We respond to the different needs of each client, helping them to unlock more value from their assets across the life cycle. Our service offering is underpinned by the provision of skills training with competency development and assurance frameworks.

Our success rests on building trusted, long-term client relationships, and our focus remains on delivering first class project execution, cost control and effective risk management, building on our track record in core markets to win new business and strengthen our position.

What we do

We design, build, operate and maintain oil and gas facilities, which we deliver through a range of flexible and innovative commercial models that can be aligned to an individual client, project or asset.

How we work

Over the past 38 years, we’ve built a strong reputation for commitment, delivery and operational excellence.

We have a diverse client portfolio which includes many of the world’s leading integrated, independent and national oil and gas companies.

For us, operational excellence is about constantly questioning what we do, and how we do it, in order to drive continuous improvement and maintain our competitive edge. Our digital ambition is a driving factor behind our continuous improvement objectives; we recognise the benefit of a digitally enabled future and the value it can unlock. We believe we can harness the power of data driven technologies to transform our business performance and that of our clients by enhancing worker safety, increasing predictability in asset performance, maximising productivity and uptime to assure the delivery of projects on time.

Where we operate

We are a diverse company, operating out of seven operational centres in Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, Chennai, Mumbai, Aberdeen, Woking and Kuala Lumpur, plus a further 24 offices and a number of training facilities worldwide.

Local delivery has always been central to our operations. We make a determined effort to:

  • Employ local people

  • Build local capabilities

  • Draw on local supply chains

  • Stimulate local economies

  • Engage with local communities

Unlocking In-Country Value in Oman

Petrofac has been working in Oman for more than three decades, helping our clients to unlock more value from their hydrocarbon resources. Local delivery has always been central to the way we work in Oman and our teams have been supporting the Sultanate’s oil and gas industry since 1988. In that time, we have supported 17 major and mega projects, as well as developing local workforce competence and generating in-country value (ICV). We have delivered a significant number of oil and gas projects in the country, supporting major national and international clients, including Petroleum Development Oman, Oman Oil Company Exploration and Production LLC, and BP to unlock more value from their assets. 

Our track record includes the provision of:

  • Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) projects

  • Engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) projects

  • Operations and maintenance (O&M) support contracts

  • National workforce development, training and competence solutions delivered through our technical training facilities

Oman is a strategically important location for us and we support the country’s Omanisation objectives. We are focused on maximising the local supply chain and resources, working hard to be an integral part of the local community.

10-year Framework Agreement

We have a long-term Framework Agreement (FA) with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for the provision of EPCm support services for mega and major oil and gas projects in the Sultanate. Projects undertaken through the FA are supported by our Muscat office for technical delivery and to ensure we generate sustainable in-country value.

Invested in Oman

Having been present in Oman for more than three decades we fully support the Sultanate’s drive for in country value creation and are focused on developing the local supply chain and resources; working hard to be an integral part of the local communities where we operate.

In the Sultanate, we directly employ around 1,000 people, with 30% Omanisation, and are indirectly responsible for a workforce of  up to 12,000 people through our subcontractors.

Through our projects we have generated ICV in excess of US $2.5 billion. Around 85% of this value has been created through the purchase of local goods and services. We are proactive in sharing our experience and knowledge – whether related to capability or capacity development or embedding international standards and processes - to support and enable our local supply chain partners to achieve their full potential.   

Our people are at the core of our own business success and so we recognise the importance of a skilled, competent and capable workforce and put training at development at the heart of our approach.

And we are invested in the future of Oman’s energy industry, helping to develop workforce capability today, and for the next generation.

Takatuf Petrofac Oman

We jointly invested with Takatuf, Oman’s human resource provider, to build Takatuf Petrofac Oman (TPO). This US $30 million state-of-the-art technical training centre, opened its doors in 2018 and is preparing the next generation of skilled oil and gas workers through an experiential and immersive approach to industry training and competence assurance.

The facility was designed and built by Petrofac based on real hydrocarbon plant the company constructs for industry, providing a hands-on and immersive training experience without the risks associated with live operations; reducing time to autonomy and speeding up the supply of competent job ready graduates.

Oman has been an integral part of our history and we are committed to supporting the Sultanate to unlock even more value through our local presence, focus on ICV and long-term commitment to supply chain and people development.
