LOS ANGELES and ABU DHABI, UAE – June 25, 2020 – OriginClear Inc. (OTC: OCLN), The Water Company For The New Economy™, today announces it has entered into an Agency Agreement with AlMansoori Specialized Engineering (MSE), a unit of AlMansoori Group. MSE is the leading provider of oilfield services in the Middle East. Founded in 1977, the company has grown to a skilled workforce of over 3,000 across 24 countries throughout the region.
The alliance is intended to capitalize on efforts by OriginClear’s licensee in Oman, Special Oilfield Services, with which MSE has a joint venture, so that achievements in Oman can be expanded throughout the region.
“Similar to our recent strategic partnership with Permionics of India, OriginClear now partners with AlMansoori, which we believe will be a strategic ally in the Middle East-North Africa (MENA) Region,” said Bill Charneski, Senior Vice President of OriginClear.
“AlMansoori brings essential capabilities as a leader in the oil & gas market and as an oil service company they are with their customers daily and bring a highly skilled and experienced engineering staff,” said Nabil Alalawi, CEO of AlMansoori Specialized Engineering. “We know that effective water treatment is a major requirement for the MENA region. We are always looking for new technologies for the treatment of produced water and based on pilot testing. Therefore, OriginClear’s Electro Water Separation™ (EWS) and Advanced Oxidation (AOx™) technologies are a leap forward in chemical free water treatment.”
Alalawi added, “Our division was created to oversee product development and the manufacturing process as well as enhance relations with current and prospective partners. Our business is looking to create any technology or equipment for use in the oil and gas industry from our Abu Dhabi base. The fit with OriginClear is perfect.”
“The introduction of OriginClear to AlMansoori is a result of our joint venture in Oman, Special Oilfield Services (SOS). SOS has been a licensee of OriginClear’s EWS and AOx technology since late 2018 and we expect to benefit from their early efforts.”
“Commercializing a technology such as EWS and AOx overseas has many hurdles, including having the engineering support to assist in the design solution for new projects, developing a customer proposal formatted to meet customer requirement and, finally, the design details to manufacture the product,” said Bill Charneski, senior vice president of OriginClear. “And last and most important, customers need training, startup assistance and service, which are best supplied locally. We believe that AlMansoori is best suited to accomplish all of the above for our customers in the MENA countries.”
