What Do Life Support Companies Do?
Life Support is a segment that targets the provision of several basic facilities, usually in politically tense environments, far-flung areas, or places where there is little government control or writ.
In essence, life support services entail all the essential aspects that are required for people settled in the area to live normal lives, and to minimize the isolation or impeded access a far-off area or bad public infrastructure can have.
An important circumstance in which life support services become essential is where foreign investors and businessmen or personnel are required to be present in a country or a region where state control lacks effectiveness, such as in Iraq.
For foreigners interested in the region owing to a large deposit of natural resources or attractive government incentives, life support services in Baghdad involve high quality facilities that rise to international standards.
A leading catalyst for foreigners and extraction companies to send personnel to the country is the extensive fuel reserves, which require advanced extraction, exploration, and harnessing infrastructure.
As such, a large portion of a life support company’s clientele is comprised of people and companies part of the building, mining, exploration, and oil and gas sectors.
