Invensys Operations Management has opened a new facility in Algiers, North Africa, in a bid to strengthen its commitment to clients in this market.
The new location will serve as the company’s regional sales and operations headquarters, Invensys says.
It features an engineering excellence centre, modernised staging area, technology showcase centre and a training and customer support service centre, ensuring support to local project deployment, according to the company.
Invensys says that Algeria is fundamental to world oil and gas markets as a major exporter of crude oil, piped natural gas, LNG and petroleum products, and it accounts for one-quarter of EU gas imports.
Approximately 90 percent of the nation’s crude oil exports go to Western Europe, with Italy as the main market followed by Germany and France.
