Making a difference for more than three decades.

2018 marks 37 years in business for Petrofac – and we have certainly come a long way. Petrofac started life in 1981 with just 25 people on board. Today we are a robust global business with around 12,500 employees.

Over the years, we have always remained focused on our clients, operational excellence and supporting the market’s changing needs. Here we look back on some of the milestones in our history; the key moments that have created the Petrofac you see today.
