How did it start?
Bravo Consultancy was formed in 2010 out of Hajjan Drilling Company, a Saudi firm that has built more than 1,000 water wells in the Middle East and Africa to demanding client specifications for industry, irrigation, and potable municipal supplies. One well of particular note safely unleashed, per minute, 7.57 cubic meters of water at a scalding 97° Celsius from 2,665 meters under Saudi Arabia’s Rub’ Al Khali desert. No deeper well has ever been drilled in that desert.
The client for that well was GIZ, a development agency of Germany’s government that wanted to measure the aquifer’s potential. Additional clients for these wells include ENI, Luksar, Ma’aden, Repsol, Saudi Aramco, Shell, Sino Saudi Gas, Total, and Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Water and Electricity, Ministry of Defense, and National Water Company.
