Ramco, an international specialist in the care and maintenance of oil country tubular goods (OCTG) has signed a 5-year contract with Marubeni Itochu Tubulars Oceania (MITO) in Australia.

The AUD 7 million deal involves Ramco’s Western Australia operation, providing Total Tubular Management services such as the storage, care, maintenance and preparation of tubulars for MITO’s clients, which include major oil and gas operator Quadrant Energy.

Scotland-headquartered Ramco established operations in Karratha in 2015 after collaborating with Centurion, one of the country’s largest transport and logistics providers.

The MITO contract will be managed by Ramco through a dedicated 100,000 m2 facility using its bespoke PCU3 technology, designed to offer operational efficiency for internal and external cleaning and treatment of drill pipe, casing and tubulars. A first of its kind in Western Australia, the semi-automated PCU3 uses a self-contained re-usable water system which reduces the need to dispose of waste water and operates to the highest environmental standards.

Jason Hughes, Australia general manager at Ramco says, “With new drilling projects being planned in Australia, we look forward to supporting MITO with the care and maintenance of a large volume of tubular goods over the coming months and years. Our dedicated Karratha team will lead this important project, bringing substantial industry expertise and our specialist care equipment to deliver improved cleaning and efficiencies. We will work closely with Centurion and MITO to ensure successful delivery of tubular goods to operators across the region.”

MITO is one of Australia’s leading oil country tubular goods suppliers with a market presence in the region spanning 30 years. Ketut Wiryadi, general manager – business development at MITO says, “We collaborate with our customers, suppliers and service providers to create industry best OCTG supply chain solutions and we are pleased to have Ramco on board.”
