About Us

The Alkhorayef Group was founded in 1957, and the Alkhorayef Petroleum Company has served the oil and gas industry since the early 1980s as an independently managed and resourced subsidiary.

From these early days in the Middle East, our operations have expanded as our customer base has grown; putting Alkhorayef’s services and solutions to work across the Americas and the African continent.

Today our presence and footprint are truly global. We have built up an international network of sales offices, manufacturing facilities and service centres to safeguard quality, and to keep us close to our customers as their local choice. And our dedicated R&D facilities underline our commitment to always deliver outstanding technical performance.

Now as production moves into hotter, harsher and deeper environments, there are greater pressures for operators to improve reliability and realize new efficiencies. That’s why Alkhorayef has joint development projects in place with a number of our key clients. At the same time, we’re working with engineering teams from Europe, Asia and the United States to develop the next generation of solutions.
