Group Chief Executive's Strategic review (PDF 1MB)

Against the backdrop of a very challenging industry environment, and a disappointing operational performance on one project in particular, 2015 was the year in which Petrofac returned to its traditional areas of focus.

During the year we renewed our commitments on operational excellence and cost efficiency across the business, and refocused our priorities on our core areas of expertise.

We continue to identify and progress cost saving opportunities which will deliver benefits in 2016 and beyond. The strength of our backlog and position in our core markets means our revenue visibility is better than it has been at any other point in our 35-year history.
