The Executive Secretary stated that Hydroserve Oil Services Ltd began operations as an indigenous company in 2000 in the Niger Delta and identified a demand in the market for a nimble and innovative service provider, capable of quality and superior service delivery to the oil and gas industry. He said the company had highly trained professionals and quality equipment, adding that Hydroserve has since grown from being a local indigenous company into an international company with subsidiaries in countries in the West African region.
