Erbil EPF

Mobilizing Early Production Facilities (EPF) from Dubai to Erbil

Challenge

To meet its production goals, the client required the mobilization of Early Production Facilities in a short span of 5 days. The customer wanted a logistics provider, who could move the load flawlessly.

Solution
