HB Rentals Opens Middle East Facility


HOUSTON, (Dec. 10, 2010) — Offshore accommodation specialist, HB Rentals, a Superior Energy Services company, has expanded into the Middle East with the opening of a location in Dubai.

HB Rentals has established a base in Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and is operating under its parent company, Superior Energy Services.

The company shipped more than 10 linkable sleeper accommodation units and a well service/test cabin to the Middle East from its Aberdeen-based Eastern Hemisphere headquarters. This move follows the completion of multi-million dollar contracts.

"We are extremely excited to be establishing a presence for HB Rentals in the Middle East," said President Deidre Toups. "Our movement into this region supports our goals for continued growth as the global leader in onsite accommodations."

Upgrades were made to the units to be suitable for operation in the local climate and additional accessories are offered such as H2S gas detection, sewage treatment and walkways and stairways.
