Tanknology Announces Two Additions to Growing Roster of International Licensees

Austin, TX – Tanknology Inc. announced today two recent additions to its growing network of International Licensees.  These two Tanknology partners cover growing markets in Nigeria and Pakistan.

Nigeria: Lagos-based Mayflower Oil and Gas Co. offers environmental, engineering, and project management services to the petroleum/petrochemical industry. Mayflower’s clients span a broad array of the petroleum and petrochemical industry, from exploration to retailing, making the company a dominant player in the Nigerian market.

Mayflower has been certified by Tanknology to perform testing of Underground Storage Tanks (USTs), using the company’s proprietary SureTest® tank testing system, in addition to its U3 Ullage testing and line testing systems.

Ignacio Allende, Tanknology’s Director of International Operations, said that Mayflower’s clients and relationships in all facets of the petroleum industry in Nigeria make them a strong partner for Tanknology in the country. “Mayflower knows the market very well and the company is already having considerable success with environmental programs for major oil companies in the region,” Allende said. Mayflower established Tanknology Nigeria as a subsidiary division to perform tank testing and related environmental services.

Pakistan: Based in Karachi, Tekcellent Private Limited is Tanknology’s newest international licensee. Tekcellent provides environmental engineering and related services, including soil and groundwater assessment and remediation services and environmental testing for UST facilities in Pakistan and the Middle East/South Asia region.

“Tekcellent is a leader in the Pakistan market,” Tanknology’s Allende said. “The company was a pioneer in environmental impact assessment and remediation in Pakistan, as one of the first companies focused on the impacts of the petroleum industry on the environment. Now they are pioneering again, with the introduction of Tanknology’s market-leading testing services for the petroleum retailing market in the region.” 

“We are working to aggressively expand our international presence, primarily though independent licensee partners like Tekcellent and Mayflower,” Allende said. “We are always on the lookout for companies with strong local ties and expertise in their country’s petroleum industry. Tanknology’s industry-leading technologies, training and ongoing licensee support provides a strong basis for a company to become successful in a growing segment of the petroleum marketplace.

Based in Austin, Texas, Tanknology operates across America and around the world, providing UST environmental compliance testing and related services at more than 37,000 sites per year, for more than 3,000 customers. Internationally, Tanknology licensees span more than 20 countries, providing services to the largest petroleum retailers in the world.
