Flowserve and Petrotec Open a New Dry Gas Seal Repair and Testing Facility

Petrotec and Flowserve have jointly opened a new dry gas seal repair and testing facility, the Petrotec Service and Technology Centre, in the Salwa industrial area of Qatar.


The new facility expands Petrotec’s existing wet seal repair and testing capabilities in Qatar and adds local compressor seal commissioning, inspection and repair capabilities as well. Dry gas seals are an integral part of compressors that are used in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries. Petrotec has been an authorized distributor of Flowserve pumps and mechanical seals in Qatar since 2003, providing customers with a full range of products and aftermarket services.


Oil and gas companies located in Qatar will have access to faster seal delivery, local inventory, on-site inspection and testing services, and immediate repair capabilities. Previously, companies sent compressor seals outside Qatar for testing and servicing, which led to increased downtime and shipping expenses. Flowserve and Petrotec now can bring these services directly to a customer’s doorstep, thus reducing turnaround time.


Established in 1989, Petrotec, a 100% Qatari-owned company, is one of the largest providers of products and services to the energy sector in Qatar. With approximately 600 employees representing 31 nationalities, Petrotec represents a key selection of world-leading manufacturers and service companies in Qatar. Petrotec has strengthened its position in the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) market in Qatar by adding this new dry gas seal repair facility to its long list of service workshops. The new facility was built in partnership with Flowserve.
