Our values and culture

Petrofac is a culturally diverse, international company, united by shared values. 

Our six values are at the heart of everything we do; they guide our decisions and behaviours.

Petrofac people are:

Safety is our first and our most important value; from our people, clients and the communities we work in, to the integrity of the assets and facilities we build, maintain and run.

We aspire to the highest standards of ethical behaviour. This means doing the right thing for our clients, employees, communities and the environment in which we operate.

It’s in our nature to think differently, use our initiative, and positively challenge convention. From the commercial to the technical, we seek out new ways to add value.

We take time to understand what our clients want and tailor our services to meet those needs. We are quick to respond when challenges arise and do everything in our power to overcome them.

Quality and cost conscious
We work to optimise value for our clients, without compromising quality and integrity.

Driven to deliver
We have a relentless focus on delivery and exceeding our clients’ expectations.

Recognising employees who live our values; The EVE Awards

The EVE (Excellence, Values and Energy) Awards celebrate the very best of Petrofac. They recognise employees who achieve incredible results by truly living our values.

At our 2017 ceremony, we celebrated the amazing achievements of teams and individuals, including our HSE and Communications teams in our Engineering & Production Services West business for developing a creative health campaign to raise awareness of heart-related health risks amongst employees.

Heart-related illness is currently the biggest cause of emergency medical evacuations from North Sea installations. Recognising the need to raise awareness of these risks and that traditional literature wouldn’t engage audiences, the teams came together to develop an innovative campaign which uses mechanical themes and talks to employees in a language they can relate to.

At the centre of the campaign is a ‘bow-tie’ diagram which helps offshore workers assess their heart health in the same way they would assess a safety risk. Over 200 heart health risk assessments have also been carried out across UK sites and assets, providing employees access to specialist medical checks and advice. As a result, more than 30 employees have been referred to their GP for further checks or treatment. The inspiring campaign has proved so effective it’s been adopted by a number of clients in the North Sea as well as across Petrofac.
