MENAI Regional Update
Wednesday, 21 December 2022
Here’s a Middle East North Africa India (MENAI) Regional Update from Imran Esmail io’s VP MENAI based in Doha, Qatar.
2022 has been a fantastic year for io in the region with multiple project awards from a few hundred hour studies to successfully completing a significant FEED. These projects range across our traditional hydrocarbons market, where we apply a low carbon solutions mindset, and the exciting energy transition space where we have completed projects in Carbon Capture & Storage, Geothermal, Hydrogen and Emissions Reduction.
io is not an average consultancy, we are an early stage project architect, composed of engineers with a consulting mindset, focussed on solving our clients’ ultimate problems, as opposed to being blindly driven by delivery of a fixed scope of work. It’s an exciting place to work and offers our clients a unique approach to project development and the chance to unlock enhanced value.
We have also secured several engineering service agreements in the region, the foundation to a solid pipeline of future work.
