NOV (National Oilwell Varco) dates back over 150 years, with products and services focused on the oil and gas industry. From fossil fuel recovery and processing to sustainable energy production, NOV covers a wide gamut of innovative solutions for various industrial applications.
The origins of NOV can be traced back to 1862 with the founding of Oilwell Supply, an oil pump and derricks manufacturer and distributor. National Supply was a similar company created in 1893. Over time, mergers and acquisitions brought these two companies together alongside other successful brands like Varco. In 2005, National Oilwell Varco was formed and later simplified to NOV.
This complex history shows NOVs product and service offerings diversity, providing mass-manufactured equipment, custom fabrication, system design, and more. NOV is one of the premier names in the oil and gas industry, serving drilling and processing operations offshore and inland.
