Consistent delivery of GMA Garnet™ to  Middle East offshore oil field projects

GMA PremiumBlast™ garnet and  GMA Newsteel™ garnet are used in several offshore oil field projects in  the Middle East.

One of the major oil fields is the Umm Lulu, Bu Hasser, Nasr 1 for the blasting of deck-jackets and pipelines. Our garnet abrasives products are also used for Saudi Aramco jackets, slipover jackets and decks.

GMA Middle East Business Development Manager Ajay Thanki said that our customers trust GMA’s capability to meet their demands for consistent and reliable supply of garnet to minimise project downtime.

“Over the years, we have been more than a garnet supplier to them as we provide our technical expertise in supporting their specification and technical needs," Ajay said.

"Furthermore, we have the capability to help them dispose of their used garnet responsibly via our recycling plant in Dubai, UAE."

Umm Lulu field is located in the Arabian Gulf, 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE. The offshore oil field is being developed by ADNOC Offshore, a joint venture of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, BP, Total and Japan Oil Development Company.
