Highly Qualified Experts in the Field

Rolv Flaaten


Rolv A. Flaaten started working within the Oil and Gas Industry in 1976, specializing in the service sector but moved on to be a consultant for companies such as Statoil and Saga Petroleum for many years in Norway. Moving to UAE in 1999, he has nearly 20 years of experience in the region including Kazakhstan and India. With his previous company X3M, a mechanical engineering company, he quickly learnt how to develop his business, deal with operators, secure contracts, and after some time he became very cautious of his actions - some may say he learnt the hard way. X3M was later sold to Aker Solutions. Taking his previous experience with him, he started SAMCO, a UAE based company licensed to act as a local partner for foreign companies and now hoping to the same for M3 Marine & Technology.
