16 Acquisition International - Global Excellence Awards 2016 Headquartered in the Kingdom of Bahrain with offices in KSA, Europe and the CIS, OAK Utility Solutions and Development W.L.L. (OAK) is a commercial developer of clean-tech utilities and a specialist solutions provider to the Oil and Gas and Petrochemical industries. We profile the firm and explore the secrets behind its phenomenal success following their recent win of the Most Outstanding Oil Gas Utilities Company as part of the 2016 Global Excellence Awards. ounded in 2009, OAK is structured a unique integrated business built on four core business lines: Power and Water; Energy from Waste; Project Management and Infrastructure Solutions and Services. The firm is able to leverage its resources and expertise across each of these business lines to provide its clients with a comprehensive range of intelligently assessed innovative and proven turn-key services solutions tailored to meet the specific needs of each client, delivered by its highly skilled in-house Chartered Engineers and Certified Project Managers. In addition, OAK is further able to demonstrate its exceptional market value proposition by bringing together its unique capabilities alongside key alliances with specialist international technologists. This unique offering is unrivalled with top tier expertise, experience and professionalism. OAK’s client base boasts the majors within the Oil and Gas industry throughout the region, where its solutions are deployed to rehabilitate an aging infrastructure often without the need to disrupt critical operational activity. As a solutions provider, OAK encompasses a unique blend of technical, commercial and financial expertise which collectively reinforces our understanding of a particular challenge and allows us to design and commercialise comprehensive solutions. OAK has a mature network of clients and associates and is able to provide funding for its projects through its partnerships with private equity and institutional investors. The firm’s client base is Public and Private Sector Authorities, NGO’s, Investors and O&G Majors. These are a diverse stakeholder group with a vested interest in reliable technologies dependant on intelligent delivery and optimisation. Growing Success in Oil &Gas F Driven towards enhanced business performance and productivity for its clients through delivering innovative solutions and technologies, OAK has shown strong annual growth during depressed oil market conditions as a result of developed technologies which are not capital intensive but are designed to bring about savings for its end- user / operators. For example, OAK’s pipeline technologies are able to rehabilitate pipeline infrastructure whilst the lines remain ‘live’ in service, as we are able to add layers of steel at up to 1.0km per day, as well as conduct spot-repairs using composite systems, offering a 25 year guarantee. Another key example of the firm’s success to date is its ability to provide solutions which address the mounting waste epidemic. The company is able to finance the construction of our modular Waste- to-Energy technologies and build-own-operate facilities which convert waste into electricity. OAK converts homogeneous waste such as bio-solids from Sewage Treatment Plants as well as Municipal Solid Waste to produce a synthetic gas harvested from enriched Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF). This produces cost effective energy for Governments around the world, whilst reducing national dependence on dangerous landfilling. As a dynamic and diverse business OAK is able to present itself to clients and associates with intelligent solutions separating it from its competition. Looking to the future, OAK is focused on developing its revenue generating asset base, in order to continue its strategic growth in emerging markets around Energy and Infrastructure. Pursuing a model of build-own-operate, the firm intends to develop more Waste-to-Energy projects utilising its scalable modular design solution which allows for staged integration and growth. Such revenue generating energy assets will yield strong revenues over a minimum twenty-five-year lifecycle and thus as a solutions provider, the firm will continue to innovate, develop and implement new technologies which aim to add clear and direct value to its clients’ businesses.
