The petroleum industry plays a key role in the Egyptian economy. It is one of four main sources of foreign exchange with Egypt being currently an oil exporter. Egyptian oil production comes from four main areas: the Gulf of Suez, the Western Desert, the Eastern Desert, and the Sinai Peninsula.
In addition to its role as an oil exporter, Egypt has strategic importance because of its operation of the Suez Canal and Sumed (Suez-Mediterranean) Pipeline. These are two routes for export of Arabian Gulf oil. The Sumed pipeline is an alternative to the Suez Canal for transporting oil from the Arabian Gulf region to the Mediterranean. The 200-mile pipeline runs from Ain Sukhna on the Gulf of Suez to Sidi Kerir on the Mediterranean.
East Coast Petroleum Services (ECPS) was launched in 2009 to serve the oil sector in the Egyptian market through providing directional survey services.
ECPS is a subsidiary of Green Valley Group, and offers a wide range of wire line skid units with separate skids or combination skid units designed to work in markets that require advanced production and reservoir engineering, petro physical and geophysical data acquisition services.
ECPS is also a specialized service provider in drilling and borehole surveys and is considered a global branch of Liu-He company based in China.
