in motor and other types of fuel and the dedication of resources to train and qualify selected personnel from other companies to assist in the implementation of the additives and formulas. We produce the following additives:  antiknock additive for motor gasoline, additive for increasing the octane number, depressor additives for diesel fuel, lubricants and oil, anti turbulent additives and anti-wear additives for automotive gasoline and diesel fuel.  Riyada is one of the strongest innovators for new alternative, environmentally friendly, mechanically friendly, non-corrosive diesel and gasoline additives.  With the worldwide ban on MTBE this opens a huge opportunity for this division to become a major replacement supplier of our additives which are currently being used in USA & Europe and have been tested and accepted by all countries that have shown an interest.

Pipe Lines

Riyada together with A.Hak (Netherlands) are one of the major pipeline contractors of oil and gas pipelines in the MENA Region with thousands of kilometers of oil, gas and water pipelines construction experience. Our JSV “Riyada A.Hak” have one of the biggest experiences of any company in the important field of pipeline scraping.  More than 80% of the pipelines built was design and built by our strategic partners in our pipeline construction division of Riyada.  Our experience is far reaching with the designing and constructing of condensate pipelines, methanol pipelines, inter-field and intra-field pipelines, gas and oil gathering pipelines and the following types of gas pipeline; branches, compressor stations and booster compressor stations.

Our main activity involves bringing the gas and oil from the field up to the consumer with underwater and beam crossing of rivers and the special use of pigs to determine the integrity of the pipeline construction and commissioning through all types of geographical and climate challenges from the hottest deserts to the coldest arctic and mountainous regions of the world.  We can offer the highest value and state of the art technologies when it comes to the design and construction of any type of pipeline regardless of the distance to be covered or the diameter of the pipeline we have experienced all that the industry can challenge us with.

Oil & Gas facilities structure

Our experiences in building various types of metal structures for the oil and gas industry dates all the way back to 2002.  We manufacture all types of metallurgical structures of the latest most environmentally friendly technology with all of the international standards, for all types of equipment for the oil and gas industry. We specialize in the use of specialized progressive technologies and unique machinery in order to bring to the market the highest quality, state of the art storage tanks.

The emphasis taken on the design and manufacturing is to ensure against  loss  and potential damage to the environment, but equally as important is our attention given to human safety especially during dispensing and transfer operations of oil, chemicals and gas production and refinement, Petro-chemistry, power engineering and pipelining.

Our unique roll production design allows us to utilize all modes of transportation depending on the urgency of the required construction. Our re-circulating venting system and valves prevent the costly loss of oil and gas products saving on the average of approximately twenty percent of the various products loss in storage operations from other storage tank systems making our storage tanks even more cost effective. In accordance with the customer’s requirements, Riyada fabricates and supplies horizontal and vertical steel tanks for storage of oil, petroleum products, water and other liquids with the capacity ranging from 100 to 100,000 cubic meters.

In the manufacturing of the tanks with capacities up to 100,000 cubic meters we use the industrial method of rolling with off-centered vertical shell and bottom welded joints.  This method increases safety and reliability of the tanks metal structure.  High quality of the welds is achieved by using double sided, semi automatic welding and subsequent radiographic examination of the welds.  Most of the welding is done at a plant thus reducing the amount of welding at the site by approximately 80%.

We currently have a customer base of over 400 companies in 33 countries including Argentina, Italy, England, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia.
