DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Dec. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE ) — Global Geophysical Services, Inc. (NYSE:GGS) (the “Company”), a leading provider of next-generation seismic data acquisition, processing, interpretation and unconventional consulting services, celebrated the opening of its first permanent regional office in the Middle East on Nov. 19, 2013.
“Opening a permanent office in Dubai makes a statement to the Middle East clientele that we are making a commitment to them and to the region,” said Maurice Flynn, Global’s Vice President for Eastern Hemisphere operations. “It helps position Global Geophysical as a truly global company.”
With an established history of successful Eastern Hemisphere operations, setting up a regional office was a natural progression of the Company’s efforts and is expected to allow for more efficient support of field operations and better access to customers and opportunities in the region.
Global has previously completed projects in Algeria, Poland, India and Oman and is currently active in Libya, Kurdistan (Northern Iraq) and Kenya. This history reflects Global’s commitment to the region and the opening of the new regional office continues this tradition, as the Company seeks to develop its product offering outside of the Americas.
“Our vision for this regional office is to establish Global as a provider of quality geophysical services within the Eastern Hemisphere,” said Flynn.
Global has had a presence in Dubai since registering as an entity in the Jumeirah Lakes Towers Free Zone in July 2012. The Company’s new regional office is located on the 33rd floor of Platinum Tower, a skyscraper that is a part of the greater Jumeirah Lakes Towers area.
A ribbon cutting ceremony and brief celebration, attended by Global employees, were held the day the office opened.
