AFIC is a leading provider of cathodic protection products and
services including; design, installation, materials, engineering,
monitoring, maintenance, and technical support. AFIC was formed
in 1982 as a joint venture between Abdulla Fouad Group and Impalloy
Limited of the United Kingdom. The combination of Abdulla Fouad’s
success in Saudi Arabian heavy industry combined with Impalloy’s
reputation as a world class Cathodic Protection provider produced
a company capable of meeting the unique needs of the Cathodic
Protection (CP) market in the Middle East.
In 1998, AFIC became a 100% Saudi owned entity. AFIC’s steady
increase in regional projects and accreditation, as a quality
supplier of engineering services and materials is unparalleled
in the Middle East CP market place. AFIC enjoys a multitude of
partnering agreements with material and technical service providers
from USA, Canada, the UK, Europe and Asia. AFIC is able to design
and supply turnkey CP systems and/or Corrosion Monitoring Systems
(CMS) to meet virtually any requirement. AFIC supplies cathodic
protection products and engineering services to major oil &
gas, and petrochemical companies in Saudi Arabia and Middle Eastern
Region. Additionally, AFIC is a priority subcontractor to major
international and local contractors.
the last five years, AFIC has been extensively working with Saudi
Aramco on the design and construction of CP systems to protect
the down hole and surface casings of oil and gas wells in the
existing and new oil and gas fields. The CP design includes solutions
for single wells and multi-well drill sites. As a result of AFIC’s
contribution in the design of a CP solution for these complicated
multi well platforms, Saudi Aramco published a technical paper
on “Cathodic Protection Design for Multi-Well Sites”
in the 2004 Middle East Corrosion Conference in Bahrain.
